I'm using an Asus mobo with a P4 cpu.
I don't know if any of these could be the problem:
My mobo uses '24-pin EATXPWR' and '8-pin ATX12V'. However, my PSU provides a 4-pin hook-up instead of an 8-pin. The guide said that the PSU would have to be over 350w to be able to run the mobo on a 4-pin, and my PSU is 500w. Could this be an issue?
I also decided that I didn't want an ugly floppy drive. Is this, in any way, required for a comp to start-up?
The connectors that run from the case don't match the pins on the mobo. Although I had a tough time, I'm pretty sure I have everything plugged in right, and the case manufacturer provides very minimal help on this.
Ok.. that's about all I can think. I know it's difficult to have to tell someone what's wrong without seeing the setup.
Edit: Oh, my PSU is an "Okia". I dunno if that's a good brand. Maybe I just have a crappy psu? I read some reviews and many people had their PSUs blow within a month, and some didn't work on arrival. That wouldn't make sense to me though since my mouse lights up..
