Question about Intel Motherboard
Thanks for the response. First hint, I have no video signal at the monitor. (Possibly blown ATI Rage 128 card?). But I also have no power light on the front of the machine, or any activity on the hard drive light. I have tested both hard drives in another machine, and they are both, thankfully, fine. DVD drives are still searching, and I get 12 volts on the hard drive power lines, so I'm guessing the power supply is OK. Can't test the motherboard power leads 'cos I can't turn on the power supply with it un-attached - I don't think I can anyway.
I would assume you have double checked all the connections to the motherboard from the power supply, and all other wire connections as well.
How many watts is the power supply? Perhaps there is too much for it to handle?
Try connecting only the HDD and the motherboard/cpu/fan and graphics card and see if it boots up, If it does, your PSU is being overworked.
I will continue to think up some more things...
