this is my first homebuilt system...
intel core2 quad 2.4G, Q6600
Sparke 9600GT 512MB
2*OCZ 2G 800
WD 500GB 7200 16Mb
Zalman CNPS9500A LED Quiet CPU Cooler
the case: gigabyte isolo 210
i assembled it the right way, but i didn't find pwr fan out of the psu unit..so i ignored it
i booted it once and and it ran smoothly except the cooler fan wasn't working, i installed my Windows vista, made sure all devices installed properly, the rams, the cpu, the vga, just everything...finally, i shut it down happily,,(all the software installation didn't exceed on hour)
later , i tried to boot up but nothing happens ,, i checked everything, opened the case to make sure all cables connected ,the pwr sw connected,, i tried every possible way but nothing works for me ,, i hope the MoBo is not dmaged....
no light no beeps, doesn't matter how may many times i press the power switch on the case, nothing happens...
i meant the cooler of the cpu (Zalman)it wasn't working properly due to me forgetting connecting to sys fan1 plug ...
but i managed this ...
[note: the time the pc was working all leds were O.K]
the power supply fan doesn't turn either,, ...
although the computer as i alredy mentioned earlier worked even though the PSU fan didn't ...
would it be due to the pwr fan on the motherboard left empty since i didn't find any PSU fan cable??
The Power Supply Fan is connected inside the PSU. You dont have to connect it. If the fan isnt working the PSU is defective. Taking it apart will VOID your warranty.
Do you have a DVOM or anything to check voltage with?
