FIRST START PROBLEM! (Mod's feel free to move, not sure where to put)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok. I have just put together a new rig with:

AMD Sempron 140 Processor
Biostar N68S3+ Mobo
Diablotek 400w PSU
Crucial 1GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM

Problem:

I properly installed cpu, heatsink, ram mobo, psu, all in case. Secured RAM into slot 1; Tightly plugged in 4pin PSU and 24pin PSU connectors, clipped AM3 CPU into socket w/ arrows lined up, snapped in heatsink, connected Monitor, Keyboard, Power, switched PSU on, and plugged in all fans.

After pressing power button on case once, heatsink fan and other fans spin once, then stop. Also a high-pitched ring can be heard from PSU when power is running through it. No bleeps, no POST, no lights, just *spin* ... and silence.

Any Ideas? ALL parts are in a protection plan, and under warranty. I can easily obtain any replacement, just in case.

Thanks

Sounds like a PSU issue. Do you have another system you can test it in or another PSU to test the system? Try one of the two and get back to us

high pitched ring from the PSU? that doesnt sound good. Unplug all of the psu cables except the fans. Then jump the green wire with any black wire on the 24-pin motherboard connector. Plug the PSU into the wall outlet and switch it on. This will tell you if the PSU works.


report back afterwards.

Yup, you guys we're right.

Put in my spare PSU, and it worked!

I'll just exchange it tommorow, thanks!

xd hit the nail on the head. D-I-A-B-L-O-T-E-K power supplies do just that....BLOW! Sometimes, they even Blow-Up!

While you're at it for the replacement, get a second 1GB DIMM of RAM
dual channel = big benefit
