of the build. Did you assemble everything icluding floppy, hard drives and CD drives? If so, yjat is simply the incorrect way. The first assembley should be just enough to see if the power upply turns on anbd stays on.
Disconnect all drives remove all cards wxcept video. One stick of memory, CPU/HSF. Twould be good to have a swpeaker to listen for beeps which provide fault information. Why don't you have one??
With no mouse, no keyboard, PS connected to mobo[both connectors if you also have the 4 pin 12 volts for the CPU]. Hit the power sitch, what happens???
Let's figure out what the Power LED that you are referring to, is it the one on the front panel OR the one on the mobo??? The one on the mobo is frequently the indicator that the 5 volt standby power is present on the mobo.
I just put together a PC and the thing will not Boot. I have refered to the ASUS manual and several PC guides(since yesterday I've been on this) and the connectors and wires are properly placed. The only wire that is not connected is the 4pin 'Speaker' panel connector which I am not seeing; there is no AUD, SP, SPK, connector in the case. This doesn't seem to be the problem though.
When I press the I/O:
- The PSU and/or CPU makes a power on sound
- The PSU fan does not move,
- The POWER LED light is lit,
- The CPU fan moves for one second then stops,
- There is no sound coming from the HardDrive
- The Monitor is black and no image displays
This leads me to believe there is power coming from the PSU but there is just something wrong. I have tried both PSUs I own (400/500W) and I get the same result. I had the CPU installed onto the Mobo by a technician at the store and I verified it today and it's properly installed.
I really need some help and hope I can save 50$ for installation/inspection fees thanks for any advice and help in advance.
