I'm having a similar problem, but even worse.
Just got done building the brand new machine today. I haven't even put the sides of the case on, or added in all the hard drives.
1) Told me to put my ram (OCZ Gold VX pc4000) into slot 2 and 4. This wasn't in the manual, so I made it so. Standard power off, unplug, turn off power supply, hit power switch, then moved the ram.
2) No boot device. I forgot to plug in the USB external DVD I was going to install XP from. Powered off, plugged in USB.
From that point on, I have never seen anything past three lights. I've re-plugged everything, moved things around, reseated, cleared bios, etc, etc. I only get to 3 of the 4 lights.
I'm trying to clear the bios overnight. I'm so disappointed at this point. Never had a board have what appears to be major issues within 5 minutes of the initial power up.
