Default i feel stupid again!

ok so I was putting my new i7 rig together, it felt like the first time to be honest.
I ran into some code problems early on, atleast I thought.

with just the monitor connected and the power of course, I went to boot up the new rig for the first time. Got a code "2A" and though it was an error. So I took the whole thing 100% apart again and started all over making sure everthing was properly hooked up starting from the cpu on.

Put it all back together and went to boot it up again, same thing, I kept trying to get into bios because everything else would light up, pressing "delete delete delete"

But then I realized, my darn keyboard wasnt plugged in, and my monitor would say "no input" while the post screen was there, so i never saw it. after the post screen went away all i got was the hardware monitor showing me my temps.

Well to cut things short, windows is finally loading up and I should be using it to post pics ofthe finished product in my antec 300 thread in the oc section very shortly, atleast I hope.

summary of this post,
I am very forgetful about not having keyboard plugged in!
spent about 5 hours trying to solve a very simple fix lol.

I have forgotten to plug power into hard drives before and spent hours tracking down the "problem"

Whereas I, the pwnage, have never done something so stupid and noob-worthy.

jj dude, once I flicked the little red switch on the psu from 230v to 115v while it was turned on. made a nice boom...
