Question about Computers & Internet
When i turn plug in the power supply into the wall, a small green light on the mother board turns on, when i hit the power switch on the front of the case nothing happens. (the cpu fan doesn't turn on, hard drives don't boot up ect.) . after about 30 sec, thier is a really high pitched, but really quite noise.
it has a new 1.7ghz processor in it, and two sticks of ram (fully seated and latched in place)
(the front of the case wires are correctly placed and secured onto the board as well)
Is the board bad, or is it possible im over looking something?
has anyone else ahd the same issue?
my e-mail addy is email@example.com
The green led light on the motherboard mean the board has stand- by power to it. (This is normal).
You stated you installed a new CPU.
The high pitch you heard could mean you did not add thermal grease or thermal tap between the processor & the heat-sink assembly. (A must have product). When you press the power on button on the case & nothing seems to run, Re check your memory & as Smithbrother suggested insert one stick of memory at a time & try powering up the system. If you have an AGP card already installed, re-move it & re-seat it.
Intel list a bios update. This update is for - B-0014.
Fixed the issue with booting using 2.0Ghz processor.
Your new CPU of 1.7 is close. (Not sure if this will fix your problem. Save flashing the bios as a last ditch effort).
Here is the Intel link for your motherboard;
Just in case I'll include a YouTube video on how to install a CPU;
