    try to recconect the cables and press the button on the PSU...

    do you have 1 stick of ram? that might be the issue too... motherboards work in dual channel, so you need 2 sticks of whatever memory

    Your statement about RAM is incorrect. You can run systems on 1 stick of RAM, you don't need 2.

    @tbt3399. Does your PSU fan spin and supply power? Is your system making any sound like a beep?
  4. Is the PSU on and set to the correct voltage? If so, check the components.
  5. im no expert, but I saw experts on this website directlyy state that some motherboards WONT work outright with 1 stick...
  6. @envy14tpe no nothing happens and it doesn't make any sound. I might try disconnecting everything and starting over just to be sure.

    It could be your PSU then. I mean if the PSU fans don't spin then it seems the PSU doesn't work. You could try plugging a fan into the MOLEX connector from PSU and then start the PSU to see if it is supplying any power.
  8. If you solved the problem or found a way to troubleshoot please tell us to help others.
  9. I finally figured it out. I guess I plugged the power switch cables in wrong. Thanks for all the help and the fast response.
  10. and it was the 1st thing I said to you....
