i dont know how many times im gonna suggest this ..... i should have it on copy n paste.

completely take the motherboard / PSU / RAM / CPU and heatsink out of the case and place it on an anti static surface, put assemle the main components e.g the motherbard CPU and RAM then connect the PSU. plug it into the wall and use a flat head screwdriver and make a connection between the 2 pins labeled power SW in your motherboard manual
