Just put my new system together last night and after all that work I hit the power button and you see my monitors no signal screen go off for a split second and come right back on. It won't beep so I'm guessing its not even making it to the POST. I pulled everything off of the board to try to just get the thing to beep but nothing helped. There is a 4 pin ATX 12V connection on the motherboard by the keyboard connection that the motherboard says has to be connected or the system won't boot but my power supply don't have no 4 pin connector that goes there, I have the Enermax Liberty 500W it has a 24 pin main connector. Thanks in advance.

Hello CTroxtell22 and welcome to G2G!

You've found out the problem for yourself, you need to 4 pin connector.
Buy a new power supply or buy an adapter.

Found out what it was, the Enermax Liberty power supply has 4 pin connector but as you can see in this picture http://enermaxusa.co...erty_cables.jpg the 12v connection can also be 8 pins so you have to squeeze the tabs and the 8 pin becomes 2 4 pins.
