Question about Systemax Venture PC Desktop
I have a brand new Systemax PC with a 500W Power Supply. I swapped out the 2G's of memory for 4 and booted the machine up. The LED power siwtch lights up on the mother board and I was able to turn the power on in front. The fan spins and the computer seems to be on (No O/S installed). When I lifted it up on its side the machine turned off but the LED light remained on. Everything is connected and I can turn the power supply on and off but the button on the front of the machine is not turning the computer on. When I click it, the fan makes a noise like its getting ready to spin and then stops. I am not sure what to do next. Please help.
When you say "the fan makes a noise like its getting ready to spin", which fan...power supply's or cpu? if you answer power supply, then the POWER OK signal is not returning to power supply and it then quickly shuts down to prevent further damage. double check a firm connection to mother board. If you answer CPU, then it becomes far more complicated. Try re-seating the memory chips.
