Hello,


I'm having some troubles with my new PC that I have basically custom built besides
the hard drive ,CPU and disk drive. But anyways I've installed the new MoBo and power
supply in our new case and I plug in my PC and I try to press the power button and it
will not do anything, then about 10-15 sec later the pc will just turn on and do nothing.
No screen comes up on the monitor or anything! The fans run in the PC and thats it.
Everything I double checked and is all properly installed and plugged in. I'm out of ideas
and need some help.


Much appreciated ,


Snippy

Could you give me a link to your PSU? Sounds like it can't provide enough juice.

Hey,


I've just bought this brand new 550W PSU , http://www.tigerdire...e...&CatId=1079

And i'm also having new troubles with my current PC, When I go in-game my frames are terrible , and then I check my CPU usage and its
@ 100%. I think I'm going to call and get that replaced with a new one since I have a 3year warrenty.

did you check to make sure all the proper pins are plugged into the motherboarod with the 20+ and 4+ power pins and any other needed power ports on your mobo? It seems like your builting a machine that will be demanding some power but 550W should be sufficiant

Do you have onboard video? If so try that. If not could you find a friend that'll let you try his to rule out the graphics card.
Do you have another PCI-E slot if so switch it to see if the slot went bad. I'm thinking your card might be bad....
Do you have a spare monitor that you could test to rule out the monitor.
That PSU should have sufficient power.

The monitor is good and the card is also good, I believe it's a defective
mother Board thats causing my problems.

it very well could be as your other trials have not produced a problem yet. i would contact the motherboard company and ask for a replacement or an RMA to the company where you purchased the product.
