Now it's time for the rebuild of the computer that "died" while I was in Europe in April. I am now wondering if it's the power supply all this time.
Anyway, here goes:
The chassis now has an Abit AN8 mobo and an AMD64 3500 cpu. Everything else is as before and I have (to the best of my knowledge and ability)followed all the connectors for the chassis to the mobo. I reformatted the C drive (SATA #1) and fired it up. For a moment. Lights and a fan did come on but only one of the digital readouts in the POST led lit up. I turned it off as it would not respond to the front pwr switch.
Well, I was having some of these same issues with the previous mobo the AN7 that I pulled. I couldn't turn it off except from the back either though the two led lights for the POST did come on, they didn't count anything.
I am wondering if this is either a faulty powersupply all this time or if I have not correctly set up all the connectors and so on on from the chassis to the mobo. This is a virgin system but has the ATI 9600 graphics card and no others at this time. What do you think? Whaere shall I turn? Thanks
