Pentium 4 installation
Posted on 2001-08-11
I have recently purchased an Intel Pentium 4, 1.3 GB processor and an Intel D850GB motherboard. After the installation, I couldn't get it to power up. After studying the Quick Start guide provided by Intel, I realized my case had the wrong power supply. I purchased a Pentium 4 power supply which features a 12V power connector for the processor and an auxilliary power connector which is also required for the P-4 (these are in addition to the standard ATX power connector). Well it still won't power up. I do have power to an additional fan for the case but the processor heat sink fan won't run and there is no power to the CD-ROM drive. I may have ruined by board by starting the thing up with the original power supply. Any ideas???
