I took my computer completely apart to clean/ add a new dvd drive to it. I put it back together and now am not getting any power to it. No lights, no fans, nothing.


My questions i basically.....

Might be some derp ass reason. Is the I/O switch in the right position? Cable to power on switch plugged in? PSU cables in the correct place? Try booting without the new DVD drive. Try booting only with drive that has OS.

Love how the resident tough guy is happy to talk trash on an internet forum but back pedals as soon as he is called out. Typical coward. No doubt he'll respond to this with excessive bravado in order to restore his rightful place as a fully fledged internet badass.

New discovery, my speakers are getting power, and the tiny little light next to the Ethernet is on.

I think i may have wired the front panel connectors wrong......so there probably isn't anything you guys can tell me to fix it. Sucks because the first time i put it together i got it right. Now i have no idea how it was supposed to look.

I'm fairly confident the connectors are all in the correct place.

I got power once. But then nothing would display on the screen.

Now i'm not getting power again. I'm probably ganna be up all night on this one.

the i/o switch is in the correct place. I'll check the cable to power switch, if i don't mention it again just assume i have it plugged in. PSU cables are in the right places.

I'll try taking out the dvd drive.

Disconnect everything that isn't necessary for an initial boot (ie, harddrives, optical drives, expansion cards, all RAM except 1 stick)
Connect only the power-on switch on the front panel
Basically, get the system to the most basic setup to test startup with

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Thank you for your help everyone.

I am a retard.

I managed to miss the plug giving power to the motherboard for 3 hours. Time to reconsider my major, lolz.

Either that, OR spend more time with computer hardware, familiarising yourself with the different connectors - to the point you know exactly what to look for (ie. the process of trouble shooting non-booting systems) icon_smile.gif

So you missed the big fat ATX power chord? The thickest and widest of cords? I might be wrong that the ATX is for power.. I've only ONCE wired a motherboard to a PSU.
