Thinking fine I'll put them in the case now, He put them in seperate cases connected up switched on and nothing not a murmer, so he took the out tried the tabletop test no problems any body got any ideas please.

i quired the topic about spacers yesterday but he says all fibre spacers have been fitted. I also advised him to recheck all of the connections from the power pack to the board and all other connections from the case to the motherboard which he said he had done 2-3 times (the motherboards are all secondhand and were given to him) seems like a possible cause in itself.
make sure that he hasn't put in any unecessary spacers as these may also be making a connection on the underside of the motherboard. that may explain why when it is put onh the table the board works. only put in spascers where there is a corresponding hole on the motherboard.
