Gigabyte Mobo Dead.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So its my birthday, Why the hell not get a new pc. I have had my old one for at lest 3 years. I got this new gigabyte ga-k8n-pro-sli. I set everything up, I dont know why I dont get any power to the board. I just got a new 500wtpower thing. I just dont know why? No power to the board.

Just a few stupid questions, sorry if they sound dumb but, is the switch on the psu turned on? Is it set to 110 on the psu? Is the psu native 20 pin and if it is are you using a adapter? Does the fans on the psu come on at all? These questions should help with diagnosing your problem.

Disconnect everything inside the computer from the power supply, unplug the unit, use a small piece of wire on the 20 or 24pin connector and connect the green to any black, then plug it in, if the fan comes on then it works, if it doesn't come on try switching the switch on the back of the PSU, if the green wire is grounding then the PSU will turn on. (Do this at your own risk, I do it all the time to test PSU's.)

Or try using another PSU to hook up to the gigabyte. If the motherboard doesnt work with another PSU then the board may be dead or not hooked up correctly or could be a number of problems with the components on the board.
