Hello everybody. I'm a new user on this website. I'm helping my friend build a PC, but we are having trouble with the power on. We have already looked at the sticky thread, took everything apart, and put them back together. No damage. Stand offs in right spot. Right pins where they should be. Compatibility checked online. Nothing has changed.

When we plug in the PSU in a 115v Socket (US), flip the switch in the rear, and push-in the power button on the front bus, we get a short blue led light blink, and nothing else. No beeps, no other noises, nothing. like I said previously, we explored the stickied thread about this, and followed the advice, but to no avail.

The computer components are as listed:

CPU: AMD A10 6790K Quad-Core Processor @ 4.0GHz base
MoBo: ASROCK FM2A88X Extreme 4+
Memory: G.Skill RipjawsX 4gb x 2 sticks DDR3-1600 F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
GPU: integrated
Sound Card: integrated
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 600W
SSD: Kingston HyperX 120gb
HDD: WD Blue 1tb
Case: Rosewill Line
Wireless PCI Card: Rosewill RNX-N300X
OS: Windows 7 Home 64 (for when we actually get the computer turned on)

It has been about 10 years since I've built a computer, and my friend has 0 years of experience. We are also without tools to check the voltage, so we're not sure if we have a bad component as well. It's not looking so hot. Any advice will be helpful to us.

Thank you!

Can you get you hands on another PSU to try? Have you taken the guts out and trouble shot on a bench? Have a guide that might help here:

A bench? I'm sorry. I'm really new to this. I'll give the link a try.
We don't have another PSU to try out unfortunately. Most our friends have Macs or laptops. I'm going to call him to disconnect it from everything and see if it gets power without being connected to other components. Just a shot in the dark.

Thank you!
