My new computer was working, but every now and then would not read the wirelss mouse, and very rarly just restart on its own. Now i turn it off after the mouse stops working, and it won't turn on. I get the fans, and no beeps, but i also don't get anything else. Can some one help me.

Is this a recent build or a recent purchase? We will also need the specs of the computer be specific with the make and model number of the system or if its a custom build of the Motherboard, Video card, memory, and installed components.

Lets start from the top. Your build looks good. Make sure everything is still seated correctly. Re seat the memory and the video card. See if the computer will boot. If it doesn't Unplug your HDD and Cd/DVD rom drives see if it will at least POST. Try removing one of your memory sticks if the computer will still not POST (be sure the remaining one is in the correct spot check your owners manual) If you still get nothing try the other stick. Did you apply thermal compound to your CPU? Was or is the heatsink/fan mounted properly and working? When you installed windows did you also install the motherboard drivers?

In response to PM
"ok, i tried to make sure everything was working the only thing that i couldn't put into another computer was the mother board or the cpu. What is the likely hood i could have burnt out the cpu if the fan wasn't put on properly. A lot of restarting the computer could do that?" (corrected typos)

Did the other components work in the other computer? If the Heat sink was improperly mounted you could have caused damage to the processor usually they shut down if they overheat. If the other components worked in another computer re-install them in the new build and make sure everything is in correctly and try and get the computer to boot. If you still get nothing I would send back the motherboard. Also rebooting the computer won't wear out your components, however if you are using the reset button (not shutting down through windows) after getting an error or the computer freezing up in windows that could corrupt your operating system. If the computer was freezing in windows that's a sign of another problem, possible overheating

Put everything back together minus the CPU. Turn it on and if it remains running chances are it's the CPU and not the motherboard

Good catch Mark, Yes Definitely Check the CPU before sending back the motherboard. Sorry I missed that.
