Hey guys, I just got the last piece to my home server tonight and put it all together to install Windows Home Server on it. When I boot it up, all of the fans turn on, but I get no video output (tested with DVI and HDMI to TV and monitor), and I don't get the normal single beep. I don't remember where the "no boot up" help links are, and I'm busy so I don't really have the time to find them and troubleshoot at the moment.
One thing to note is that the motherboard has an 8pin CPU socket, but my PSU only has a 4pin CPU plug. I put it in the 8pin socket on the right side where the plugs matched up.
I know the PSU is pretty crappy, but it is literally all I can afford at the moment, so if it turns out I need new hardware I have to wait at least a month. If the PSU is good, it definitely supplies enough power for the system.
So I re-ran the system with the P4 I got and the system still fails to boot up, so I'm 99% sure it's the motherboard. While inspecting it, I found that 2 capacitors were lacking their covers, resulting in the photos I linked. However, I don't think they're blown; no black marks, signs of damage, or anything really. I plan on buying a new mobo soon, since the motherboard seems to be a problem regardless of whether or not these capacitors are the problem.
