Default [B][U]New Computer HELP!!!!!!!![/U][/B]

intel core i7 920 processor
coolermaster v8 heatsink
antec 900 case
corsair 750 watt power supply
6gb (3x2gb) ddr3 1333MH memory
dual ati radeon 5770 crossfire
1tb Hard Drive
MSI X58 Pro-E Motherboard
Samsung SH-S222L DVD DRIVE

When i turn on my computer, the motherboard and fans power on, but the dvd drive will not open when i press the button. There are no LED's to tell me if it is working or not. It just does not open. I have tried switching the power cable with another one that i know works and it still does not power up. It is connected to a power cable and IDE ribbon cable. Did i forget to plug in a cable or should i return the brand new dvd drive and get a new one.
Also, i have plugged my computer into a monitor and it shows a black screen and the USB plugs on the motherboard do not power my mouse. PLEASE HELP ME! It's my first build and all of these cords are really confusing. Thanks

Remove the video cards and plug the monitor into onboard graphics.

It looks to me like your PSU has a dead rail. Try another if you have it.
