I cannot get my motherboard to work but there seems to be no fault. At the moment there is nothing on the motherboard. I have had to use a 4 pin to 8 pin adapter to get my PSU to plug in to all the pins.

Motherboard is ASUS P8Z77-V LX
PSU is Acbel FS8003

Any advice is appreciated.

Triple +12V rail PSU. I recommend getting something better with (8-pin) EPS12V connector.

Almost any modern good quality PSU is fine. For example http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094

Would this be a good choice?

Ok. I have got the motherboard working now with the corsair. I didn't want to wait longer to use the new board so I just got it from a shop near me.

But now I have a new issue. I cannot get the ethernet port on this motherboard to work.

I would like to not have to use a wireless adapter as the Internet seems to have trouble connecting in my area of my house.

Once again, any help is appreciated.

When you plug cable to ethernet port, do you see any lights around it?

No. I have looked into it and apparently it is the realtek ethernet connector driver not working. It shows up in my programs and files but no on my device manager.

I am gonna try a possible fix and see what happens. If this don't work I will get a hold of a network adapter to use instead.

That is not a driver problem if no lights are on.

Ok.

I am just going to stop trying to get it working now. Bit annoyed that the ethernet is just broken as the person who sold it to me mentioned nothing about it. I am going to get a network adapter to use instead.

 

Cheers for all the help.
