I assume you hear power supply running?
If not check all power connections.

Check all you cards to be sure all seated.

Try disabling everything except mem and video see what happens

Make sure your Ram is seated all the way. It takes a pretty good push to get it seated all the way sometimes. Make certain that all of your (ribbon)cables are connected with pin 1 in the proper place on the drives as well as on the Motherboard. You can disconnect the ribbon cables from the Motherboard, HDD and FDD, then try to boot up and if it gives you any video. If it does then one of your cables are on backwards somewhere on one of your drives.
Good luck

The supplier installed the CPU?

Most suppliers caution that they stick the chip in the socket but all the jumper setting is up to you, so did you set or check the jumpers?

What memory configuration do you have? I believe the Cyrix 300 is the same as the old pentiums, in that they require memory chips in PAIRS... i.e. two 16 meg EDO chips, or two 8 meg EDO chips, etc. You can't just run one 32 meg chip, or one 16 meg chip, or mix and match.

Ram wasn't seated. Had to remove MB and push Ram in.
