Check whether you have connected the motherboard controls(power_button,rest_switch) correctly.Check it in your motherboard manual and also check whether the cooler fan on the CPU along with the heat-sink are placed properly and attached to the respective connectors.
First, check if the connection from the power supply to the motherboard is properly inserted. If it's loose, that may be whats causing you to receive no power from the supply. Check the wall socket to make sure it works, as well as checking if everything is plugged in properly. If you are still getting no power, then it maybe time to buy a new power supply. If there is some indicator of power to the mother board , such as an LED or light that turns on when plugged in, there may be a problem with your power switch.
All I read properly .Please remove power supply from HDD and CD /DVD RW. If you face the same problem Open the mother board on a open place and try it again ,because there are some particles witch has made the short sercit in your M. Board.Cgeack all voldage socket plkaced properly,MAY BE CAN SILLY MISTAKE FOR 4 pin socket .
If you face same problem please install in another mother board .Post me please imediate next result.
I would disconnect everything. To the motherboard I would connect the power supply , one stick of ram , video card if there is not video intergrated on the motherboard already. Leave the cpu fan plugged in of course. Leave the power on button connected, disconnected all usb, audio, everything. Remember what you disconnected and where so you can reconnect later. After all this , see if you can get BIOS. If that didn't work I would switch the stick of ram out try again.
If you "popped" the power supply, I would check to see if the RAM might have taken a hit as well. Ram chips and CPU are sensitive when it comes to power surges. I would troubleshoot the system, unplug everything. you need monitor, power, cpu, and ram (1 at a time). Check to see if the system will POST. if you do get it to POST, start with 1 item at a time and see if the system will POST every time. If nothing happens, there is a chance you may have a damaged motherboard or cpu.
1. Check that the cpu fan is properly connected to the correct port marked CPU FAN.
2. Make sure the power cables are connected correctly to the motherboard.
3. Test the button switch with a multi-tester to make sure that it tests good.
4. Make sure the power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard.
5. With the computer off pop the cr2032 battery out and pop it back in after a few minutes.
6. Test the power supply with either another motherboard or a power supply tester.
7. Test the motherboard with another power supply.
8. If all else fails replace the motherboard I have had a bad one from time to time even out of the box, and if you have a spare cpu you may want to test with that also. Cpu's hardly ever go bad I think I have had two go bad ever, not counting power surges and storm damage.
it could be two reasons.
1. your RAM has a issue ( try a different ram from a friends pc)
2. your Graphics card is having an issue. ( try removing & fixing back on, if it does notwork.. either get a friends graphics card & ifix on to your pc & chk or fix your VGA card on to another PC & chk if the VGA card works. either way you will find out what wrong.
CHECK ALL JUMPER ON THE BOARD AND MAKE SURE THE BOIS RESET JUMPER IS ON JUMPER 1-2, SOUND LIKE A POWER SUPPLY PROBLEM NOT ENOUGH WATT TO RUN THE SYSTEM
2ND OPTION, REMOVE ALL WIRE AND ADDTIONAL CARDS, MIN. MEMORY, LEAVING 1 STICK OF RAM, VEDOI CONNECTION , AND THE POWER TO THE BOARD, CONNECT ONE WIRE AT A TIME AND RESTARTING THE MACHINE EVERY TIME UNTIL YOU FIND THE PROBLEM.
First test the MB with only the minimal components (ie. cpu + ram + vga card if not onboard). Disconnect all other components. If still not starting, try using just a single ram module, if you have more than one, to try & determine if one of them is faulty.
