My machine won't turn on. It started with a power outage. When I would press the power button, nothing would happen at all. After 2 RMA'd mobo's and a new CPU (AMD X2 4400+), I figured the old 500W PSU was fried, as the machine worked perfectly for a few months prior to the outage.
Anyway, I just got a new 580W Hiper modular PSU, installed it, hooked up everything (loooove the modular cabling, as a side note), made sure all connections were good, made sure the mobo was not grounded, checked all the jumpers, capacitors, fan plugs, etc...and now the fans try to spin and the LED's flash when I press the power button, but nothing else.
A rundown of the equipment, other than the aforementioned:
MoBo - ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
Case - Coolermaster with 3 80mm fans and blue LED's
Vid Card - EVGA nVidia GeForce 6800GT 256MB PCI-E x 16
Sound Card - Soundblaster Audigy 2.0
HDD - Western Digital Caviar SE 200GB
RAM - G.SKILL PC3200 2GB (4 x 512MB)
Optical Drives - ASUS QuietTrack CD-ROM/RW, CompUSA DVD-ROM (cheap, I know)
OS - Windows XP Home SP2
Monitor, keyboard, mouse are all basic...but I figured they wouldn't impact power problems anyway.
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
