The Nefarious G

New system, will not boot.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I recently got in all my parts from newegg and pcboost and I'm having a huge problem with my system. Here are the parts I'm using first off:

 

Intel Abit IP35-E http://www.uabit.com/index.php?option=com_...age=1&model=386

 

Intel Q6600 Quad-core 2.40ghz 1066fsb

 

Evga Geforce 8800GTS 640mb

 

2x 1gb OCZ Gold edition PC 6400 (DDR2-800mhz)

 

PSU - 600w Coolermaster

 

It's all assembled and ready to go... but I hit the power button and nothing. No led's... no fans, nothing. I've tried different power sockets, rewired the case just to double check... nothing. Also in the MB manual the normal IP-35 board has LED indicator lights that show when it is receiving power from a powered on PSU. These lights do not appear to be present on the IP35-E however, or the MB is not getting power and I am utterly failing at seeing them. Any suggestions?! I am dying to check out some 3d marks and bioshock on this monster...

Should be obvious; but:

- is the PSU switched on

- is the power cord plugged in (to the PSU and the mains)

- if it's plugged into a power strip; is that turned on

- are all power connections to the MB in place

Got it powered up! Thank you to syngensmyth for his suggestion of taking it out. The MB was actually missing one standoff and therefor touching exposed metal on the case preventing any power from flowing. Thanks again to DIY-street and everyone that responded. Now for some benchmarks with the Q6600 :drool:
