Power supply main MoBo connector looks broken?

All the little holes that plug into the MoBo have those silver things inside except one. It is empty. Do you think this is enough to stop my new setup from booting?

  1. -5v was removed from the ATX spec 9 or 10 years ago, won't keep your system from booting unless it's ancient

  2. If its one of those early super socket 7 or slot-1 motherboards with an AT and ATX power connector then you might have issues powering up or have a wobbly/noisy picture, otherwise it shouldn't be a problem.
  3. Oh dang. When I power up my pc, the back fan moves a little bit, the CPU led turns red for half a second, and I get no image on my monitor. The only way I can reset it is buy actually powering off the power supply.
  4. have you fitted stand-offs between the mobo and the back plane?
  5. I'm really sorry, this is only the second rig I've ever built. What specifically are standoffs? Is the board shouting out or something?
  6. Oh yes I have those on there. I re-checked the MoBo and it doesn't seem to be tightly secured. It moves down a little bit if I push on it lightly. Is this a big problem?

    Hi :)

    Motherboards should NOT move at all...

    All the best Brett :)
  8. have you attached those to the back plane and then screwed the mobo to them? making sure that you only have standoffs under the screw holes on the mobo and no-where else
  9. Yes sir. I'm starting to think its the pins where the power button and system speaker plug in. Ihave to check it out when I get home.
