Changed only case Now will not boot

  Catastrophe 14:59 26 Oct 2006

I have just moved an Intel D865GBF to a much larger case. The power comes on, the m/b light comes on and the power LED comes on. The switch appears to do nothing.

Of course the only difference is in the connections to the case - power, reset, etc. Everything else was simply moved over - the m/b with CPU, memory, etc. all attached.

Looking at the Front Panel Connections the manual gives:

HDactivity LED Power LED
Reset switch On/off switch.

The jumper block is :::::
Two top Three top
Two bottom Two bottom+not connected

so I cannot see any other way to connect.

Any ideas please? Have I missed something by transferring EVERYTHING (except case connections) over from one case to another.

I do not read the block the same way:


top row Power LED/On/Off
bottom row HD LED/Reset/not used.

If I'm right, you have not been switch you r PC on, merely resetting it.

Try rewiring your block according to these instructions.

Sorry - the block should be


with the pins numbered

Check that none of the cards have come loose or the backs of them lifted when moving into the new case, Lift the RAM out and reseat it. Try booting again.

Check for contact between motherboard and case.

I thought that at first but HDLED 13 is OK
PowerLED 24 does not work as 2 wires in 3 slots (green space white) Reset 579 will not work as Reset is 2 wires in 2 slots leaving
Power 68 (10 not connected).

Am I getting something wrong here?

M/B screws go directly into case but have washer on screw above M/B. Is this not right? I just moved as from previous case which had no risers either.

Thanks for suggestion. Will try after sorting jumper block issue. :)

I have removed only card and checked RAM so this will be included in next attempt.

The nearest I can get is swapping Power LED and Power SW.

PowerLED has White gap Green
PowerSW has Brown White

Just in case there is any confusion I could not get your link. I am workimg from M/B PDF Manual but I think the block is the same in each case.
