    Have you tried to clear the CMOS? If not, please see my method in Post #2 here and try that first >>>

    If that gives you no joy please remove the board from your case and take it OFF the motherboard tray and set it on a box or wooden table. Then connect only the minimal hardware, CPU/Heatsink, one stick of ram in slot one, and your GFX Card. NOTHING Else, no CD/DVD Drives/Hard drives, ect and then see if the system will start. If so, add your hardware one by one until you find the culprit

    Can you please post your specs? Did you check before installing your CPU that NO Pins were bent in the socket, just checking?

    Check the link in my signature. I think this may also be the PSU, no name PSUs are known to cause this kind of thing.
