Build Problem

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Okay, just built my first PC a q6600, 9800GX2, 4GB ram, 780i mobo, Antec 850w psu, all in a TT Armor case. Just put in the power plug and the mobo is getting power, it's lit up but the pc won't turn on. The power button does nothing.

Any suggestions? Can you tell me if we didn't plug something in right?

In all probability you have the motherboard "front panel header" misrouted somehow. If nothing else works try connecting the "power switch" header to the "reset switch" line and vice versa. I still have my sig rig wired that way.

No luck there, the front panel switches being changed does nothing. In fact the mobo lights don't come on then.

Well you may have to pull it out of the case.

Not to familier with nvidia boards but.....

Try with only one stick of ram,
Reseat your ram and CPU
Ensure your vidcard is plugged in
Ensure any mobo power connections are plugged in
Replug in your 24/8 pin power cords

Clear cmos and try it again.

Took one stick of ram out -> nothing
Reseat ram -> nothing
reseat CPU -> Don't want to try right now.
Mobo power connections -> Not all of them are plugged in anyways, not using firewire, or speaker, do all of them need to be plugged in? It seems like there's a couple extra cables.
Replug in 24/8 pin cords -> Nothing

Before we were getting a blue light and then a yellow light when the power button was switched and the gfx card flashed green briefly, but the pc didn't completely turn on. None of the fans come on or anything. Now we get no lights at all after trying this.

Haven't taken the CPU out because trying to remove the Tuniq Tower is ridiculous. The blue light is gone now, we're getting nothing now...

did you plug a 4pin power connector to the board? My 680i has one near the ram. I had a similar problem until I plugged that one in
