case is an antec 1200, with a 100 watt coller master psu, 6 gig of corsair pc1600 ram, a dvd drive that is not connected, and 2 seagate hdds, and cant figure out if mobo is gone or its bios related

any help much appreciated
 
on that motherboard you want the ram to be slotted (from closed to cpu) in ram slots 2, 4, and 6, NOT 1, 3 and 5 - the system will not post if you follow the general engineers rule of ram in slots closest to chipset/cpu as iv made this mistake before.
