[Edit: I see you fixed your problem, WOOT. You still need to verify you have that 8-pin plugged in though, without it you might overload the 24-pin ATX connector, and blow up the MB!]

Most computers wont even post without the CPU power(EPS 12V) plugged in.
Talking about a cracked(meaning probably pirated) copy of windows is still against the TOS if memory serves.
So lets drop the issue.

I made sure I connected that 8 pin, I don't think it will even boot without it. biggrin.gif

fair enough, I can accept that. I can see where your coming from when you explain it in this way.

The CPU is by far the largest consumer of power from that 8-pin EPS port, but I think some boards also use it to augment PCie bus power. Important part is, if you have a 8-pin socket on your motherboard, you need to have something plugged into it. =)
