Looks like you'll have to RMA the motherboard.
Just one question, probably not the problem though - are you sure the RAM you're using is supported by the motherboard?

RMA means you sent it back to where you bought it from, and they send you a replacement (which you could've found out with a simple google search). Assuming what you bought is under warranty (which it probably is).

In the UK all goods sold as new have a standard 12 month warranty as standard, in at any point in that period of time a device fails from manufacturing defaults and not by end user intervention they are obliged to replace it. However if it fails within one month (30 days) they have to replace it with either a like for like match or a comparable device of equal or excideing specifications.

Return it to the store in question and explain the situation to the manager, unless it is something you are doing wrong and they can prove this by assembling it and making it work in front of you they should give you a refund.

Go with a family member and if you can take a copy of the sale of goods act with you.

Well use the time till they get back to read up on your rights as a consumer, they can offer a replacement or a refund first time at managers discretion but they can not refuse a refund if the same or a simmaler fault has occurred with a replacement device.
