Question about Asrock K7VM3 Motherboard
Katstu, Are any fans, hard drive or LEDs coming on at all, even briefly? If nothing try the following: -Check each screw, card, connector and component you installed to make sure nothings being shorted out or is improperly connected. Common occurrences are screws touching capacitor or other component leads. -Check the power connectors to make sure everything is connected correctly and that all the contacts are still mounted in the plastic connector correctly. -Check the output on your power supply and verify it?s rated for your motherboard. -Check the 110/220 voltage slide switch to ensure its on 110 (US). If the power supply has a rocker on/off switch make sure its in the on (1) position. -Make sure the motherboard is correctly grounded to the chassis per your instructions. Typically the mounting screws touch a grounding plane on the motherboard and in turn ground that to the chassis. If your using plastic mounting studs that might be a problem. -Verify the computer case power switch is working correctly. -Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove and add in cards (except primary video card), remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. If you get this far your processor or motherboard may be defective, it happens on occasion. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
