hmm same here , lemme know if that fixes it ! It says that 20 pin PS should be ok but I guess you never know . Im pretty sure we have the LEDs and stuff hokked up right though , actually got it to boot up a couple times but it seems that one time it will boot then afterwards it wont do anything ... =/ .
I also am using a 20 pin power supply with a 24 pin slot on my mother board

stackage, do you have the manual for your mobo? that will tell you if you have the case jumpers plugged in correctly. if you dont have it, download it from the manufacturers website.
also, what is the wattage of your power supplies? also list brand, if you can find it. its possible your underpowering the system...check the other things first.

this is refering to the atx power input needed for pentium 4 model cpu. this will be located right below the cpu socket. my comp does the same flashy led thing when i flip the power swich in the back, but it wont start up fully untill i press the power button on teh front. see this post...it might address your problem... the psu.
does your mobo have a place to plug in a 4 pin drive power connector

In this case, I was referring to the 4 pin power connector that drives use. from the diagram in that link, it seems these newer 24 pin mobo connectors are used to deliver more juice to the board. im really gonna hafta go read up on that more- but not tonite!
