My computer hasn't been booting and so I've stripped my computer down to just the power supply and motherboard (cpu & fan). Found out that when the 4pin CPU power connector is plugged in the computer won't boot (power supply attempts to start and then dies). Without it, it seems to 'work' (ie. cpu fan runs) Any ideas what the issue may be?

Sorry plz move to CPU and Components

imo try plugging your cpu cooler fan into a molex plug and try connecting a different fan where the cpu cooler was. Also, try with just the cpu fan connected to the molex plug.

If it works with nothing plugged in, and doesn't work with the other fan plugged in, I think you could safely say that the mobo may be messed up.

Someone please correct me if I am wrong about this.
