Two possible causes - either you have installed it badly and it shorts to the case (take it out of the case and try it there) or not all the necessary cables were connected (check especially the power cables and the power button).

I have an Hp m260n. I just need to find out what type of case it has (ATX or uATX).

Motherboard: ASUS P4SD Motherboard Specifications

Board Form Factor: uATX

uATX stands for Micro-ATX,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MicroATX

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_form_factor

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_form_factor#Tabular_information

HOWEVER, the Power Supply is an ATX form factor,

http://www.911forpcs.com/hp-media-center-power-supply.html

,of a sort.

Form Factor related directly to desktop computer Motherboards.
Now has 'evolved' to relate to the computer case, and Power Supply.

When referring to a Power Supply, and the ATX form factor; you are not only referring to the size, and shape of the Power Supply's case; but also the type of power cables used, and the technology used within.

Size and shape of an ATX power supply is approximately;

6 Inches Wide, 5.5 Inches Long, and 3.5 Inches in Height.
(152.39mm Wide, 139.69mm Long, and 88.89mm in Height)

Power cables included with Power Supply's nowadays, will include all the power cables you'll need, with probably some left over.

HOWEVER, looking at the 'ATX' form factor designated for your computer, to wit from the ad above, it does NOT fit the above size, and shape.

More like 6 Inches Wide, 4 Inches Long, and 3.5 Inches in Height.
Looks like they just crammed everything into one small box.

Remove motherboard, and all internal hardware, into a new computer case?
No prob!

Most Mid-Tower to Full Tower size computer cases, will have a Support Plate that accommodates a Micro-ATX form factor motherboard, OR an ATX form factor motherboard.

Just look at the Support Plate mounting holes.
Ones for a Micro-ATX (uATX) motherboard, will have uATX next to them, or MATX, or mATX.

Ones for an ATX motherboard, will have ATX next to them.

However check the computer case manufacturer info to be sure.

[ The motherboard mounts to a Support Plate.
The Support Plate can be an integral part of the metal frame, of the computer case; or a separate metal plate that attaches to the computer case metal frame ]

Not getting any video from a msi 880gma-e55 integrated video motherboard


This may sound simple, but make sure the monitor is set to correct input. Many are auto detect, but you never really know.

You could also check BIOS for onboard video. Disable if you have an add-on video card. Enable if you don't

Reseat the video card if it an add-on.

Micro-ATX motherboard to fit your Dell would be difficult to find.
If you find a micro motherboard, check the motherboard mounting holes line up with the Dell's mountng plate.

My motherboard (an old one) has gone kaput!. It's an Asus P3V 4X. Can I buy a replacement which will fit into my existing casing? My current processor is an Intel Pentium 3.


Yes. That motherboard is a standard size called ATX. Any other ATX or micro-ATX motherboard will fit into your current case.

Yes i think you will be ok as i can see and your old motherboard is microatx but i strongly recommend you to change case because is not only about motherboard.You will need and better and new power supply and if you want to build a good system with air flow for not overheating your new cpu and other hardware i strongly recommend you to change and chassis!!You can find a "nice" case with $50-$70 bucks if you dont want to spend money on case,but you will need power supply for sure

Pc tower motherboard upgrade


you can put in any new micro-atx motherboard no problem. I can be 100% sure if the case is Atx full size- best way to check is to see how many pci expansion slots are available at the back of the case. Any Atx case can hold micro-atx mobo's but a micro atx case wont hold atx mobo.

MOTHERBOARDS THAT CAN FIT A ADVENT T9102 CASE


The Advnet case you have is a micro ATX (mATX) case. I would suggest that you purchase an inexpensive ATX size case. You'll have more room to work and the potential for better air flow for cooling.
