I recently built my machine and moved home. Before I moved it was running fine, but ever since i connected it all back up, I'm having strange power up issues.
From the start, if I just turn on the power using the switch on the PSU the CD Crive stats up, the PSU Fan starts up and the lights i have on the case light up. The Hard Drive and monitor do not however.
This only happens once i turn the PC on from the front of the case as you would normally expect.
Why does the machine 'half start' then before I press theon switch at the front??
Hi mosstoe. If you want specific instructions on changing the BIOS settings for your computer, you need to tell us what motherboard you have. However, it seems to me that if the BIOS settings were right before you moved home then it is unlikely that they would change by themselves, however the vibration of the move could well have disturbed a connector or badly soldered component. The fans only need +12V to work, and the power light only needs +5V. It's still quite possible that the +3.3V isn't working and that is the one most of the motherboard uses. The PSU is the easiest thing to try, either borrow one or try a cheap one such as here click here
