I just bought myself a new computer and just set it up. I set up everything according to the instructions but it will not power up when i press the power on switch. However, the lights around the LAN ports flash and the motherboard LED turns on when I turn on the power supply. Can the processor be dead or the RAM?

If you bought it somewhere call them or take it back. If you built it yourself check the connection to the power switch.

Is this a completed system you purchased or a new build? I am confused by your description. I any case, the items to review are similar.

Good news - the THG forum has a stickee to use when you have new system boot issues:

Bad news - you did not reaid it before posting.

Even if a new system you purchased rather than built, it might be something as simple as a wire coming loose during shipment.

Quite likely. The motherboard LED that you see (along with the ethernet circuits) is powered by a small independent section of the PSU called the standby power supply. This always on output is labeled "5VSB" on the PSU label. It has nothing to do with the main PSU outputs that actually power the computer.

The PSU could be bad. What brand?
