Pleeese HELP, I have bought a new mobo, CPU, Power supply, ram, and case. With just the Power supply CPU and mobo hooked up I get nothing. I tried a different Power supply shorted the on switch still nothing but a green light on the mobo when power is turned on no fans no beeps. This nightmare all started with a blue screen problem that has me changing all parts out and still nothing with all new stuff. Are there jumpers and settings on the mobo I'm missing? For all that's right and decent in the world PLEEASE HELP!

A couple of thoughts: Read the manually carefully. Be sure you have followed correctly.

Unplug hard drive, optical drives, floppy drives. Now see if the computer will at least get past the POST and start looking for the hard drive. If it does, then plug in one item at a time and repeat.

Make SURE the motherboard is not shorting out on the computer case. Did you install the stand offs before installing the mobo? You can even remove the mobo from the case, making sure the CPU, CPU fan, and RAM is installed, plug it into the power supply and try when out of the case.

Look carefully at the pins on the CPU. Did you bend one?

Is the RAM seated all the way and is it compatable with the mobo?

I have read the manual seem to be set up correctly. Only have mobo, power supply and CPU plugged in. CPU fits good no bent pins and orientation is correct. Using all standoffs see no shorting. Ram out for now but is PC3200DDR. Still when I turn power switch on on the power supply all I get is a green light on the mobo using case power switch nothing and no case lights no fans no power supply fan nothing. are there any voltage reading I should take?? are there jumpers I might be missing. Thanks for your help so far,Albert I thought this was going to be somewhat easy. I guess I was mistaken.

Well after further review I noticed I bought a P4 775 socket power supply and I have a P4 478 mobo I guess I missed that spec. Now it starts but shuts off after 5 secs I'm guessing because I have no heatsink and fan on the CPU yet. will attach and try.
