Cant get HTPC to power up.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So as ive been upgrading my gaming rig, ive been putting all the leftover components into a box that has been slowly coalescing into an HTPC, but for some reason it wont power up, and i cant figure it out...

The light on the power button illuminates, but when i press it... nothing. ive checked the ram, video card, and power supply, and the board and CPU were in perfect working order when i pulled them out of my main rig, so im a bit baffled as to why the damn thing wont boot.

Thoughts?

I had the same thing. Clearing the CMOS fixed it for me.

Unfortunately clearing the CMOS didnt do anything, ordering a replacement CPU, and hoping that is the culprit, since board clearly receives power(front panel lights up and USB devices receive power)

Not complete but here's what I would do:

1. Unseat the ram and put it in again
2. Isolate ram (if there are multiple sticks) and see if it will work with less ram
3. Make sure PSU is good
4. Make sure processor is seated correctly
5. Check processor pins and see if any are bent
6. Make sure all cables are connected

Good luck bro.
