Going crazy...please help.
I built my new computer last night, however it won't start. There is power to the motherboard, because I can hear and see the fans when I turn it on, it also beeps when I pull the graphics card so I think the board posted OK, however the Heatsink fan doesn't move. It initially spins a rotation or two and that is it. It does the same thing when I power it off, just a initial spin or two and then it stops. Any ideas...I would be so grateful.

Here are my system specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
Rosewill RP550-2 ATX12V v2.01 550W Power Supply
4stick of - G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
APEVIA X-JUPITER-JR G-Type X-JPJGT-BK Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Thanks so much for your help!!! It's been a while since I've built a system..so frustrated!

Take it apart...start anew.

Last night may not have been the best time for assembling a computer properly :thumbsup:. Not much to lose at this point...by backtracking.


Don't know if this is the answer but I notice that the board states DDR2 1066 is expected and you have 800 inserted. Worth checking out, IMO.
