    Might not be a mem issue, might be trying to auto-detect your harddrive...

    Remove all devices, put only CPU, 1 RAM (in slot 1), VGA Card.
    Try to boot and see if you are able to get into BIOS.

    If unable to get into BIOS, then reset CMOS and try again.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Did you go in the BIOS and set your ram DDR2 voltage to the specified voltages? If not it may never work, sometimes you even need a different stick/brand that will at least start at 1.8V to get in there and set it to your model you want to use voltages.

    Some will start at 1.8 ( The boards default ) and some will not. If you can get in and set your voltages then it means your sticks will run at 1.8, but that could likely be the issue, use Control + F1 on the main page of the BIOS, then go into MIT section and set the ram to your ram's Voltage which is likely + 0.1 = 1.9V or + 0.3 =2.1V But I cant say for sure since you didnt list your model # and amount of ram. Corsair though, some models different sets of the same model have different voltages so best to look at the sticker on your ram and see what it says it should be running at.

    If you are using 4GB 2x2gb or 4x1gb you should also add + 0.1V - + 0.15V to your MCH voltage setting while you are in MIT section, and set refresh to act delay on 52-62 to see if that helps as well
