... it wouldn't start. Yes, yes, all enjoy a good chuckle for a moment and then maybe some of you can point me in the right direction.
So I bought a case with a 400 power supply some motherboard by the name of pt800ce-a, P4 processor, and I am stealing all the other components from my old pc.
I installed the board, cpu, fan, pluged everything in to the best of my ability, and went to turn it on and nothing. Not a whir or a spin or any thing, it was as if the case was not plugged in but yet it was.
I think one of my problems may be that the power switch button from the front of the PC may not be connected properly.
Is there any highrez pictures of what cables from the from of your case and how they get plugged in to those little pins available anywhere?
If I didn't change one jumper on my mother board would that affect anything?
What are the most common reasons for a freshly built pc not to power up?
Is there a way to check to see if the case is even transfering power? Shouldn't the fan on the powersupply come on automaticly regardless if your pc is functional or not?
Thanks for any help or suggestions.
