So i had a system built by a local store and have never had a problem with them. So i got a new computer built
8800gts
700 thermaltyke ps
660 intel quadcore
x2 1g ram(don't knoe specifics)
1 dvd burner
320 hd
new case
heat sink
striker extreme MB
etc.

Now i have the power, sound, mouse, keyboard, and monitor connected at the back. I then turn the main power switch on, and instantly get a message on the LCD at the back saying " CPU INIT". When i go to turn it on nothing happens.

Now is this a problem i could fix, or is this something i should let the techies fix.

Take it back to where you bought it from. This can be a sign of a duff processor, though any decent shop wouldn't have sent a PC out in that state, it should have been tested.

Well, i sorta fixed the problem. I tinkered a bit and reset the board and cmos switch. turns out the problem might actually be with the front power switch itself. I will still take it in, but i can turn it on, just have to open the side panel and turn it on with the motherboard....as odd as that sounds
