Thread: New Build Problem

  1. #1

    New Build Problem

    I just built a new computer. Here are the specs:

    CPU AMD A64 X2 4800+ 2.5G AM2 65N
    CPU COOLER ROSEWILL RCX-Z940-SL
    ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe NF570SLI AM2
    2GB (2x1GB) Crucial Ballistix PC-6400 800MHz RAM
    VGA XFX PVT84GUDF3 8600GTS 256MB
    HD 160GB WD 7K 8M SATA2 WD1600AAJS (OS Only Drive)
    CREATIVE XtremeGamer 70SB073A00000 RT
    CASE RAIDMAX ATX-612WBP 500W BK
    DVD_BURN ASUS DRW-1814BLT LS BLK

    When I tried to power it up for the first time, I had to hold the power button in for two seconds. Then it would turn on, all the case fans and the heatsink will spin, but it shuts right off. The LED on the motherboard is illuminated green. What am I doing wrong?

    As phish said check the wires from the front panel are connected to the correct pins on the mobo.

    You may have the Power and Reset connections crossed.

    Could also be a faulty Power On switch.
