ASUS P8Z77-V LK won't start up

I just finished building a new computer, but it won't start. When I press the "power" button on the system panel, literally nothing happens. The green LED is lit, meaning the mobo has power, but it won't do anything. The fans don't turn on either. Please help.

  1. Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums,
    The first thing I would do here is attempt to start the PC by arcing the pwr connectors on the front panel header. That will isolate the front panel from being a possible issue. If that doesn't work, you'll want to go through the steps here in the troubleshooting sticky
    Good luck
  2. lex did you use the mb standoff or screw the mb straight to the inside of the case. also did you connect the 4/8 pin atx power plug that next to the cpu. if not the mb wont post.
  3. I have attempted to short the pins with a screwdriver. No dice. Yes I am using standoffs (I initially tried to boot without them but fixed my mistake) and yes the 8 pin CPU power plug is connected.
  4. do this take out the video card and all ram but one stick and see if the mb power on. if not see if the cpu/video /ram led is on. if it not a short it may be that the cpu not seated right or there a bent or missing pin. i would pull the cpu..check for bent pins under the cpu and then check that the cpu seated. check the back of the mb make sure there not shorts to the mb case or cpu cooler. myself it sounds like you have dead leg in your power supply.i would see first if you have another ps for testing or get that one load tested at micro center or or geek squad.
