If your MB is not getting enough power, u can get lights but no cigar.
If i was you, id get a MB speaker, then youll know if you have Ram issues, but if we can assume youve tried everything with the RAM, then remove all non-essential hardware and run it on Integrated GFX (if possible) If it then runs, try replacing 1 item at a time, if it stops working on replacement of a single item, try swapping it out (dont just assume that item is dead, it could still be power)
Whats ur full system specs?
Im assuming this is a new build? Its unlikely a new MB is dead, but not impossible. The cheapest way around this is to take your MB back to the shop and say its DOA, they will replace it at no cost (if theyre nice and u have a reciept). Then when u replace the MB, if it still doesnt work you'll need a new PSU... a better one.
