Thread: MOBO/Power Problem

    MOBO/Power Problem

    I can't seem to get my new system up and running. Everything is put together in the normal fashion: ATX case, KOB KT266a FDSUX motherboard, HD all set up normaly. The problem is, I can't get the power to work. If I hold down the power button it will boot for about a second and a half and then stop. The power connector inside the case is connected correctly to the motherboard and the power supply is connected to the MOBO in the normal ATX fashion.

    Any ideas? Is this a MOBO problem, case problem, or a common problem that can be fixed I just never ran into?

    Have you checked the jumper settings?

    No I haven't but I am about to. I've never had to do that before. I'm not sure if thats been a long streak of luck or what!

    This is the first system I put together that I didn't install the CPU Fan right away (it's on backorder). Will this keep it from booting?

    very much so. You at least need a heat sink to dippreciate the heat.

    AFAIK it shouldn't. You should at least see it post.

    I think he said it did.

    Maybe not.

    *edit* Regardless you can't expect it to stay on long at all.

    No POST. It stays on for only 1.5 seconds at most.

    I have one comming on back order, I just want to make sure the system works so I can send anything back ASAP if I need to.

    I had the same problem. Why does it matter which way the fan/heatsink is put on??? it semms kinda stupid it has to be on a certain way.

    I burned a processor once for putting the heatsink the other way around. Basically, it doesn't have the same surface contact, and as such, can't dissipate the heat as well.

    I had a motherboard that did something similar. After a month fighting with it, I read on a BBS that they shipped it by default with the jumper settings in such a way it wouldn't work for me. I changed them to fit my settings, and it worked good.
