Assemble the mobo, memory, CPU, cooler, and videocard outside the case, hook up your PSU, your keyboard and nothing else. See if it posts.
What power supply are you currently using? If you are using a cheapie power supply, be warned.
As far as standoffs, make sure you don't have a standoff located somewhere besides a motherboard mounting hole. It is possible to put a standoff in the wrong place and cause your problem. Seen it done too many times.
Standoffs are supposed to ground the motherboard to the case. Putting those little fiber washers between the motherboard and the standoffs is pointless.
