Hey guys i be tried searching around the forum and I still cannot find a solution. I have recently finished building my computer and theres a blue LED light in the front of the power button but none of the fans (PSU,CPU and case) are working. What can be wrong? I took a PSU out of brothers working computer and put it in and its still the same thing. So it can't be a PSU problem. The specs on my computer are Intel i5, AsRock h61m-dgs motherboard and thermaltake tr2 500w PSU. The blue LED turns on as soon as I switch the PSU on. When i click the power button the computer doesnt work at all only the light.

if the i5 is an ivy bridge cpu then your mb wont post till there a bios update on the mb is placed. look for the bios rev sticker on the mb or mb box. then look under the mb cpu guild. see if your mb has the ib bios flash already. if not you have to find a sandy bridge cpu or have a computer store or the vendor flash the bios for you or replace it whith a x7x chipset mb.

Best solution

Did you connect the headers for the front panel of the computer into the right places? I would double check with the manual, it sounds like you might have put them in the wrong spot where the power button cant send the signal to the motherboard to start the computer.

btw, Snorizio is most likely right.

1 - Is there any beeps when you start up the computer ?

2 - Is there a speaker plugged on the motherboard ?

If we could know which kind of beep is produced that would help to know what's the problem.

Also, what is your motherboard ?

he has a AsRock h61m-dgs that supports a 3570k right out of the box. So a bios update shouldn't be the issue
