I've created a new page on the Wiki for troubleshooting problems with putting a new computer together. I've tried to go through and add some helpful information, but there's a lot more that could be added... so I'm reaching out to our forum people for more advice.

You can reply to this post with additions, or you could just edit the page quickly if you'd like... I'm not sure how well conflicts on the wiki resolve themselves (as in saving at the same time as somebody else), so it might be safest to just reply here.

Hey Geek, for 'When Your Computer Won't Turn On OR Beep' add 'Make sure that your power supply is turned on. On the back of the power supply there will be a flip switch to turn it on and off so make sure you did not accidentally turn it off when you were setting everything up.'

I once spent an hour trying to figure out what was wrong before I looked at that darn switch. I must have hit it when I was plugging everything into the back of the pc!
