There are a number of issues that may be causing your problem.

1. Be certain that the power connection is properly installed; there are usually two connections not one that go from the power supply to the motherboard.

2. Be certain that there is no metal on metal contact between the motherboard and the case. Most modern cases include nylon snap-fit spacers that hold the motherboard to the case but also use brass spacers with screws. There should be red paper gaskets included in the parts bag - place these between the motherboard and the screw and be certain that the base ring (a silver metal ring that is not connected to circuits on the underside of the board) is cleanly centered.

3. Finally there are often switch settings and/or tab jumpers that must be set to declare the CPU type, voltage and speed. Be certain that these are set correctly or the board will not power up.


It is difficult to provide any further tips due to the limited information provided and more information may help.

I built a computer for my aunt using an Intel motherboard, Intel processor, 2 x 500MByte DDR3 RAM in a Blue Ninja case purchased from Tiger Direct. The computer worked well for more than two years then...

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

P4i65G - brand new want start.

Try getting a slower cpu, I have a 3.0Ghz P4 with 512mb of ram and it works great, I emailed them about upgrading ram and they said: "Upgrading the memory would not affect the Video card, unless the memory is not compatible with the motherboard, then the computer might not turn on at all."
