Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

First Time Build

I am in the process of building a computer for the first time and I am at a stand still. I have all the hardware installed in the case, and I have hooked up all the wiring to the motherboard, psu and other components. I go to push the power button and nothing happens. I'm not sure what the exact problem is, all of the power cords are connected, the power button is connected to the mb in the right spot. I know this is a vague problem but any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Be careful to note whether you have the power switch connector plugged into the correct place. Sometimes with the two rows of multiple pin connectors it is difficult to tell if you have plugged it into the right place.

make sure you have the main 20pin power connector AND the 4 pin standby connector both plugged into the mb. The 4 pin receptacle on the board is sometimes hard to see because it is close to the CPU.

Unplug all the case connectors going to the mobo and try this. Take a small metal object like a small screwdriver and short out the two "power" pins on the mobo. The motherboard should power up. If it does, try plugging the case wires in again, being careful to plug them in across exactly the pins you used to turn it on by shorting it. If it still doesn't work, it is probably a faulty power switch on the case

How can I speed up my computer?


How long ago was Windows installed? Over time, the system will get slower. This is not unusual. It may be time to backup all your data and re-install Windows as a fresh build. This will improve things significantly. Depending on what hardware specs you are running, this could be impacting performance as well. Vista was always heavy on resources.

Hardware conflict blue screen


I bought a used computer that stopped working all the time. I installed new OS, same problem. It was the CPU that was overheating. The thermal paste under the CPU was dried and crusty. New paste cured it.

On yours, check for dust build up and feel if any components are too hot. Also reinstall all drivers for your motherboard, get the newest ones from your mo-bo mfr. web site.

What hard drives can I use as replacements?


Call Dell with your Service Tag.
Lifetime support is included on all Dell servers.
Last time I called them I dialed (800) 945-3355
They can sell you the hardware you need and guarantee it will work with your server. They might even be able to help explain the process of installing the drives.

I recommend that you use Acronis' Imaging software (www.acronis.com) so that you can make an exact copy of your data and apply it to the replacement volumes. If you are using a RAID1 array make sure the new array is completely built before applying your image. Builds can take a long time. I created a RAID1 array with 2-320GB disks and it took 3.5 hours to build the RAID1 array.

I hope this helps.

Please vote for my solution if it helps.

No booting or nothing


Did you have a power surge in your area recently? Sounds like it could have been damaged. Can you press the F8 key (continually) while it's starting to boot & get the setup menu?
