i need some help on this one, ive been through the trouble shooting section in the motherboard user manual and im all out of ideas except for tearing it down and starting over...


I cannot get the system to power on, i have unplugged the power and reset wires, checked and replugged them in but nothing i do has helped. the only way i can get anything to happen is buy unplugging the ATX supply to the mother board and re connecting the system fans breifly begin to spin and light up but shut off again


system is:


MSI B450 motherboard

Ryzen 5 2600X

TeamForce DDR4 3000 16-18-18-38v1.35V



I have attached a brief video showing what i describe above. Any advice would be appreciated, its been like 7 years since i built a PC.


PS. No, i didnt forget the motherboard spacers before you ask...

Turns out I'm just an idiot, had the power switches plugged into completely the wrong set of pins...
