this is my first build and it would be great if some one could help me with the wires. this has been a very frustrating build because a friend of mine was suppose to be here to walk me through it, but will not be able to due to some personal issues. i now had all these parts and had to learn some what on my own. i was able to install the cpu heat sink onto the mobo, install the mobo into the case, install the power supply into the case, as well as the ram. i did have some problems with installing the mobo and im HOPING i did everything right.

now i need to get to the wires to make sure everything was installed correctly then move onto the HD/ DVD brn.

any help would be great. im hoping to find some one who has the time and can meet up on AIM and walk me through. thanks.

A good starting point is located HERE
Also you should have gotten a motherboard manual which shows the layout as well as the wiring connections.
Specifically what wires are you trying to hook up right now?

only wires i wanted to connect right now are the power supply wires. i want to make sure the mobo, cpu, power supply, ram, and graphics card is installed correctly. i was told that if everything is installed correctly i should get the bios screen and be able to hear everything run smoothly with a nice hum. if everything works out the way its suppose to then i was going to move on to the HD and DVD brn. once those are installed i will being the software dl.

If you want to be sure of what connections are for what wires go to this page and download the manual if you do not have it already, it will show you where all wires should go.

well i figured it out on my own with a little reading and after getting all the wires connected i started it up and the mobo ran for about two secs then shut off.

i proceeded to do a bench test with only the cpu, gpu, 1 stick of ram, the front panel header connections, the 20/4 pin connection, and the 4 pin 12v atx connector. i started it up and it ran beautifully

whats my next step?

Try the present Ram stick in the 2nd slot you attempted to use, if it boots it suggests that stick and the 2 Ram slots are ok, repeat the process with the 2nd stick of Ram, again on its own, post back with the results.
