Have you connected the small 4pin power connector to M/B apart from 24 pin main power connector ?

What config you running cpu/ram etc? would give us better idea if you could post pic of complete M/B.

IIRC, its the power supply for processor. Correct me if I am wrong.

I think that he would have connected as he did state that he has got the connections as the manual.

Try the below:

1) connect only the power switch cable to the motherboard. Rest all, like power led, reset switch, hdd led etc leave it un connected. Here please follow what "reignofchaos" has mentioned, imprint needs to face outside MB.
2) Remove any PCI card, external h/w that you might have installed.
3) Try to boot with only processor, RAM, SMPS connected to motherboard. And to the tower ensure only Monitor, keyboard and mouse is connected.

If no boot,
remove RAM and connect the cabinet speaker wire to MB and try booting without RAM. it should ideally give you continous beeps.

Still no boot,
i would say its a problem with your MB or SMPS. If you can arrange another SMPS elsewhere connect the SMPS to the motherboard, not necessary you neet to screw SMPS connected to the cabinet.

If still no go,
It needs proffesional equipments to check each h/w individually.

good Luck

Check RAM. If RAM is OK, then its Mobo.

Did you check the power cable to the PSU? Cuz if nothing happens when you hit the power button (provided you plugged the cable for the switch properly to the mobo), it is less likely to be a RAM problem and more probably total mobo failure or something wrong in the power section.

take a paper clip. remove the power pin (ATX and +4pin) from mobo.

Short the green pin of SMPS with any black one. if the SMPS fan runs. The SMPS is good.

Now remove the 2032 battery from mobo. Taste it with ur tongue. If u feel any tingy taste (like nimbu) the battery is good.

Feel any chipset (black ICs or the one with heat sink) with ur finger while powering it on. if you feel excessive heat, Mobo is conked

Hi , I had a similar problem recently attaching my i-ball Chassis to the Motherboard.


Best thing is that even if you mess around these chassis connections then also it wonít harm the Motherboard so relax,

Try to connect one connector at a time & test as follows Ö.I learned it the hard way.
Power switch (usually marked on MB or manual)- Testing it is the surest way to check , if the PC turns On then it is correctly placed. No donít touch that connector.
Reset Switch (usually marked on MB or manual)- Testing it is the surest way to check , if the PC resets then it is correctly placed. No donít touch that connector.

Now remains the LED part

HDD led is sensitive to polarity (If it does not light up then try reversing the polarity)

Power Led is sensitive to polarity If it does not light up then try reversing the polarity) In my case the Connector had a 3 pin connection the middle pin was a dummy hence I had to manually short the middle pin to turn on the Power LED.
