This computer is NEWLY BUILT 
I am having trouble. I have ran through checklists and still have not fixed the issue. 
I have one stick of ram in dimm 2 right now. 
I have all the fans plugged in properly. 
Nothing is touching the mobo that would short it out.
I have reseated the 8 pin and 24 pin power cords. 
I have turned the PSU power button to on, the whole PC turns on. fan and all, even the "audio boost" on the motherboard lights up but no POSTing or onboard video output is flowing . 
The CMOS battery is in place. I have tried clearing the CMOS in between moving around the ram sticks. and yes the Power button on the case is connected properly to the motherboard
I really am starting to feel helpless right now. I have no idea what the issue could be. I just want this thing to work. PLEASE HELP ME

The next step is to try a vid-card. If it works, then the MB is bad.


Check the MB carefully for any damaged components, especially broken or leaky caps. Make sure the RAM is seated snugly, and try it in alternative slots.


Try it now.

Did you put case/motherboard standoffs in? Sometimes they are needed and other times they are not. They put a space between the case and the motherboard so the metal solder joints don't short to the metal case. Some cases have the standoffs built in.



If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
