So i installed everything (i didn't connect the HD and the DVD W to the motherboard, only to the psu. was so tired i completely forgot... i dunno if that will make a difference) Powered it on, by the looks of it, everything comes on (all fans, mb lights up, gfx fan is spinning.) but just sits there on a black screen and does absolutely nothing...
Any ideas at all on what i could do to try and fix this? =(
Make sure the 24 pin power connector is connected properly as well as the 4 pin power connector. If that is true then unplug everything except for cpu, ram and video card (if your mobo has an onboard video card then take out your video card as well). If it posts like that then add components back in one at a time until you find the problem.
lol i actually did that same thing on the first 2 rigs that i built (you think i would learn after just one but no...) started flipping out about how it wasn't working until i looked down and saw that nice little 4pin connector with nothing in it.... just one of those "oh..." situations
