AMD 2800XP and Abit NF7-S2G Mobo. Wont POWER ON ?
Posted on 2004-11-29
Ok, i just purchased a combo deal.. for a AMD 2800XP and Abit NF7-S2G motherboard, and have a new Power supply with built in LED (for case mod theme) . I have everything hooked up, Ram is in, CPU is in 20pin Connector Plugged in, and the 4 Pin Power connector plugged on the mobo aswell. I have shorted the CCMOS jumper for at least 2-3minutes. then placed the jumpers on the normal default pins again. all the power/switches/hd.leds cables are all hooked up on the mobo. Now with all this done, i go to press the power button and no luck :( mobo just wont power up. i double checked power connectors and everything is fitted perfectly, but still no power.. The PSU i am using the blue LED lights come on when the 20 Pin connector is hooked on the mobo, but when its not connected i noticed the LED doesnt come on.. so i am guessing that means the connectors are connected fine. The mobo also has 2 LED's built on it, one for when there is power supplied to the mobo itself, and the other when system is powered on.. Well None of the LED's are on.. so i am guessing there no power being distributed to the mobo since neither LED's are on. Any suggestions anyone ? Many thanks in Advance.
P.S. i have given this question 500 points, because i need this PC done by wednesday, and i have been trying all day today and still no luck and i have school tommorow so dont have that much time.. thanks
