    thanks for the help. . it didnt seem to help. I am getting power to the motherboard. the green light is on. I have unplugged and re-plugged everything making sure its tight. get the green power light.. hit the button. nothing. . I have checked the case hook ups to make sure there connected right and they where. I have even touched the 2 power pins with a flat head screw driver. . sense this can help that connection. but nothing, other then the power supply trying to click on. . thanks again for the help!

    I have the same problem, but mine has been working for 2 years. Then all of a sudden, the button doesn't work. I have a green light on the MB, but nothing happens.

The ATX power supply needs to have pin16(PS_On#) to be connected to COM for it to work. When you press the power switch on the front panel of the computer, you are essentially making this connection. Check that the cable from the power supply to the motherboard is making good connection. You can verify operation of the power supply by shorting Pin16 to pin17 on the powersupply output, with a paper clip. Pin16 is usually a green wire and 17 is black. Hope this helps. -Vish

How to hook up a Onkyo DV-CP500 5 DVD/CD to a Onkyo AV receiver HT-R500 and a Hitchi 43FDX15BV2G005104 HDTV?

From what I find on the internet, the Receiver and the DVD player do not have any HDMI connections. Therefore, I'm using the S-Video connections. The best way to hook these components up is the following.

DVD player - Use an S-Video Cable on the OUTPUT and connect this to the S-Video Input on the Reciever. Also, connect the two audiot OUTPUTS (red/white) on the DVD player to the RECIEVER's two audio INPUTS (red/white)

RECEIVER - Use an S-Video Cable and connect to the S-VIDEO MONITOR OUTPUT and this will connect to the TV's S-VIDEO.

Speakers will connect to the Left Right Front Speaker, Left Right Rear Speakers, and Center Channel. The sub woofer needs to be connected to the Sub woofer/PreOut terminal on the Receiver.

Did you double check ALL of the connections for power on the board? Check and see if your memory is one of the approved modules from the website for gigabyte. Sometimes an unapproved ram will cause a board not to boot. Also check and see if you have seated the cpu correctly.

There is not enough information here to help you. Can you be more descriptive of what you are or not seeing? some information about what hardware you have and how you have it configured would also assist in giving you a better answer. If you do not have enough experience to know hat you have done wrong you may need a pseudo-expert to help you.

Logitech Pure-Fi Anywhere Portable Speakers for Apple iPod . It keeps shutting off after a few minutes. It's plugged into a wall outlet.

Many have reported the same issue, reset the pure-fi with the reset switch (on bottom) while it is turned on, then put your iphone/ipod at 75+ % of volume before/while playing.
