after receiving advice from various people, i purchased a mobo, cpu and ram package, consisting of a AMD 64 4200 X2 processor, ECS geforce 6100-SM-M2 motherboard, and 1GB DDR2 667MHz memory. due to issues with money, i decided i would try to fit it myself. i have a 400watt psu, 80gb hdd, dvdrw drive an a 128mb graphics card. i believe i have connected everything up correctly, but when i switch on, all i get is a flicker of life, and then nothing. does anyone know what i am doing wrong? thanks
ive tried that, but i got confused with the front panel connections.....which colours are neg and pos? are all the whites neg, and the colurs pos? someone has said i might have blown my psu cos it aint powerful enough?
my power is in the right pins because it is the only place where i get any life. do i need all pins in for it to power up? the burst of power happens every time i try and switch on, so i know it hasnt blow the fuse in the psu. do you think the psu is not powerful enough? or could it be the mobo?
