Unhappy WONT BOOT...

i have just installed my intel core 2 quad q8300, 4gb corsair ram and an nvidia 9800gt graphics card onto my asrock 1333 full hd motherboard.

I turned the system on and the processor appears to have loaded fine showing speed : 12.69ghz
and the ram shows up as being 4096MB OK.
I plugged my screen cable into the new graphics card and it shows up this first post screen, but nothing happens now, it just sits there with the same screen, giving me the same details.

Can anyone help?

Might want to reset the bios. Take the large watch battery out, wait a few minutes, then reinsert it.

Might want to try with one stick of ram in. It might be showing that they are there, but there must a misconfiguration in the ram.
