Hi! I put together my (first) computer last night, but when i started it the screen wouldn't get a signal, so I tried taking out one RAM and it worked, but after a moment it was a click-sound somewhere (probably the cpu or motherboard) and now the cpu red light is on and my keyboard and mouse isn't getting any power through the motherboard.

I've reset bios but it doesn't work anyways.

All component's fans are working so everything's getting power, but I'm afraid something's broken. :( 

mobo: Asus M5A99X EVO R2.0
cpu: AMD FX-8350 8 4.0GHz 
RAM: Kingston 8GB (2x4GB) CL9 1600MHz 
psu: Corsair CX 500M 80+ Bronze Modulär
graphics card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB

Did you plug the 4 or 8 pin additional power plug into the motherboard as well as the 24 Pin?
