    Well the above problem is when only cpu (and ofc fan), ddrs, and one sata hdd, there is no problem with power supply, because it work perfectly fine in older configuration which I'm now upgrading, the graphic card in integrated in mb. There is no option of replacing one of the components because i don't have any spare parts, nor do i have any access to them.

Hi,
I don't know how computer technical you are, but it sounds like you knw a thing or two about them. So here's the best way to find the problem:
There could be many things that could stop the board from fully booting, Determining what is wrong is like detective work. What I do, is open up the case and take everything off the board to start. Then add the minimum to start a board to see if it will start. That's one drive (cd, harddrive or otherwise) the CPU, a graphics card (only if required) and one bank of memory. (which is not required, but it helps avoid beep codes) Also, make sure you have your pin's set on the board absolutely correct, or that could be your problem to begin with. If your going to load a ide drive, make sure you set your pin setting correctly on it, meaning the drive (IDE or EIDE) your putting on the board is set to Master, or Cable Select if your using the cable placement method.
Now, turn it on, and you should get the power supply on, and the cpu fan going. If they start, then make the next step to have the single drive be your hard drive, and see if it boots. If it boots, then great, open Bios and make sure Bios is reading the board and all things are fine with it. If so, what ever you put on next make sure it one at a time so you can identify what it doesn't like.
In the case where the CPU or power supply don't power up, it's then either one of the six elements. The CPU, Power supply, Ram, Drive, graphics card (if required) or the motherboard.
The next step is to replace each one of the first five, starting with the Ram Chip, put another like chip in and see the results. Then do the same thing to each of the remaining 4 components, the graphics card (if required), then the drive(cd, harddrive or otherwise), on to the CPU, and last the power supply. Hopefully something will show it's ugly way to make a change. Also, on the drive (IDE, EIDE or SATA) , try a different cable to make sure it's not that,
Now If no changes happen after all that, then I take it one step futher and usually get a like (doesn't have to be exactly the same, but a board that the components can be tested on) motherboard that I can test the first four, and make sure that they really work. If after that and you have tested all of the components and they all work, then it's save to say you have a bad Board my friend. It's a lot of work I know, but it's the sure fire way of finding out what isn't working.
 
Good Luck

Mark

    If your power is turning on you cpu and hard drive and all other components you know for a fact are compatible and are in working conditions, then your board is bad. Like I said, if you can't test the equipment then your shooting in the dark, Boards are like a recipe, if you don't have all the right ingredients it won't work. You asked for advice, and with the information you've provided this is all I can suggest. Perhaps if you want to post the info on the CPU, Memory, and Hard Drive as well as any other components that your placing on the board, I could tell you more. Otherwise, there is no problems listed with ASRock or reason why you are having this problem, other than you have a bad board.

You can test the power button. Remove the wires from the power on pins on the motherboard. Momentarily jump the two pins with a small screwdriver. If the computer starts the power button is bad. If it still doesn't start then something else is wrong. Did you test the memory? Also do all of the fans work, especially the CPU fan? It can't hurt to test with the other PSU. You know the HDD is good. Test one piece of hardware at a time and hopefully you will find the problem.

Your list of suspects:

1. Processor is cold dead.
2. Power Supply has got a problem. Just powering a fan is not a guarantee that it is powering everything normaly. Try a different one as you test agai.
3. I suspect your MoBo is good, but try a different video card also with your new DDR.
4. Do you hear the HDD cranking or whining when you turn on the PC? Keep ear near HDD and listen. It it whine-starts, it's a fair sign.
5. Try a different monitor while you test these.

Let us know what you find in clear detail.

No power up


Here was the fix for me. The machine refuses to boot if the video card is not functioning. It should have one long beep however to tell you that there is a video problem. Someone hooked up our speaker incorrectly though! So we got no beeps. Once the speaker was hooked up and the video card was replaced, all is well!
