Is it plugged in?
Is the switch on the PSU set to on (the I as opposed to the O)
Is there any POST whatsoever?
Is the motherboard beeping? (check the instruction manual as to what it means)
Is everything seated properly?
Does he have spare RAM etc. to test and see what component isn't working?
Try removing 1 GPU and 1 Stick of RAM,some mobo's dont like booting for the first time with extra crap.

And finally, why didn't your friend post here himself? It's not like we're gonna make fun of him.
