This is the first computer I built and i don't really know what I'm doing. I have connected everything and it turns on. All the fans spin,including the gpu and cpu fans. The cd drive won't open. I get no beeps from the speaker, it might be bad. I get no display out by hdmi or dvi, I'm using the dvi to vga adapter. When I plug the keyboard in, none of the leds light up. None of the usb ports seem to work when i plug in an optical mouse

I'm assuming the motherboard is bad but I'm not sure
sounds like a power supply problem. If the power supply works, the CD drawer should open.
Maybe you connected the power supply wrong. Post some pictures.
