Problem with a new MB powering up. CPU fan does not even turn on

So i thought i would build my own server............ How hard could it be :-(

I just had one built for me, and i needed one more so i ordered all the same parts.

I have a TYAN tomcat MB
a AMN 64 x2 3800 and 2gb of ram

I have it all hooked up.

When i turn on the power, the only thing that happens is that the chassis fans turn for about 1 second and thats it. The cpu fan never turns on at all

I have disconnected all the perifs.

I tried with and without memory .

I tried a different PS

Thanks for any help is what direction to go to help troubleshoot

Try resetting the BIOS and working with a minimal configuration: cpu, one module of RAM, and video card.  Badly seated RAM can prevent booting, as well as a faulty video card.  If you set this up outside of the case, you can verify whether it is shorting on the case.
