New PC trouble

  [email protected]!nt 16:31 09 Aug 2004

Just fired up my new pc and I have ran into a little trouble. I aint getting nothing. The motherboard has a little LED in ot to show I have power, this is on. Its just when I press the power up button nothing happens. The front panel connectors are connected properly, so I am at a bit of a loss.

Did you build it yourself?

If so, check that you have the power connectors connected to all devices, Motherboard and all drives etc.

Is the fan on top of your processor spinning when you press the power button.

its watercooled.

You could have the wrong connections to the push button on/off switch. Make sure that the internal case wires for speaker, HDD Led, Switch PSU are connected properly. I have myself put these wires
to the wrong block connector term when I used to self build.

ive checked them over, they're fine. according to the manual, its "fool proof"

As with SEASHANTY, also check the reset connection, try it reversed.

Has the water cooled cpu a pump, can you hear it work?

The clear cmos jumper on the mobo is not in the open position, is it.

does the motherboard have the extra power connector for the cpu ...i.e .p4 requires this to work ...
just a thought you have not given us much info on the board /cpu !Dave.
