MotherBoard won't power on (Could be LED placement issue)

I have a MSI P45 Platinum and Everything seems to be connected properly but the motherboard or fans wont turn on, the motherpower power light is red but no LED lights are on, I think i may have connected them wrong and I don't know the correct way of putting them. Someone help me please, I'm using 650 Watt power supply so thats not the problem ^-^.

Hi there.
On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

Is it possible to use intel duel core E5400 processor with MSI B75MA-P45 Motherboard? or any other motherboard support DDR3?

Hello here is the cpu list, for the asus board:

Here is the msi site:

Your current cpu will not fit on the msi board, because it is a different socket.

The asus board has socket LGA 775, and the msi board has socket 1155.

You have to buy a new cpu for the msi board, to make it work.

Here is the cpu list:

If you want to keep the socket 775, you probably have to find a used mainboard, because this socket type is phased out.

Some online stores still have this mainboard type available, but a new mainboard will have the DDR3 ram socket.

Good luck

Power button hookup confusion

hey there

It easy to insert the connector of Reset, Power, And LED

Becuse everything is used to be properly written ur motherboard,

Checkout for the lower left corner of ur motherboard.(Behind the FDD Connector's right corner)

Hookup the connection by reading on down of the every PINs on your board.

First check thru visual if there are signs of burnt transistors and bulged capacitors. Check for open fuses and resitors, broken lines. And reheat the motherboard if necessary. Hope this gives you hint.
