Hi,

i got an motherboard from my school. I tested it on school and everything worked properly. So i took the whole package home (verry carefull ofcourse). I build the motherboard in my case and connected only the power cable of the mother board and tried to start it ..but no reaction :S. This is the second time this happened to me with 2 the same motherboards. When i put on the power a light goes on the board but thats it...nothing more...
Does anyone here have an solution about this? I thought it might be the power supply, but if thats wrong why does the light go on:S...

It could be a short. Try taking the motherboard out of the case and put it on a non-conductive surface, then try starting it.

It could also still be a power supply problem. That the green led turn on does not exclude that possibility.

I'd second that notion.

ok, thanx for the reply's :thumbsup:

i'll ask if i can have a power suplly from school to test it here, but i have a 20 pins power supply and the motherboard is 24 pins, i have a connector between. Maybe that could be the problem?
