Make sure the wide 24-pin connector cable is firmly plugged into the motherboard. Then short the Power pins on the motherboard with an insulated flat-bladed screwdriver. If the computer powers up then your fron panel power switch needs replacing.

Do not use washers unless mobo manual says to use them. Most mobos require electrical ground contact through the seating screws.

This is a typically problem when you don't have the motherboard proerly seated. Some part of the board must be touching the metal contacts when you screw down the board to the case which causes a short. Try to reseat the motherboard and also make sure you're using washers in between where you screw down the motherboard to the case. That should fix your issue (Unless there's something wrong with the motherboard all-together).

GA-F2A78M-D3H (rev. 3.0)or rev. 4.0????? rev is on bottom left of mobo, normal tower case. no case told
the PSU is called ATX and all work here 500 to 750watts
24 pin power is normal
but CPU power uses 8 pin power plug PSU.marked ATX12v
psu lacking 8 pin, can use 4 to 8 adpater.

if using GPU card then it must connect to the monitor
the BIOS screen must work or the PC is dead or GPU card is dead.
strip the PC down ,any thing in the PC shorted will make PC dead.
if strip down tests fail the PSU may be bad is its fan dead too?

Won't power on is there a fuse

Hi, have you installed everything, I know its the obvious thing but I have bult hundreds of PCs and its always the smallest thing that catches you out!. Go back and double check your connections, even removing every component and starting again is a good idea sometimes. Good luck. (there is no fuse)

Dell Asus M2N61-AX MB front panel connector Nix ATX Gaming case

I assume you mean the HDD,reset,on switch etc where they plug onto the mobo.

Most mobos are labelled on the board but you will need good eyesight to read. They are labelled HDD, RESET, SPEAKER etc.

If not simply look up mobo manual from vendors site. You will need the DELL serial / part number from the old unit though.

Ok! I have an ak32 shuttle mother board I'm wanting to upgrade. Over the years I've added newer graffics, audio, extra usb ports,and earthnet card. I built the pc in 2002. I had a cooling fan recently go...

the case isnt amd athlon 2100 xp, thats the processor, the case is either a atx or micro atx case, so refer back to the case and find out if it is a atx case or a micro atx case, then find a micro atx or atx motherboard so you dont have to replace all of your components

Computer can't boost up

There are a host of things that could cause this. The first thing to check is to mak sure you have the proper memory setup for your motherboard. Often these days you need to install memory in pairs for the board to boot. Refer to your motherboard manual and make sure the memory you have installed is right fro your board and that you have it installed in the right slots. If you do and it still doesn't work, please reply with your motherboard, CPU and memory specifications so I can look into this further.
