Default Just installed mobo, problems

Well I just installed the mobo, everything SEEMED right, but it's not powering up. I double checked everything and it all looks fine. The little orange LED on the board (with the + next to it) lights up, but nothing else does anything. I'm not hearing any beeps though... Any ideas?

Make sure to check all the connections and try it again. Something must be installed incorrectly Im guessing.

well. if the light is there it's getting power so uh...just check that everything is secure i guess, if there isn't any beeping it's not a ram issue. do the fans turn on or what?

Is it a replacement, or a new build?

Did you make sure that the Power switch is connected to the front panel interface? Is it plugged in the correct spot?

Hmmmph... Okay, thinking I had the panel pins mixed up I took them out, used a screwdriver to short the power switch and it's still doing the same thing. Everything is unplugged from the machine and it's doing it. Any other solutions?
