    Hi everyone! I'm hoping someone here can help me. I just finished putting together my first computer and it won't load BIOS. It kind of stalls at the screen where it tells me to hit TAB or DEL. I have no idea what the problem is. Also, I hear a somewhat loud clicking sound almost like a fan hitting something as it spins, but I don't see this anywhere. One more thing, my optical mouse & keyboard aren't lighting up. I don't know if these are all separate issues or not, but I figured I'd let you know everything that's happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.h

    Please post the list of parts you're using in this new computer. List the parts by brand and model including the power supply.

    Thanks! That made me realize that I was shorting my case by having too many mobo brackets on the plate. It's working fine now. Thanks again!
