Question about Computers & Internet
I have recently purchased Intel Desktop Board D865GBF/D865PERC 865G.
i believe i have put the front panel pins in properly but it wil not starts. the fan starts for a breif second then stops. im running it on a 235w psu could this be the problem? if not i have no idea what else i can try any advice would be greatly appreciated.
First double check your front panel Connector it is laid out as follows
The power switch should attach to pins 6 & 8. The Pins for the reset switch should attach to pins 7 & 9 if its a two pin connector if it is a 3 pin Connector add in pin 5
The power LED connects to pins 2 & 4 The HDD activity LED attaches to pins 1 & 3.
If either or both of these LED's don't light up when the PC is running then reverse the pins for the respective LED(s)
Once the connections are confirmed
Check that the CPU is properly seated, the RAM and Video card connectors have lock down latches. Make sure they swing up and fully seat into the notches on the Ram modules and Video card
Make sure that both power connectors are attached there is a 20 pin ATX connector and a 12V connector (a 4 pin square connector) next to the CPU they should seat until the plastic clip clicks into place.
If the Video card you have chosen has a seperate power connection make sure that has been attached.
You should now be ready to give it a try again. If when you try to turn it on again you see a light on your Motherboard you know the board is OK. If not you may have a damaged Motherboard (Which you should get replaced under warranty)
If the light comes on but your PC tries to come up and it shuts down again immediately, you likely have either a damaged CPU or bad Ram modules. Which you should also replace under warranty.
If you have any further questions please post a comment here and I will try to help you further

Tips for a great answer:
Feb 05, 2012 | IBM NetVista PC Desktop
Jun 02, 2011 | Intel Dot Station (INTC300AIO) PC Desktop
Test or replace your PSU power supply unit preferably with a heavy duty one with plenty of wattage remembering that with any added hardware your computer will use more power/wattage eg:more RAM ,bigger hard drive,slave drive
One bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems continually rebooting or failing to detect your drive
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps?
