Does an ATX-400 power supply unit mean that it is 400w.Can i use a psu with a higher power supply?Will it destroy the mobo?The power supply is working and the motherboard has 1 long beep when the memory cards is removed.This means that the mobo is working, right?The leds are on and the fans are also spinning.Does the mobo look for the fdd,cdrw and hdd before post beeping?
A mistake on my part had my newly upgraded pc act the same way. After much troubleshooting I found that I had an extra MoBo standoff in the case that didn't match up with a mounting hole on the board. Thus shorting out the board on the back - but not all the time. After fixing the problem the pc worked fine. Got lucky - the board was not damaged.
