I touched up some soldering now, it now tries to start 3 times, and the light flashes green and red w/o video.
Also, for some unknown reason my DVD door won't open; I made sure that the power supply is connected; there is a missing pin on the adapter on the mobo, could that be it? Is there is an alternative solution?

What chip are you installing out of interest?
Slowly and methodically, go over each of your solder points and have a look at them. Are they bright and shiny or dull? Dull ones are the place to start your checking process...
Have a look for any solder splashes on the motherboard that might be the cause of your fragging.
Most importantly, don't make a common error - don't just wade in with a soldering iron! Check you connections by eye, then check with a multimeter. Be careful!
Pictures would help us suggest where to start looking.
