So i was excited today cause i just got my new stuff for an upgrade, a GigaByte GA-K8NF-9, a new athlon 64 3500+, and a radeon 700x, but after installation, im getting no power, i checked over my front panel 100000 times and power still not working, then i tried my old board and it wont fire either. Im wondering if my Power Supply could be the problem, board fried?, 2700 not work on that board? or power button just not working.. i been working on this all day and i still cant get my computer to work. Ty for the help and hopefully in the future ill be able to help others on these boards.

Yes, a ps could cause you a problem, however I would try for a post outside of the case. More likely you have a problem with mounting the board in the case.

Pull the board from the case and place it on the box it came in. Do not use the anti-static bag since the outside can conduct electricity. Install your video card, and ram. Make sure your hsf is connected to the correct fan header. Connect your monitor. Connect your ps.

Now use a small screwdriver to short across the power switch pins on the board. If it posts now, you have a mounting problem. Examine your mounting VERY carefully before installing. After you install the board, again post with just the same parts as you had outside the case. This validates your mounting. Now add hd, cd drives, etc.

If it does not post outside of the case, you will need to swap parts with known good units ie processor, mb, ps, and ram.

alot could happen when moving parts around but all i could think of are these:
a. remove board from case and set on non-static surface.
b. double check connections.
c. double check cpu if seated properly, not by just looking but by removing and inspecting for bent or broken pins.
d. reseat your ram/s.
e. check if power supply has an off/on switch and see if it is set to on.
f. double check your work, again.
if still not firing short the pins where the off/on switch (on the motherboard) with a screw driver. GOOD LUCK.
