PC wont even kick

By antspants00 ·
I have a P4S800 MB, P4 2.8 Ghz CPU, RADEON 9600 128MB Graphics card and 512 DDR 400 RAM.
Problem: I connect everything i can find and double check all the jumpers etc but nothing happens when try and turn it on (there is power in the MB because the MB light does come on). The fan doesn't even start.
Any Help would be great!

Make sure all your power connections are seated firmly.

Disconnect everything but the motherboard. Repower. See if you get beep alerts.

And I've seen bad mother boards that would light on the indicator lamp, but were not functioning.

can you check the power coming from the power supply?

some times the fuse in the power supply burns outs.
I have replaced a couple of them and them worked again.

if you do not know what you are doing you WILL get hurt.
Very few tech will work on a power supply.
They just replace them.

good luck

Check that the motherboard isn't shorting to the chassis. I've seen this before. I have seen IDE data cables without polarisers which enable the cable to be connected incorrectly.
