Try to clear CMOS taking the coin battery out from the board for 5 minutes and test the system outside of the case to isolate any grounding problem, then put the battery back and move the BIOS jumper to maintenance mode (move jumper one pin over) and with basic configuration: only processor, one memory stick on the blue DIMM closer to the processor and video card turn the system on. If that does not work I suggest to try different power supply. Please bear in mind minimum recommended power supply is 460 W.
You can get detail information to locate the CMOS battery and BIOS jumper :

thanks for your response.
in fact we had two problems:
first was a deffective grafic card, which is replaced now.
but the board does not boot additionally, when our usb card reader is connected to the inner usb connections.
it does not matter which card reader, we have tried with two devices.
is there anything in the bios, which we have to setup, or does the board not accept card readers?
our model is a delock:
thanks for assistance.
Thanks for the information. The inner Front Panel USB Headers is only for USB ports, if you try other device may or may not work, but I will not recommend use other devices than USB ports in that header, as that could affect the proper functionality on the system. Please check the next link for detail information:

thanks for answering.
this is really pitty.
very uncommon indeed.
i need the cardreader for my nikon camara.
just a information for intel, cause not many rams tested yet.
we have a configuration without any changings in bios needed:
CPU = Intel Core i7-960 4x 3,20 Ghz
RAM = KHX1600C9D3K6/24GX (24GB with 6 modules)
Intel = super service
Most card readers will work off the USB port , BUT you may have to get a driver from the Mfg. of the card reader , ??
well the problem is not windows related.
as soon as i connect any card reader intern to the usb connections,
the computer is blocked for booting up even into dos.
In your BIOS do you have the USB set to legacy .
i use just the standard settings.
The I7-960 , Does not support 1600Mhz ram , DDR3-1333 or DDR3-1066 , it's the ram not the board , the CPU has these limitations.
if i do not connect the card reader i CAN boot without any problems.
Disconect the card reader , download the drivers from the Mfg. website , run and install driver shut down machine hook-up card reader , windows should find & install driver.
"The inner Front Panel USB Headers is only for USB ports, if you try other device may or may not work, but I will not recommend use other devices than USB ports in that header, as that could affect the proper functionality on the system."
this is just NOT the truth.
The support has informed me, that this problem has been forwarded to the developing team.
this will be resolved with future BIOS update.
my kingston ram is for 1066 and 1333 and as XMP for 1600.
but the normal jedec timings are 1066 and 1333.
also it is listed on the intel page as tested and compatible with the DX58SO2.
since all processors for the DX58SO2 support only 1066, my ram must be compatible.
