Hello. 

 

So I have recently purchased a motherboard. 

 

HP 696549-002 MERLIN MOTHERBOARD WITH INTEL QUAD CORE i5-4570 3.20Ghz/3.60Ghz

 

(I know, it's bleep) 

 

But I am trying to get it to work, I have purchased an adapter that will fit the 24pin socket from the PSU into it and it will divide into two separate sockets.

 

So I finally set everything up and even the power is flown into the motherboard because when I turn on my PSU after plugging it it, both the motherboard and the GPU light up, indicating that it is receiving power but the problem is? Start button.

 

On the new motherboard, I have no idea where I need to plug the power button socket in because there are many similar pins.

 

One says "Front USB" another says "Media" and I have no idea where to plug the power button's cables in because there are no matching sockets. 

 

I have tried using the methods from YouTube that says you can power it without he button by simply touching two pins together using a screw driver. 

 

But it just doesn't work, someone please help me out.

hi,

 

if your motherboard receive power from your psu then your problem is with the pwr (power connector)

 

if you can find the pdf manual then you will see how your pwr connector can be connected otherwise try to find a photo of your motherboard

Your PSU is what?

 

That motherboard uses non-standard PSU connectors.

My PSU is a Crosair CX 600 and yes I know, I use an adapter for it. 

 

But the problem is I can't get the button to work

 

@nickos, I will soon.

Some times the power button is connected to the power supply instead.  Those MOBO's are a pain to assemble, prefer to start on a benchtop before installing in the chassis.

But where would it be on a Crosair 600 CX, see the power button's socket is like this:
[-] = Blocked of hole

[ ] = Normal hole

 

[ ][ ][ ][ ][ ]

[ ][ ][ ][ ][-]

 

One little space hole is blocked off. I don't know if it matters how many of them are plugged in.

So does anyone have any idea what to do.

 

I simply can't get my PC to start once I plug in the power button into the socket, I don't know if I need a different one, but when I turn on the PSU the GPU and motherboard light us as if it is receiving power,
