Need help turning PC on.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Not sure which forum category this should be in but uh heres my problem.

I have an ASRock H81M-ITX with G3258 and stock cooler. I have built PC's before so I know what Im doing. But anyways I installed everything correctly. CPU, Power for
motherboard, power for Cpu, fan for cpu. stock cpu cooler, ram and a hdd. I am using a 430w evga psu. I do not have a case, so I am trying to short the
pwr pins on the motherboard and nothing happens.
I am wondering if I received a dead/faulty motherboard or psu? How would I know which one it is? The motherboard did not come with a motherboard speaker to hear any beeps. Any
suggestions advice?

tldr; Shorting pwr pins on mobo, nothing turns on. the cpu stock fan does not spin. the psu fan does not spin when turned on (is it suppose to automatically?)

This is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/redikira/saved/#view=XJ8kcf

Are there any lights on the mobo? I know that both of my PCs have lights on the motherboard which light up when there is power going to the board, even when the PC is off.

I would take out the RAM and Video Card and see if I could get it to post without them. If something turns out to be faulty, I would say power supply is your likely first culprit, followed by the motherboard.

Good luck.

Ensure that you're shorting the correct pins on the motherboard and ensure that what you're using to short the pins is sufficiently conductive. Make sure power supply itself is switched on (easy step to forget).wink.gif

No Lights on mobo. Power switch is on (O / I) I've looked at the manual for the motherboard and tried shorting the 2 pins with different multiple screwdrivers, flatheads, keys. Nothing happens.

I bought the PSU on amazon brand new, why wouldn't it work?
The mobo was from newegg manufactured refurbished.

Odd...you should see something. Check all the pins in the ATX connector to ensure that there all snugly locked in the connector. If all else fails, unplug the connector and short the start pin on the connector itself to ground (pins 15 and 16)...if there's no reaction, the power supply is dead.

I asked amazon to replace the psu. Should be here in 2 days. If it doesn't work then it has to be the motherboard...or maybe even something else. ffs

Anyone know if the EVGA 430w fan should turn on automatically, or does it just turn on when it needs to?

Well i get the same thing with either power supply. Wth is my issue?

I dont have a case and dont have paper clips to jump start the psu. I dont suspect the power supply.

Well thats all I can think of ( including foolish mistakes) 

*Double check if all cables are connected correctly even if you are sure you did everything right.

* Make sure that motherboard is on safe anti static surface

*Check the mobo box to see with what bios version it comes since your CPU is supported starting by  P1.70 bios version.

*Dead mobo after all.

 

Had simmilar issue back with lga 2011 motherboard from assus.Mobo refused to show any sign of life cuz of CPU.

 

Also my apoligies for my english as usual  :)

 

Hope you get your PC back to the life.

The PSU you have is pretty much terible and no it does not have any kind of hybrid fan mode so if the fans does not spin its broken.
Why you should not buy an EVGA 400-600 and 500B-600B

You can test the PSU.
http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-power-up-an-ATX-Power-Supply-without-a-PC/

Also, you could try using another PSU, if you have one laying around, or one that is in a functioning computer. It could be a bad Mainboard, I've had one or two in my day. Good luck to 'ye!
