ASRock H61M-HVS Not booting up.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
As the title infers, my H61M-HVS is not turning on. I have, to the best of my ability, installed and connected everything but nothing turns on except for the PWR LED.

No fans spin.
No beeps.
Nothing.

Any suggestions?

I've tried with 2 different modules of RAM, neither of which worked.

Every time an issue like this arises and nothing seems to work, it's recommended to try and run everything outside the case. the PSU and drives can stay, but the motherboard should come out. This eliminates the possibility of any shorts.

If the case power switch connector doesn't reach, you can still turn it on by momentarily shorting the power pins on the motherboard (where the cable was connected). I use a metal tipped pen.

I know it sounds silly, but you'd be surprised how many times it has worked. For myself, and many on here as well.

If that doesn't work, I'd re-seat the processor and heatsink, as well as re-plug all the cables. Make sure that the 4-pin/8-pin power cable is plugged into the motherboard as well.

Also, see if you can try a different power supply. That would be my first guess if we were to rule out components.

Good luck, and be back in the morning.

I'm beginning to think I've either busted something in the installation, or one of the components was DOA. The CPU fan doesn't spin, the PSU fan doesn't spin, I've reseated the CPU and heatsink 5 times and yet still, nothing. Both the 20+4 and the 4pin power cables are plugged in and have been checked and double checked thoroughly.

The Power LED on the front turns on when I press the power button or short the power switch pins, does that mean that the PSU isn't faulty or could it still be faulty and only operating at x% capacity?

EDIT

Just tried a Corsair PSU - the computer powered on and the CPU fan started spinning but there was an awful smell that could possibly be associated with burning. So I turned it straight off again.

Wow, that's really odd. Where was the smell coming from?

If it powered on with the Corsair, then it's likely that the other one just wasn't working. Even if the power LED did come on. But that burning smell is definitely nothing good.

Is it possible that is was coming from the old PSU after you unplugged it? If it was, do not try to open it up, as PSU's hold a charge, even when the're not plugged it, and it can be very dangerous.

Again, best of luck Tom!
