My brand new computer won't POST! What should I do?

Try stripping out all of the components except for the vital ones - the CPU, the RAM and the video card. If your computer POSTS, add components back in one at a time until you can isolate the problem. Then the check the manufacturer's website for possible fixes or tips on getting their product to work. If you can't find anything, send their tech support an email, and consider RMA'ing the product.

If you still can't get the computer to work, then one of your vital components is at fault. Swap these components with other, known-good components one-by-one until you can isolate the problem.

If swapping known-good parts in makes no difference either, it's very likely that you've got a dead motherboard. Send it back to the manufacturer.

Failing all this, post here and we'll do our best to help you.
