Default Nothing Will Turn On!

Trying to build my first computer and I get ready to turn it on but nothing will turn on, not even the fans. The only thing that turns on is a red LED light on the motherboard, I checked the manual and it says that the LED light means its ready to be turned on. I even took everything off except the CPU, CPU Heatsink, I stick of RAM, and hooked up the PSU and still nothing turns on except that one LED light. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Your motherboard is getting power, But like Bruce was pointing out There is no signal telling the mobo to startup,
Double check all cables, and make sure nothing can be shorting it

Looks like a DOA. Mine died while it still gave that power LED.

Make sure you plugged in your 4 pin cpu connector, should be somewhere around the cpu.
