So we took out the old mobo, installed the new one correctly (we thought) and tried turning it on. It turns on, fans spin, and then it turns off. It tries rebooting continually until I unplug the power.
My initial thought was that there was a power supply problem. My current power supply has a 750w Max, and it worked with my old motherboard. I don't know if it's good or not. I'll give you more specifics on the PS if you guys need.
A friend suggests that since it's a dell case, the wiring may not line up correctly. The "Front Panel" connections are also confusing to me, we're sort of just guessing where to plug them in. We got the front power button to work, and the LED lights turn on.
I'm hoping you guys can steer me in the right direction. Should I just purchase a new case? Am I making a rookie mistake?
I'll take photos and add them to the post when I get back home.
