Computer Problem (non DFI)

Hey guys my friend just bought a new setup and it has some problems.

 

It's:

- ASUS board

- Enermax 500Watt PSU (with 20 pin mobo connector + an extra 4 pin connector)

- OCZ RAM

- 7800GT

- AMD64 3700+

 

Now heres the problems:

- The board has 3 power connectors, the main, a 4 hdd pin connector and a 4 square pin connector). It only powers on when just the main connector is in, when the others are in it won't power on at all.

 

- Once it powers on, there is no video.

 

- There is no beep.

 

- Holding down the ON/OFF switch doesn't shutdown the computer, it has to be turned off from the switch on the PSU

 

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

thanks

Frends dont let frends buy Asus (just kidding well sort of). What board might help they probibily have a dozen out there right now if buisness is as usual there. I would use the general advice of reinstalling it outside the MB with known good components especaly PSU. Reseat the CPU etc. Try it with just the P4 connector and not the MOLEX too.

 

ABX foums was the main Asus support site way back when I had one. http://www.abxzone.com/forums/index.php they are more into the software side than ovverclocking but sadly it was the only dedicated Asus site I could find back then.

Does the onboard led light up? What mobo is it? what PSU? The motherboard has a 24pin or 20 pin connector? You said the PSU has a 20+4 pin power connector, does it have the other 4 pin connector as well?

Need a few more details concerning the system in question.

 

- motherboard model

- motherboard BIOS date (if known)

- video card model

 

Have you tested the motherboard outside the case with only the CPU & HSF, 1 stick of RAM, PSU and video card installed? That would be the place to start.

On-Topic: No offense ReelFiles, but before replacing any component, it is always recommended to remove the components from the case and test with the basic minimum components on a clean, anti-static, anti-conductive surface. The motherboard box with a piece of anti-static foam under the motherboard or a wood surface.

 

Off-Topic: Doing OK. Very busy assisting my friend's family.

You're completely right, ACE. No offense taken (constructive criticism always welcome) Sometimes I forget that not everyone bench tests their machine before putting it together. Doing that can save a lot of time and headaches, Milkshake.

Listen to Ace, he's the man.
