Make sure that all of your components are properely installed. Consult all manuals. Reduce it to only the key hardware: CPU, Mobo RAM and Vid card I think. Just some ideas. Wish I could be more helpfull...

Make sure everything is compatible, ex: the motherboard. Other than that you can strip it down and start over over I guess, just go over everything, and all the manuals like chump said.
