the mobo has 2 power connectors. the long 24pin ATX connector and a smaller 4pin one typically very close to the processor socket.
I recently purchased the following parts:
ECS NFORCE 570 SLIT-A
INTEL CORE 2 DUO 4300
EVGA E-GEFORCE 7600GT
2GB OCZ DDR2-800 RAM
SAMSUNG IDE DVDRW
XION CASE WITH 450W PS.
to build my 200th or so PC. I got everything assembled and when I push the power switch, it lights up...the fans begin whirring, the hard drive starts spinning, and nothing.
No beeps, no monitor, nothing.
I have disconnected everyting and tried reconnecting each item to find an error but no luck.
Any ideas? Could it be the 800 Mhz FSB of the Core 2 Duo 4300 Processor is incompatible with the 1066 Mhz FSB of the motherboard? I tried DDR2 - 667 Memor...some thing, so I don't think it is a memory issue.
The only other thing I noticed was that the USB keyboard remains lit after shutdown.If I disconnect power, it takes about 30 second before the USB KB light goe out.Is this a short?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.
