Computer will not boot

Building a new machine with this motherboard and a 3.2 dual core processor. Cooling fans come on when power is turned on but none of the IDE drives will power up unless I unplug the ide cables (new cables). All drives will then power up.

Never boot when start up


That's because you have a Power Supply with a weak voltage power rail

How do I know this?

1) IF all of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 WATT of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what processor it is.

Your motherboard?

http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/desktops/desktop-board-dh61ww-classic-brief.html

With the LGA 1155 processor socket, and the Intel H61 Express chipset, it can support Intel Core i5, and Core i7 processors.
(That use an LGA1155 processor socket)

Information on the Intel H61 Express chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_i_Series_chipsets

List of Intel Core i5 processors, that use the LGA1155 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors#.22Sandy_Bridge.22_.28dual-core.2C_32_nm.29

95 Watts maximum (TDP) Also scroll down.

List of Intel Core i7 processors, that use the LGA1155 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i7_microprocessors#Sandy_Bridge_microarchitecture

95 Watts M-A-X-I-M-U-M. (TDP = Thermal Design Point) Also scroll down.

What is happening?
Primer;
You press the Power On button. This plastic button in turn, presses against the Power On switch. A Momentary Contact Switch.

The brief closing of the Power On switch, closes the Soft Power On circuit, in the Power Supply.
The Power Supply turns on.

The first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset. The BIOS program starts.

BIOS looks to see what devices are connected, does a Ram Memory count, TURNS the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
(Windows XP, and Windows 7, are two examples of an O/S)

When BIOS goes to turn the Processor on, the Power Supply 'falls flat on it's face'.

Has to enough power to light a few little LED lights, and maybe spin a fan, or two, but NOT enough power for the Processor.

The monitor is stating No Signal, because there is no video signal coming from the computer. This is because the computer is not working, because of that bad Power Supply.

[Weak voltage power rail ]

Make sure the BIOS settings are correct for the microproc and also make sure the motherboard supports a dual core processor.

Will not boot up with a dual core


Did you know that you would need to have a more powerful power supply?
Dual core cpu's need a minimum of 600 watt power supply.

The system fails to boot up after a new power supply was added


There should also be a brand - the nVidia just relates to the chipset that the board uses, but its OK, lets check the wiring first.  If we still have trouble I'll get you to double check for the brand name.
Lets just check that you have the following plugs in place:
  1. The 24 pin plug from the PSU (blue) to your motherboard - this powers the board itself.
  2. A 4 pin 12v P4 connector plugs into the motherboard (near the CPU).  This is the CPU power.  It runs from the 8pin blue socket on the PSU.  Make sure that the end plugging into the motherboard is only 4 pin.
  3. No power cables required to run the 8600GT so the red sockets on the PSU are empty.
  4. Power cables going to all your peripherals (hard drives and CDroms).  These run from the black sockets on the PSU.
Does your current setup match that?

Nice system, what kind of cooling do you have in there? How many fans etc...

Motherboard detects nothing


anniegms, I had the same problem with a new Asus board running a Dual Core Duo Quad processor. The boards BIOS was not updated to handle the Dual Core Duo yet. I had to switch processors to a P4. Use a different PC to make a BIOS update disk. Update the BIOS and switch processors back. But I had all the same symptoms of yours. However I did/do have a PCI-E XFX Fatality (Nvida) based graphics card. I would check or swap processors, it sounds like the board is waking up but not the processor. Just my thoughts.... PCdok

Mach speed motherboard problem


I had the same problem once. I took it to CompUSA to have them diagnose the problem, and they said I fried the motherboard or CPU. The fans turn on just because your power supply is on.
