Question about ASUS CROSSHAIR Motherboard
I just put together my first computer. It took me 2 days of cursing and headscratching to put it together. So the problem is when I turn it on, nothing happens except the motherboard lcd just says cpu init. The processor fan doesn't even turn on. I tried the stock processor fan and a thermaltake v1. Neither of them turn on. I'm pretty sure I had them plugged into the right fan power connector. The Connector is the only 4 pin connector in the area that the diagram says it's in. The monitor (Samsung SyncMaster) just says check signal cable. My step uncle triple checked that everything was connected properly on the intial install. He took off when I was putting in the sound and graphic cards. It's a Asus Crosshair motherboard with a dinky sempron processor that I had to get the thing running so I could update the bios and put in a quadcore. I bought the motherboard last year before amds' quads came out incase you were wondering why I bought that board in the first place. The PS is a thermaltake 700watt. Four gigs of Corsair Dominator 1066. Soundblaster X-FI Elite Pro. Nvida 9800 GTX2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Make sure that your power switch is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard. The LED you see lit may be the stand-by power indicator saying it has power and is waiting for the signal from the power switch.
