Hello, I've bought new parts recently and i can't get my motherboard to power. Here are my specs

Thermaltake TR2 430W (PSU)
KingMax DDRII 667Mhz 2GB
Western Digital 80GB HDD
Western Digital 160GB HDD
56k Fax Modem
Geforce 7600GT 256MB GDDR3
Asrock 4CoreDual-SATA2 Motherboard
Intel Dual Core E2180 2.0 ghz 1 MB cache (800fsb)
I've made sure the wiring follows the guidelines written in the manual and I've tried the procedures listed in this forum. Please help!

What motherboard have you bought, what processor have you bought and what do you mean it won't power? It either gets power or it doesn't.

sry I forgot those 2 components

CPU: Intel Dual Core E2180 2.0 Ghz 1 MB cache (800 FSB)
Mobo: Asrock 4-CoreDual-SATA2

No power means not moving. Nothing moves.

This board comes in two revisions, the earlier version doesn't recognise that processor if the BIOS is earlier than a certain revision. The revision 2 board doesn't have this problem.

Perhaps the most obvious solution: Try a new power supply?
