->Also have a Asus Radeon hd 7550 which i have taken out just to see if it had effect on my power.
The PC will not turn on. It gets power for a split second makes a noise like something in there is trying to draw power, the power LED display flashes for a second... but nothing, no power.
The exhaust fan on the case does not match what I have on the motherboard, I did not intend to run the computer for any amount of time, and will have the adapter tomorrow, is this the issue? Or have I done something wrong? As far as I can tell everything is in place and connected properly.
i know this sounds silly but are you sure you plugged in your main power to your mobo? i had the same problem when i built mine i did't have all the power cords pluged in might want to try that good luck!
Yes, the LED flashes for a second as if it were getting power then it shuts off, as advised as another forum I am about to run off a motherboard, GPU, and one stick of ram to see if i have a defective part.
did you also plug the 4 pins atx from the psu to the motherboard see the cpu fan is also plug in then check if both the 24 and 4 pins are well seated on the board connector and not loose,for the fan in the back you could use the 3 pins system fans at the bottom of the left side on board.this card got also onboard video chipset so you could connect monitor to and test without the hd 7550 for boot
