I'm fairly adept at building and upgrading computers but don't know much about diagnostics. My situation:
I'm upgrading my computer and at the same time moving my old board (mb, cpu, ps, and video card) to my wife's (even older) computer. My problem occurred while putting my old board into my wife's computer. I've done this probably a dozen times plus I built both computers. This time after the install I powered up just to see the cpu and video card fans spin for a couple of seconds and then quit. It would not react to a second push of the "ON" button unless I first removed and reapplied power to the unit and then it just repeats the momentary on scenario.
Diamond HD3870 DDR4
AMD 64 X2 5200
G.Skill 2 x 1GB DDR2
The legacy components include:
2 DVD RW drives of unk mfgr
1 floppy drive
The motherboard and all its components and ps were working fine when I pulled them from my computer. Any help would certainly be appreciated.
