[Help] FoxConn A7GM-S

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Posted earlier but wanted to elaborate a little more..

Just got in my order from Newegg. When I installed the mobo in my case and plugged in my PSU (thermaltake 430) no light turns on the board, only the CPU fan spins for a second occasionally. I unistalled everything but the cpu/heatsink/fan and took the mobo out of the case, laid it on the static bag it came in and plugged the 24 pin and cpu power in, same result. I plugged the 20 pin (psu has 20+4 connector) to a different mobo I have and the light on that mobo came on fine. I really don't want to have to RMA since I have been waiting 3 months to get this comp up and running. Does anyone have any ideas? I have cleared the CMOS, took out the battery and put it back in, used a different battery, and no luck.

Sounds like a dead board to me... you eliminated everything but the CPU and MOBO... try reseating the CPU and see if that helps.
