Default Help! New Rig Won't Boot Up!

Okay, I am trying to build my first gaming rig and I have various issues going on. I have an Asus M2N32 SLI Premium Vista Mobo and an 850 watt True Power Quattro power supply by Antec. For starts, I cannot get the 24 pin power connector to fasten from the power supply into the mobo. It stays loose and I can get some power going if I hold it in but it won't click in, fasten. Second, I've got all sorts of power issues. The green light in the mobo will turn on, but sometimes the cpu and case fans will fire up and other times they won't. Then I started getting an extremely loud beep coming out of the board, long and uninterrupted, one tone only. Can anyone help me? Here are my specs:

Antec 900 Case
Athlon X2 64 5000 Black Edition
Antec True Power Quattro 850 Watts
WD 400 Gigs SATA Hard Drive

Any help is greatly appreciated!

just sounds like your psu cable is messed up, or your mobo 24 pin socket,

Okay, I am an idiot...I figured out how to fasten the 24 pin power connector in place. Now the green light is on on my mother board, the CPU fan is running and the GPU graphics card fan is running but the BIOS won't boot up. The monitor screen is blank. What's next?
