Question about EliteGroup L7VMM2 Motherboard
Plugging in the power supply, the mobo LED light inside becomes lit. I hit the power button and the power LED light becomes lit but nothing else kicks in (fans, HDs, bios, etc.). There's a "Test Switch" on the power supply so I pressed it and held it in and the computer boots up normally as long as I keep my finger on the switch. If I were to let go, everything but the power LED light and the mobo LED light goes off. Say I hit the power button for 5 seconds to shut it off. Now when I hit the "Test Switch", the CPU fan and the power supply fan turn on but, of course, the HD and everything else won't because the power button wasn't hit. There are 5 wires coming from the power button area. Three wires are coming from to the dual-color power LED (green/red for standy mode). The other two come from the power button switch. The opposite end of the wires go to the motherboard grouped together. It seems that the power supply is operating fine when I hit the test switch on its side. This must mean that the mobo isn't signaling the power supply to power up when the power button is hit. I can't imagine the power button being bad because the LED does light up when the button is depressed. Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong? The PS is working, the fans are working, when the FDD is NOT connected the CD tray opens. When the FDD is connected, the CD tray does not operate, the FDD light does NOT come on, the power LED does not light up and the computer will not POST email@example.com
It could be your power switch, veriy that it isnt the power supply by
1.) un-plug it from the main board
2.) look at the main board connector(one coming of the power supply)
3.) you should see green wire and next to it a black one
4.) using a paper clip bridge the too wires
5.) if it works proceed to net step if not get a new power supply
to check case switch and board switch
1.) plug in power supply to main board
2.) look at the pins where the power button connects to
3.) using a metal object (blade screw driver) bridge the pins
if the board should start up>
then its your power button on the case that is bad, you can try to repair it, chage it or buy a new case,
if it doesnt work.
1.) ensure that jcms(jumper to flash the bios) is set correctly
2.) unjack each drive one at a time to see if any is causing stalling
3.) get a new main board
