I just intallled my motherboard, processor bundlle. Turned on and the only thing running is the power supply and cpu fan.
There is no video, no sign of life in the hdd or cd rom drive, no POST or anything else.
What could be the problem, here.

......The motherboard is mounted to a Support Plate. The Support Plate can be a separate sheet of metal, or an integral part of the motherboard.
Mounting the motherboard to the Support Plate, is accomplished with either plastic Spacers, or metal Standoff's.
IF, a Standoff is NOT mounted to a motherboard mounting hole, and is just standing out there; there is a good chance it will touch one of the exposed solder joints, on the bottom of the motherboard; and short the motherboard out.
Removing the 'offending' Standoff, or moving to an open motherboard mounting hole; may result in the motherboard working again.
Along with the Standoff's are Fiber Washers. Rule of thumb is;
Motherboard mounting hole has metal ring around it? No fiber washers are used. Motherboard mounting hole does NOT have a metal ring around it? Fiber washer is used on both sides of motherboard mounting hole.
Doesn't say. Statement is, "Refer to your chassis manual for instructions on installing and removing the desktop board."
Motherboard may get it's ground, from those metal ringed motherboard mounting holes. IF PRESENT.
D) Motherboard is bad. Electrolytic Capacitors are bad. If they do not show outward signs of failure, the Electrolytic Paste inside could be dried up. Would show no outward signs of failure.
Computer design engineers know this. They know the Electrolytic Paste inside is a chemical, and has a chemical reaction. The chemical breaks down over time.
This is why computer design engineers use Electrolytic Capacitors, that are rated at TWICE of what is needed. When the capacitor breaks down to 50 percent good, it is still 100 percent good for the application.
Now...................New/Old Stock, or not; that mobo is OLD. (MOtherBOard)
E) Processor (CPU) Very rarely one goes out. Overclocking, and getting it too hot? Oh yeah. Bye-bye CPU.
There is one other way, though.........
A CPU (Processor) is the MOST, susceptible hardware component to Static shock.
If whoever has been handling it has not followed Anti-Static Procedures, drill a hole through it, and put a chain through the hole. See? You've got a snazzy(?) necklace......
Motherboard can be used for a Frisbee, too.
F) Are you running a graphics card? Power Supply has enough power for it, and the rest of the computer system? Motherboard, Ram Memory, Case fans, CPU fan, optical drives (CD/DVD drive), and Harddrive/s.
Does the CPU fan come on ?
Does the power lead that plugs into the cpu fan on the motherboard supply the required voltage ?
This one is a bit harder and once you check it you most likely need to apply thermal paste - but is there sufficient thermal paste between the CPU and the heat sink on the CPU ?
Does the power supply box in the tower case have its fan spinning when power on ?
Is the motherboard bent ?
I have seen this one - poor installation with different sized mounting screws. When motherboard gets hot the motherboard went faulty.
Some motherboards need a rubber insulator under the screw maybe there is a short under one of the mounting screws !
Not sure just what you mean. If your computer is plugged into the wall and the power is turned on, the power supply should be on and the cooling fan turning. Also, the CPU fan should be turning and the hard drive should spin up. Note that the power supply is the main component that must be supplying the power. If you don't hear or see the fan turning in the power supply and the little power light on the front of the computer does not light, replace the power supply. If your power supply is running and nothing else is running, I would unhook all devices and leave just the CPU and video and memory in. If you get nothing, then the motherboard is probably bad.
This may work however i think by ignoring the sound of the Fan you might have destroyed the cpu and the motherboard.If you can try the processor in another machine you might just have to replace the motherboard only.
If that problem is happen check the monitor cable if it is correctly plug to the motherboard, if your motherboard have video card attach try to remove the video card, if the same things happen thee problem is the processor, you need to check the processor, remove it and clean then put a thermal paste so that the heat from processor will absorb by the heatsink, and be sure that the heatsink fan it working to prevent the heat.
what made you change the power supply to begin with? Most cpu fans run off the motherboard, but the motherboard initially gets all voltages from the Power supply to begin wth. Did you assume that because cpu fan wasn't running to begin with, that the original power supply was bad. Not a bad assumption but one that needed verification before changing out a power supply. So it seems at this point that you have an unverified bad power supply, a possible bad motherboard, and a known good cpu fan. Plus at ths point you really don't know of the new power supply is good yet until you see something electrical run with it.
