Hi, I recently upgraded my pc replacing the motherboard with an "Elite K8T800-A VIA K8T800 skt754 1600FSB DDR +SATA +6 ch. audio ATX" and processor to an "AMD Athlon 64 2800+ 64 bit Skt" all connections and jumpers are set correctly looked over it many times, yet when I power the pc on nothing happens, no fans start its like there's no power at all. I only replaced the power supply a year ago but am wondering if it may have gone or is perhaps not compatible with the motherboard.

Any ideas would be welcome.

Are you sure that you got the wires connected correctly from the power switch to the motherboard? A power supply tester might be handy about now - they're available for about $12. You plug your power supply into the tester and then plug in the power, then you can check other power connections. If the PS is good, perhaps it's a dead board. You did follow correct static electricity precautions when installing the board?

Tiger Direct

EZ Tester

Tiger Direct 2

That last is the one I have.
