Howdy all, new to this forum..
Recently built a PC (P4 630 (3Ghz), Gigabyte GA-8i955X-Pro, 2GB Corsair RAM, ATI X800GTO 256MB, Audigy 2 ZS). Anyway, was running quite hot when playing BF2 (due to the ambient temps in the room) so I bought a Thermaltake SI-120 with the bracket. Pulled everything apart and installed the new heatsink and a panalo fan, then put everything back together...plugged it in expecting the best...and...NOTHING!
Pressed the power button and all that happens is the fan (just) starts to spin and then stops - no power light or anything. So i pulled everythin out and just tried it with the CPU and MB power connected (and the power switch of course) and same thing - nothing.
I took al the precautions - anti static wirst strap connected to pc case, antistatic mat (like what comes with the MB) - there is no visible damage and I was gentle when I did it... I will try the PSU from my old PC, but this one is only one month old (Thermaltake 430W) so what is going on!! Dont really want to fork out more $$$$$ for a MB or PSU..... PLEASE HELP!!!
