Hey everyone, i really need some help, I have essentially built a new PC and with my old mobo, CPU and RAM it was working fine, i have changed those components and it is no longer working, when i turn on the PSU i get a green light on the mobo so im assuming thats not where the issue lies.
i suspect i havent connected the power button to the mobo properly, in the picture the black and white twisted cable is the one that goes to the "on" button.
also i get no beeps or anything thats suggests an error, is there anyway to boot the PC without that button?
Make sure your connecting the case power button to the correct 2 pins on the MB, check your manual.
Is the motherboard currently installed in the case? If so it seems you are missing a motherboard standoff / screw based on that picture. Make sure there is no additional motherboard standoffs touching the underside of the board, or anything else.
im using an asus m5 a97 pro, i used to have a much smaller mother board and therefore do not have enough standoff screws, however i will change them about so its more stable, will check the manual now.
I personally wouldn't use it without the right amount of stand offs, but thats just me.
Your "on" switch power button needs to go to the correct 2 pins, I downloaded your MB's manual and based on the picture you put them on the wrong two. Plug the power switch to the PWRSW (Pwr / Ground) Page 2-24 in your MB manual.
