Default Stuck on initial screen

So I just put together a new computer for my wife

ECS P965T-A v1.0b Mobo
Intel 2.4ghz core 2 duo
2gb ddr2
80gb seagate HDD
1x dvd rom
1x dvd-rw
350w psu
Sapphire x600 pro video card

So, after I have it all together and turn it on, it goes to the initial loading screen and stays their, I cannot access the bios or boot setup menus nor will it boot from my windows xp pro CD. I have tried removing the cmos battery for 15 minutes to reset the bios and still same problem. I have also tried another keyboard, both of them being ps2 as i dont have a usb keyboard and still no help. I have not gotten any beeps from the mobo to give me any help. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, all equipment is new out of the box, other than the cdroms, which are set in the same way the were in her last computer as far as master and slave.

i dont know for sure but i think the psu may be too weak.
dont quote me on that though
you could try taking one of the dvd roms out(one will be needed for windows)
and the video card and see if it works like that
hope this helps
