I just put together a new computer because my old one was outdated.
When I try to start my computer nothing happens. A fan spins for a second then stops. The green light on the mobo is on and stays on and a blue light comes on for the same amount of time the fan turns on.. like half a second.
I think i have everything in the right spot.. but I'm thinking my psu is whats wrong but im not sure..It's only 250 watts but My old computer was working fine with it...
I changed the motherboard to a MSI 790fx-GD70 ( The motherboard I had was a stock mobo from walmart)
The CPU to a 6-core amd ph II black edition ( my old one was a 1.6 dual)
and 8 gigs of Dr3 ram ( my old was 4 gigs of ddr2 ocz)
lmfao... omg You guys are going to think im ******* retarded.. but I didn't put in the standoffs i put in regular screws and i replaced them and it worked fine.. but I forgot to take one extra screw out and my motherboard caught on fire lmfao.. but i unplugged it and took the screw out and it seems to be ok now... a lil singed
