Can you please check to see if the metal processing plate has been removed from the bottom of the HighSpeedExpansion connector? This plate is suppose to be removed before shipping, and if it hasn't been it could short out the board. Please check here for images of the plate:

Are you pressing the power button after plugging in the barrel connector?
If so, and you never see D2 come on, it's very possible you have a bad board. I suggest disconnecting everything. Plug in the power connector.
Verify D1 comes on. Press and release the power button, if D2 doesn't come on, we should look at an RMA.

David, did I get that right?
