Hi there. Newbie here. Last month, I have upgraded my old computer with so many various upgrades including a new motherboard ( Asus M4A87TD ) and AMD 965 as the main components. Everything was working fine and the computer was operating problem free for the past month.
This morning, I decided to upgrade the PSU and case. In addition, I also added an aftermarket coolerAfter carefully transferring the components from the old computer into the new case and plugging up the new PSU, BAM ! NO POWER. No beeps and no green idle light, nothing. I've checked every connection and everything appears to be in order. I then decided to test the PSU and it did power the fan.
What should my next step be? Is there a way to properly test the motherboard? What other tests should I perform?
I've spent so much on this build already and buying something that might not be the problem ( such as the motherboard ) could really set me back since the board was new just a month ago.
Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
