Question about Biostar K8M800 Micro AM2 Motherboard
I just purchased this mobo and all the parts needed for a new comp. from newegg.com but I cant get this guy to work. Whenever I turn the computer on it powers up for a few second then turns itself off. I thought I jacked up the heatsink instillation so I reseated that but the problem persisted. After that I took out everything bit by bit to find the problem and lone behold I have it. Whenever the ATX powercord is plugged in, the computer will turn off for a few seconds. If I unplug the ATX powercord it will start up fine but I dont get video, ect ect ect. Any ideas on what is causing this? The case itself is a new one with a 450 watt power supply and Im using a Athlon 64 X2 3600. Any ideas on what might be causing this? thanks!
It's suppose to do that. These motherboards are new generation. After everything is ready to go, you plug the power cord to the wall and pc. The computer power supply fan spins for about 3 seconds or so and maybe a few lights blink. This is normal. Its kind of a self diagnostic telling itself (I'm ok, you can power me on now). Did I answer your guestion? If not, let me know.
