    Hello all

    I am having problems with my new computer that I am putting together, first let me list the parts

    Motherboard : P5GDC-V Deluxe


    Memory : Corsair 512 xms2 single stick pc5400


    HD: Hitachi Deskstar IDE 250 GB


    Case: Antec Powerplus server case


    PSU: Aspire 500w ATX powersupply

    Web site is totally useless

    CPU: Intel p4 550 3.4 ghz with 800 mhz fsb Prescott


    Not running video until decent PCI express card comes out, motherboard comes with on board video.

    HERE is the problem

    When I installed everything, and trust me I installed it correctly and double checked everything (and I am very static sensitive). Nothing happened, I didn’t get a bios on the screen and everything that was plugged into a IDE cable was unresponsive. I have taken all the other items and plugged them into other computers to make sure they are working correctly and they are. When items are powered by the PSU but not plugged into the IDE they are responsive, i.e. CD rom drives open and close and hard drive revs up. There are no beeps from the mother board, and yes the speaker cable is plugged in correctly. The green led on the motherboard lights up and the CPU fan is receiving power. I also get no power to the keyboard, it’s back lit so you know when it’s getting juice. Any suggestions would be appreciated, but I think I have a DOA motherboard that I need to RMA, thank god I bought it from newegg.com. Oh, I reset the bios too. Thanks for any help you can offer.

    On the newest MOBOS isn't there a 2nd power connector? Not having a leading edge system, I only know what I hear/read. If yes, is that secondary connector plugged in?

    First Name:
    Its best to set up a new build outside of the case on an antistatic surface such as the motherboard box. Then connect only the powersupply, the CPU with Fan, one stick of RAM, and the Video and monitor. Do not connect any drives at all and do plug in PCI cards or connect any external devices usch as a keyboard. You should also connect the speaker if possible, and optionally connect only the power switch. You can use a screwdriver to short the two power switch pins for a second to start the boot.

    Outside the case its easier to check the jumpers, such as the Clear CMOS jumper, and it rules out a short. It also rules out a serious incompatiblity between additional components.
