Components for Building Computers From Scratch/startup problems

Question
My gaming computer is not starting properly. I press the power button, It powers on, and nothing happens. It just runs there. There is no signal to the monitor and if I press the power button to turn it off, nothing happens. It continues to run. Holding the power button is the only way to shut t off other then pulling the plug. My motherboard is a msi model ms-7599. My processor is a amd phenom ii x2 555.
What do I do?

Answer
rob,

         the same has happened to me way back since my old pc....the machine just wont start....so i figured out that hardware was causing the blackout....i swap every piece of the hardware until i found out the memory has failed.....i bought a new one and the pc went running smooth ...or maybe the mobo of yours is the one causing the startup problem...hope you find my reply useful....
