Hi. I recently ordered a new case, because I thought my old case had a problem. The power would turn on, but it only gave my motherboard power for 2-3 seconds. So I ordered a new case.

With all the motherboards I've thrown in this case it does not start up. All 3 motherboards I used, use to work in my old case before I had the power issue I talked about above. I do not think the new case I ordered is defective because my friend ordered the same case and same problem.

Case:

Motherboard:

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong but its really upsetting me :thumbsup: The f_panel is set up correct, and everything is..I just need to know why it doesent work.. It would be VERY VERY appreciated if you tech guru's could help me!

What power supply are you using? (Someone block out his email and aim name, spam bots will nab it soon =/ ) Sounds more like a power supply issue than a case or mobo issue.

Could it be something with your power supply? Even possibly your overloading it with too many peripherals? I would suggest trying another power supply if you can.

The only reason I can think of why a case would keep your computer from turning on would be maybe the button to turn it on sticks. If it doesn't, your case shouldn't be the problem. Hope this helps!

I agree, if possible, unplug some unused things in you case (floppy drive, extra fans) and see if you can boot then. If not, I'd try to replace the power supply.
