I just bought all new components for my first time trying to build my own PC. Except, my friend had a spare case and power supply which I figured I would save money on by just reusing.
Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus 755 mobo
BFG 7950GT video card
C2D E6600 2.4G 775
Corsair XMS2 (2 x 1GB) DDR2 SDRAM 800 (PC2 6400)
WD Caviar SE16 250GB 7200RPM SATA
DVD_BURN SONY NEC
Antec NeoHE 480 PSU
Big Case (forget the name)
I got everything put together and plugged into the correct connections. I flip the switch on the PSU and the little green LED turns on, on the mobo but when I hit the switch on the front of the case it does nothing. No fans, no noises, nothing on the LCD… nothing. My friend who has built his PCs from scratch before doesn’t really know what is wrong either.
So, I bought a new case and PSU because I really didn’t have faith anymore in the reused items. Tried new PSU (BFG 650W SLI ready) in the old case... same results (exactly the same). Tried new PSU and new Antec case… same result.
Do I just have a bad motherboard?
