Assembling one PC, system won't start.
Posted on 1998-12-29
I'm assembling one PC (PT-2011 ATX mobo. with a 233 Mhz MMX CPU). After carefully configuring and putting everything together, I turned the machine on. The system starts for a few seconds (you can hear the HDD running), then kind of stops (no spinning sound) and the monitor displays "Missing signal". I checked everything again, retried and the same happpened.
Could it be that some parts are defective, like the power supply or the mobo.itself?. I exchanged the mobo., got an identical one, asssembled the parts and did the configuration. Same thing.
One thing I noticed: the case does not have a cable for the keyboard, as the mobo. indicates, to allow the keyboard access the system. Supposedly this cable should be in the bundle of thin cables coming from the front panel.
Could this be part of the problem?.
TIA for any help from the experts, I really need to solve this issue ASAP.
