Issues with my case swap - Page 3

post #21 of 35
Thread Starter 
well I just hooked up my PSU to my old board. just the main 20 pin atx and the cpu power cable. I figured that would be enough to trigger the green light on the mobo. After turning on the PSU the light didnt come on, so im guessing this means a dead PSU. I just didnt really think it was possible for it to die when it was already working the same day. I think ill try to jump it before I consider buying a new one. I'll have to RMA my mobo anyways because of the bent pins. This is turning into a nightmare .

eh, sometimes it happens too the best of us. but before the rma, try jumping the Green and Black pins on your psu and check the psu. if you get nothing then you got a bad psu. as for the mobo, you might be ok if you got the pin or pins back to normal on the socket. so the mobo might be ok, if you have another psu you can test with, i would double check your mobo before you rma the thing. one thing to remember, take it nice and slow and always put mem and cpu on the mobo before putting it into the case. ive even gone as far as putting on my cpu cooler before putting my mobo in.

also, double check your brass stand-off placement. make sure you dont have one hiding on you. hope we gave you some tips of testing

so should it just come on like it was hooked up when you jump it?

I tried to put the pins back but I just can't get them in the right position and im afraid it would damage my cpu if I put it in there. Now I'm paranoid about whether or not I could have hurt my other parts because of the potentially bad mobo or PSU. Ughh, I thought I knew what I was doing.

should this PSU be good just in case I need another?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005

I'm pretty sure that should handle any single card since I wont do sli or crossfire.

well, I just jumped my PSU and it worked fine. So I guess I'm doing something incredibly wrong with hooking stuff up, I just dont know what. I'll try it again when my RMA comes back. I also noticed something, my case came with a HD audio plugin and 97 audio but no speaker for beeps during the post.

There's no speaker like in the picture.

so where the orange is I have nothing to plug in here. I dont know if thats normal for a cm 690.

dont worry about it, i havent used a speaker any build in the last 5 years. most boards are adopting a LED post code read out now.

but if you want a PC speaker you can pick one up for a couple bucks at any PC/Electronics store

ok cool, so I guess this means the entire time my board was either dead or I had a giant brain fart when connecting everything. I was seriously fretting over all of this but at least I dont need to drop 100 bucks on a PSU.

sounds like you got a DOA board, unfortunately it happens, the main things you need to hook up on the board are the power switch, CPU 4 pin, 20+4 pin main, and the molex +12V if you board has one, the rest is unnecessary for boot

mine had a 8 pin cpu but I just got an extender for it. Ya, I had the main as well. molex +12v? Is it just a normal molex connector? What does it look like?
