Default Brand New ASUS A8N-SLI Dead?

I just bought all new parts for a new computer. Every single part is brand new.

I've build a few computers in the past so I'm pretty sure I did not make any of the normal mistakes.

What happens is when I turn on my computer instead of getting that trilling feeling of seeing my brand new bios running on the screen, I get a blank. All the fans (including on the video card) and drives definitely have power and respond to the computer being turned on. However, I get a dead blank screen with the monitor light indicating that it is not receiving a display.

Also, I don't hear any beeps coming from the case speaker.

My video card is fine. I tested it on another machine and it is perfect.

Is my brand new motherboard dead? Is there some trick to this board I don't know when first running it?

if you are sure that the speaker is hooked up right remove all the ram and see if it gives you a beep code because it chould certainly respond to having no ram. make sure you have ram in slot 1. ensure that the motherboard stand-offs are installed and that the motherboard isn't shorting out against the case.
