ughh... new build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
so, i got everything together, wires are all twist tied down, and no response on the first power button click. i checked everything i possibly could have, the power supply doesnt have a european voltage changer, the power button is all plugged in, there are no motherboard power connectors to plug in...

one thing i notice though, is when i plug the power supply in, it sort of makes something click lightly inside the case. the kind of clicking that a case fan would drown out, im lucky i heard it... and when i unplug the psu the clicking slows and then stops... what in the world?

i could start testing and stuff, but everything is tied in there with twist ties, unless you guys know what this clicking is, thats what im gonna have to do...

im thinking its either the power supply or the motherboard though, since there just isn't a signal at all, no fans turn on, nothing.
could be the power switch though, ill have to test to isolate the problem... but i havent got another motherboard to test with

Bring you PSU to a computer shop and have it tested.

Also there should be some kind of LED lights on the motherboard to verify that it is hooked to the power supply but not powered on. If you have nothing, then I would suspect the power supply. I just hope that you did not fry anything.

Hope this helps

Of the dozens of builds that I have done, only 1 of them worked on the first try. Just go back and check everything. Most likely it is just something silly you forgot.

That is a bummer.

Yeah, check everything first, one by one. If your MoBo is equipped w/ a power light, check it (no offense).

If you know how, you could unplug everything (I do mean everything) and "jump" the PSU and test it yourself using a multi-meter or hook up a molex-fan connector and see if it will at least power the fan. This would at least save you the trouble of having to undo all your wiring until you know that it is the PSU.

If all else fails, you may have to dismantle and take it in for testing.

...sorry, but I got to say it: Next time do a power run prior to finishing your install. Once all is proper (maybe even thru the burn-in) then power down, unplug and finish the install.
