Default Problems booting up for first time


I've just put together my computer(or rather, I contributed while someone a little more knowledgeable put it together) and I've run into a problem. I'll start from the beginning.

When I booted it up the first time, I got one long beep and two short beeps. I looked at my manual and saw that this meant that no RAM was detected. I looked at my RAM and saw I had put them in the wrong slots(DIMM A1, DIMMB1). I fixed this and put them in A2 and B2 respectively. When I booted it up afterwards, the beeping stopped.

The problem now is that nothing is happening. My motherboard's receiving power(lights are flashing) and so are my fans. My videocard's fan is running as well. However, I get no beep at all nor do I see anything appear on screen. After a while, my monitor, which is an HDTV, tells me that there is no signal and that it's turning off in five minutes(Yes, I have it on the proper input). I've tried inserting the ASUS BIOS CD.

My apologies for the messiness of the case. I haven't organized the cables yet(I wanted to check whether it worked first, then organize). If you need anymore/better pictures, let me know. Hopefully you can help, I'm a little stumped as to what to do.
