Hello there,

I have recently built myself a new PC. i am running a AMD Athlon XP2800+ on an Asus A7V8X-X motherboard. i have pieced this together in side Mercury Midi tower 400 ATX DSV.

All of the components were conected to the book, all i's dotted all t's crossed. i insert the power cable and flick the switch. when i press the power button. NOTHING happens.

I dont know what to do. please help

Whenever I'm building a computer it's always something stupid that makes that happen. I.E. The processor not being locked in, a power pin touching exposed metal, not flicking the switch on the power supply, a jumper in the wrong place... static electricity... you probably will want to re-dot, and re-cross your t's, then decide if it's a user error or a mfr error.

Hi,
Just had the very same thing happen to me.

Hate to say it but if all the i's are dotted and your t's are crossed, take the orginal power supply out and replace it with a new one or one that is compatible and see it that fixes the problem. Just because it's new does not mean it can't be bad.

I learned the hard way. I just finished building my new computer and put in a dynamic video/game board. Evidently, my orginal power supply (350 Watts) was not good enough and the moment I turned it on...... :tazz: it fried!...

My only indication was a "VERY" quick blink of light, a puff of ozone and that puppy was gone....

Hope that helps.
