    Default GA-X48-DS4 Problem will not start

    I have built a GA-X48-DS4 and i put everything together last night and with old hard drive from previous use of board with different CPU i was able to get in to windows and everything seemed OK.Now i removed motherboard to replace to backplate with the one that came with Zalman 9700 and when i put everything back together DEAD.When i try to start it the fan spins for 1 sec and the nothing it does this over and over with no BEEPS.Does any one have any clue wht could be the problem?I have gone threw each connection and part/gRAPHIC CARD ram,harddrive and unpluged and repluged in and still no beeps.

    After installing the backplate, did you start your system with the mobo in the computer case or with the mobo wired but setting out of the case?
    Is the cpu heat sink touching any nearby components?

    The first thing that I'd try is booting with the mobo out of the computer case.
    You might need to try booting with minimal components; cpu, 1 memory module, keyboard and nothing else.
    You might need to remove the backplate and see if this lets your system boot.

    OK i have broken this computer down and tried to test what i can as far as hardware all seems OK.Now when i had this all apart i took each piece and gave it a good look over to make sure there was not something i was missing.Now when i looked and the back side of the motherboard i found this small dent/scratch in the back of it.With the old back plate on the board this was covered so is it posible that this is the cause of the problem.When i looked at the old backplate there was a small amount of Blue from mother board on the tape from the spot that is marked.This is a picture of it its very small but u can see the copper.I looks like that either a MB stand off was put in the wrong spot or there may have been a screw in the bottom of the tower that slid behind the board.Im not sure witch but to me thats what it looks like.Can this be the Problem i am having with the computer not even giving me a Post Beep???
