I just recently got all my parts together and built my pc but i cant get it to turn on for whatever reason
My mobo has the power button light on but no other lights, i tried switching up the RAM slots, reseating the cpu, taking off the video card and sound card. Im trying the mobo on cardboard in a little bit but other than that does anyone have any idea why its not booting?



Build:
intel i5 3570
corsair carbide 400r case
evga geforce 660 FTW
gaz77x-ud3h
WD 1tb harddrive

Is the CPU fan spinning when powering up? What power supply do you use?

Then if the 24 and the 8-pin power connectors are properly inserted, remove the wires corresponding to the case power and reset switches and start the board by shortly connecting together (use a screwdriver) the 2 motherboard pins where the power switch wires go - it's what the case power switch does when pressed.

Make sure you've connected the 8-pin ATX cable and not the 6+2 PCIe cable.

Then it might be a power connector issue. Do you have another power supply?

when i take the motherboard out of the case and press the power button it turns on and powers .Though i have to hold the 24pin connector in at a certain angle so that the power stays on. So does that equal a problem with the case grounding itself or a problem with the psu?

I'd say that it's a problem with the connector or the cable. Either the motherboard or the power supply.
