could be multiple problems.
1. are you sure you connected everything correctly?
2. try taking out a ram stick and see if you still encounter the same problem.
3. is your harddrive running smooth?

Otherwise, it could be a bois problem, maybe updating it would fix the issue. just a couple of my suggestions .

I'm thinking it may be the beginning of a power supply problem. I had one do that. Eventually it got to the point of having to hit the start button multiple times to get it to fire up. I ended up getting an RMA for the thing.
