[linux-audio-user] problem with new machine

  Well, the hardware has been assembled, but I have a show-stopper of a 
problem. When I try to start the machine I get a flash from the cool 
blue lights on my Antec case, the CPU fan does a little jig, then 
nothing. :(

  So how do I go about diagnosing this thing ? All possible connections 
have been made between the case, the power supply, and the mobo. I've 
scoured the manuals for those pieces, I can't see that I've missed 
connecting anything.

  Here's the main machine parts:

    MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum motherboard
    AMD64 CPU
    Antec Sonata II case with power supply
    1 GB RAM in slot 1
    Seagate Barracuda drive
    Lite-on DVD/CD RW drive

  Any and all suggestions are welcome. I'd like to get this iron running 
myself, the bench fees at the local shops are outrageous.
