Question about Computers & Internet
L have already connected the 24pin power to the power connector and to the 4 pin ATX power but the board power would not switch on even though the powe supply light at the back of the computer is on
Well, then it could be one of 3 things, it could still be the power supply that's at fault. If you have a PSU tester, check the voltage on each rail and see if it's coming in properly (if you don't have a tester, bring the unit to an authorized service center to have it tested). The second option, would of course be the motherboard may have failed or is defective. Make sure that when you connect the ATX power supply to the board, remove all the RAM, hard drives, optical drives and expansion cards from your PCI, PCI-E, AGP, ISA, or whathaveyou and try with just the board and the power. If it's still a no go, then board or possibly processor may be shot.
Last option, and this one is the sillier of the three, also make sure that you have the jumper pin for the front panel power button connected to its respective spot on the motherboard itself. I know it may sound silly, but I have to say it, as a technical expert, because, well, you never know.
