New Computer Not Working!

Recommended Posts

Hi, I finally built my new comp after 2 weeks of waiting for my case which had to be replaced cause it was defective. When I try to start the computer, nothing happens at all! The "DRAM Power LED" and "Standby Power LED" are on. I had to leave all the parts in a box covered with newspaper on top for 2 weeks cause I was waiting for my new case to arrive. Btw, this is my first time building a comp, so maybe I did something wrong that alot of first timers do.

My specs are:

Put those details in your sig.

 

What's the status of the 4 red LEDs under the PCI slot? Did you follow the instructions? (all four power supply cables plugged into the board, etc).

Nope, none of the 4 LED lights are on. Only the DRAM Power LED and Standby Power LED are on. I think I've plugged in all the correct power cables, the 20-pin and the 2 4-pins.

I just got it to turn on! But I had to click the button that's on the motherboard to start it, the button on the front of my case doesn't do anything, even though I followed the directions and connected the little things on the motherboard correctly.

Now I got can turn it on with all the components in the system, but the 4 LED diagnostic lights just blink and the PSU blinks too. My PSU is 450W, so I should get a new one thats at LEAST 480W. I need a true 24-pin, I have a 20-pin plus a 4-pin which I'm guessing is NOT a true 24-pin.
