Default build troubles

I started my first build a bit ago and thought i could do it fine on my own i think that was my mistake im not completely sure though. when i turn it on the fans and drives turn on but no post it has a debug led that displays ff according to the manual thats initilizing the cpu and its stuck on that nothing displays or anything. i used the graphics card in another computer and it works and i tried a cpu that i kno works and should have worked with that board and still same problem so does that mean it could be the motherboard?
or is there some compatibility issue?

XFX nForce 750i -motherboard
GeForce 9600 GSO, 768MB PCIe- graphics card
4 gigs of Corsair XMS2 DHX 800mhz-ram
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700-cpu
Corsair TX750W 750watt-psu
and also an old cd drive and hard drive for now

Default Re: build troubles

did you plug in the additional 4 or 8 power plug into the motherboard as well as the 24pin plug?

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
