This is really poor practice and an excellent way to destroy a motherboard.
You should always have the board connectors plugged in before turning on the power supply, otherwise you may be blowing ICs left and right.
It's perfectly OK to plug the supply into the wall or turn on its power switch with the board connectors in place.
Also, nearly all modern boards have a set of pins that go to the front panel 'power' switch which does not switch AC but sends a logic signal to the power supply to turn the rest of the voltages on.
Those pins have a 5V potential on them that is typically grounded to tell the supply to turn on.
If you're lucky, you still have an undamaged motherboard.
did you instal the driver for it? if not download from here http://www.nodevice.com/driver/company/Elitegroup/Motherboard/page11.html instal it and check if is working. if you have instal the driver then if everything on the board is working fine if some piece is malfunction then it must be changed.
The very first thing you need to do is unplug all drives inc power.
Now remove as many add in cards as you can without compromising the system.
Try to boot at that point.
If it boots re-connect each piece of hardware one at a time until you find one that causes a problem.
Double check that item for any issues and replaces if needed.
If you have had the fan off the cpu for any reason then you should have cleaned both the cooler fan underside and the top of the CPU and put fresh thermal grease made for that purpose on there. DO NOT use too much as that is almost as bad as too little.
Is the fan the correct type eg motherboard takes 3 pin and fan is 4 pin ?
Make sure it is connected to the CPU FAN pins on the board and not system fan.
If you have another computer and the fan can be removed from the cooler itself you could plug it into the system fan port of another computer to try it out.
under no circumstances should you run a system without the CPU cooler running as it could cause irreparable damage to the CPU
If you're pretty sure its your comm ports, boot up into your bios setup screen. (Tap Del while booting) Then go to the onboard devices page or any page that lists your com ports and change the property value to disabled.
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
Either motherboard, ram module or if no power at all sounds more like a power supply. If the computer has on board video you will need the ram to get any video. But with it removed the board should still beep if the case speaker is connected to the board. Have seen a lot of these less expensive motherboards fail. If there is no power up at all or lights coming on on the case I would think it is a power supply problem. Happens all the time and quite easy to repair. Just put on a new power supply.
