Ok, I Built A Computer From Scratch, New Parts And Everything... I Have A Gigabyte GA-K8U And An AMD 64-Bit 3000+, it was a package deal... a Corsair 512 400Mhz RAM Stick and it won't work... i've tested the RAM, Graphics Card And it won't work. they power will come on, so i know it's not a short, but the fans go, the HDD boots, but the HDD light stays yellow from bootup and doesn't stop. There is no Moniter Activity... nothing, on BIOS, bupkiss, can anyone help me?

Yes And Yes... It's A 400 Watt Power Supply And All The Cords Are Connected fully to the motherboard... When it boots, not even the keyboard lights come on or the optical mouse laser... could Bad RAM do something like this, because i have tested it and it seems ok...

Well It came with the Case, but the fans and CD-rom and HDD all go on and everything so would that really be the problem?

a quality supply costs $80+,so ask yourself the quality when you deduct the cost of the case
