No power-up on newly built computer.
Posted on 2003-03-28
Just finished putting together my 4th computer, all hardware is new. Problem is unit will not power-up. I think the case connectors (Power LED, HDD LED, PWR SW, RESET SW) are some how on the wrong pins on the motherboard. MB is a PCChips 841LR, micro atx, with a 1.3G Duron, heatsink-fan, etc. The book that came with the MB isn't very explicit, I know that all the connectors are attached to SW1, but the POWER LED coonector is a 3 prong and by the time everything else is where I think it should be according to the schematic, there isn't room left for the connector. I hav scoured the book and the motherboard to see if I have missed something, I've checked all the connections from the PS, but don't find any problems. Yes, I've checked the outlet and the Power cord as well.
Is there any other "hidden" problems I should be aware of? Anyone with any knowledge of this MB - I wouls appreciate the help.
