Thread: Is my motherboard DOA?

  1. #1
    I just got a brand new mobo and cpu. I hooked it up and it wont turn on.

    I cleared the CMOS, tried every combonition for the plugs that go in the front of the case and nothing works. I tried it in an old case I have and it also would not boot. The power supply is fine, I was just using my other mobo and cpu right before I upgraded

    Got any ideas?

    Absolutely nothing happeneds. Everything (to my knowledge) is hooked up properly. Got the ATX1 and PJ1 cables hooked up to the mobo from the PSU. Just doesnt make sense

    Do you have the secondary 4-Pin ATX Power connector plugged into the motherboard?
    Do you have a fan connected to the CPU fan connector?
    A momentary connection to pins #6 and 8 of the SW1 should power up the board.

    Yes

    EDIT: I think im gonna go postal

    Yes the PJ1.
    Ok
    Carefully connect them together momentarily (pins 6 and 8) with a small screwdriver or anything that will complete the circuit. (remember, it's only momentary).
