Assistance with odd AMD PC assembly problem...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just got some parts in yesterday, my Mobo for one. I am planning on running a m2r32-mvp. For my CPU I have a 4600. These are both AM2, I am not without knowledge. I put in the CPU/FAN/HS, plugged in the RAM, and plugged in the chassis connections, along with the CPU fan, PSU, (I forgot the PSU fan first time around) all power onto mobo, and an extra side fan. Test time! I plug in.

Well, my UV case fan, lit with internal LEDS, flashes. I can live with a dead fan. My CPU fan doesnt power up, possible temp. threshold? So my question to you is should I commence once again and try to power this up, is the mobo shot, the RAM should be fine. I can always send for a new mobo, for all I know it was DOA. Thanks for any responses.

have you checked all your connections are secure, what PSU are you using?

For starters, what kind of RAM are you using? I have a similar build, with the M2R32-MVP. It's a good board, but if you're using the recommended GeIL Ultra RAM, you'll most likely run into issues. When I first built my system, I was using the GeIL Ultra DDR2-800 RAM, and had to RMA it to GeIL in Cali. Something is buggy in the GeIL Ultra Memory. I agree with the other guys though, try another PSU. Also, please post your system stats on here so we can help a little more.
