I have just installed a Neo2 intel board, new 600w psu, new 2gb OCZ pltinum 6400DDR2, new Sata HDD, new E6550 cpu and new XFX 8400GS video.
When applying power the standby mode LED3 is lit but nothing else happens. Hitting the power switch causes the bank of leds to flash but nothing, holding the pwer switch on for 4+ seconds also has no effect.
How do I get this board out of standby mode???

The Asus bios won't show SATA devices.
However if you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (or newer operating system then the devices should be detected. If this is not happening then enter the bios -- Storage Configuration -- Configuration Enhanced and set the IDE devices to compatible. This allows all drives to be "seen" and you should then be able to load an OS.
Well depending on your bios version, it could be an array of things.
First try removing the video card and re-seating it.
Then re-seat the RAM.
If the problem persists re-seat the CPU.
Let us know the exact model of your motherboard so we can better troubleshoot your problem.
When you turn on your computer the system does a POST (Power On Self Test). If the POST sees an eror it will tell the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) and the BIOS will beep a code or display a code that indicated the problem.
Different motherboards contain different BIOS versions. BIOSes use different beep codes for problems depending on the manufacturer.
try taking 1 stick of ram off the motherboard, and boot up with 1 stick in slot 1 or 2.
You should get some beeps, 1 is system Ok.
3 is usually RAM/Graphics problems.
Also try booting with the motherboard setup disk in the CD Drive, it may be looking for files to initialise the Board.
And the obvious, check that all cabling is correct from mainboard to front panel. Power on/off Reset et,c.
View the user manual to see if the board has any jumper/dip switch settings for different configurations.
First things first - once you have all the components properly seated (sometimes if a RAM chip or CPU heatsink/fan isn't quite right it'll cause those problems) clear the CMOS entirely. There should be a jumper somewhere near the CMOS battery - move it from the 1-2 seating to the 2-3 (with the system powered down) and count to ten. Move it back over and then try booting up again. If the problem continues, swap the memory chips. Otherwise repost once you've tried the recommendation.
