Problem with Motherboard, no Power to the board, so cannot Boot

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok my Project. All I want this build to do is to watch some movies, listen to some music, and do some Internet surfing, nothing fancy (NO OC).

So these are the components I have bought for this project.

1. ASROCK H77M Motherboard
2. Intel Core i-5 3570K ( I may get a OC board later)
3. G-Skill 2x8gb DDR3-1600
4. Windows 7 (will install 64bits if I can get to that point)
5. PSU Thermelake 700W (bought this awhile ago, but this is the first time I am using it)
6. Video monitor (old but it works, I just use it to mess around with the odd build or install of Windows)

OK my Problem.

1. First I cannot see a button or switch on the board to power the MB.

2. So I have the minimum installed

a. Motherboard
b. CPU + Heatsink/Fan
c. 2 sticks of Memory
d. PSU

Since I cannot find the Power button on this board, I plugged the PSU into the wall and turned it on.


Nothing happened, the Fan and on the CPU did not work, it did not boot.

So am I to conclude that the Motherboard is Not working????

Also an aside, this is the first motherboard that I have worked with that has no power button. Is this because it is low end??


My main question is why I cannot boot and therefore if anyone one can shed any light on this problem, it would be appreciated, otherwise I will RMA this back to Newegg.

Thanks for any help and suggestions

you have to short the pins where the power switch would be connected at the bottom of your board that will turn it on 4 u

OK I can do that, was hoping to do that when I install everything into the case.

Thanks

Front panel connectors are standardized so that should be the right diagram unless that board is special.

No that is good, I normally leave those pins till last, when I am happy that I can post, but since there is no reset button or power button on these cheaper boards I guess that is the route to take. Thx guys
