a case problem?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
case problem? so i built a linux box about 7 months ago to run as my file server, i got everything set up fine and it was lovely, i went away for a day for a cross country race to return to find out that my file server wont start. i get a green LED on the motherboard when i turn on the power supply but when i hit the power button i get nothing. i have checked the cables connecting to the case but everything seems fine, what are your thoughts? i seem to be at a loss and i really dont want to transfer everything into a new case. thanks for the help

I had the same problem.

Put the new comp together, but comp wouldnt start, green light on MB was on, but comp wouldnt start.
