Cool Dell lights

Hi i am currently working on trying to transplant a dell dimension 8300 into a custom case (doing this just cause i can so lets skip the logistics and move on lol) after some customizing of the case i got it in, but now the back system lights show up 2yellow and 2green, dell says that the computer is finding memory but it isn't working, the thing is if i pull all ram i get the same thing and its not supposed to be... any clues?

reseat ram. Check to ensure mb is not grounding on anything by making sure you installed the risers correctly.

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