I recently got an old compaq motherboard (1999) and a pentium 3 processor to put on it. Wel i build everything in the casing, and connected the cd-rom, floppy, harddrive etc. But when i turn on the power, a light goes on on the motherboard, i have the original start up button (with wires and everything) but when i klick it nothing happens :thumbsup: . I have connected the power plug into the motherboard and the cables for on/off (there 1 block you put on a row of spikes).

Does anyone know what i did wrong?

Ow, and i also took of al the hardware exept the motherboard and it stil wont go on, so it isnt deu to the hardware.
