Check the frt. power-ON cable is correct. Also, make sure no shorted standoffs are present behind the mtrbd. You will need to remove to be 100% sure, don't take anything for granted. Try reducing all devices to make just a minmium system, only FD, video and memory is presnt with power and then try to power-UP. Recheck ll your work.

My brand new computer I just bought all the pieces for and put together won't turn on. I have...
PC Chips Tidal Wave T12 Motherboard
Pentium 4 3 Ghz Prescott w/ HT
1 GB RAM
120 GB SATA hard drive
16X DVD-RW drive
128MB Geforce4 video card
400W power supply
I've connected and adjusted all the jumpers to what I am quite sure is the correct setting, I have a led on the motherboard that lights up when I plug in for power, but when I actually push the power buttion, the lights on my fans blink for a second and nothing happens. I figure I either don't have the power button jumpers set incorrectly, or there is something wrong with my power button, but was wondering if if could be something else as well. Any help would be appreciated.
