Does the computer come on at all? And if it does, what beeps do you hear inf any?
By the sounds of it you may need to remove the CMOS battery, discharge the capacitors (unplug the PSU and hold the power button in for 10 seconds). Keep the battery out for 24 hours and then try again.
Hi Viper, thanks for info. just a bit more for you. When i bought the mainboard, ram cpu and cooler, and hdd, the guy in the shop assembled the cpu and cooler, and ram into the mb, the then connected it with an old graphic card he had in his shop and ran it up, it got to the mobo setup page. all he did then was unplug his stuff and left me with the partially assemble mb. I have now completed the build, although a couple of months after he had done the test. Would the cmos battery lose all its power in this time/ should i get a new one and replace it?
There are no beeps when i start it. the cpu and graphic card cooling fans run but nothing else seems to happen.
