Its been a while since I put a computer together and I'm just trying to get a little input before I return it.
Basically, when I try to start it, it doesn't start. No fans turn or anything. The power button on the board lights up for a second, and the power supply makes a click and thats it. If I disconnect the 8 pin CPU power, it will start. (although that doesn't help me much) I've taken out the cpu and made sure it was set correctly. I've changed power supplies. I've removed the video card. I've removed the memory. Still does the same thing.
Am I missing something or should I return this baby?
I had the same exact problem. I would hit the power button on the mobo I would hear one click from the psu and then if I attempted to hit the power button again no click from the psu but the light would flash to show I hit the power button. If I disconected power from the psu and reattached it would let me make the click again and the only thing that ever lit up was the power button.
Just return it. That's what I did and everything is working perfectly now.
