Anyone got any ideas? I've disconnected everything ,removed the cmos battery and moved the jumper, this should reset it right?

I have tried two different makes of ram in each slot, the problem i get is that themachine "posts" and then just restarts, if i press anything on the keyboard then again it just restarts effectively meaning i cant get into the bios.

The psu should be powerful enough as i have gone down to my radeon 9200 and 512 of ram just to try and get the thing to boot!

Incorrectly seated heatsink/cpu?.....at a long shot... :eek:

That suddenly crossed my mind last night as this is my first build, I thought there was a thermal pad on the heatsink but im not so sure now be cause it was so thin.
If i take a picture would someone be able to confirm if i need some thermal paste or not?
