Question about Gigabyte GA-8IE533 Motherboard
I recently had the power supply on my PC go out. After ordering a new one and installing, the computer will still not power up. I tested the new power supply and it is good. After some troubleshooting I found that the power supply itself will power up only when the 12 volt 4-pin connector is not attatched to the mother board. Even then, only the power supply activates, not the motherboard itself or anything else in the computer, for that matter. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
Sounds like your board has some issues (might of even caused your power supply to fail) try unplugging all IDE devices, removing pci slotted cards and anything else plugged into the board so you are only left with the Motherboard, Processor and Memory. Try to start the board now to see if one of your devices was causing the problem. If the board now comes on, try installing the devices back one by one to see which one is causing the problem. If that still doesn't work, try to further test your possible to see if they are working correctly. If all that fails, your board is probably the cause and needs to be replaced. Good Luck.
