Help! i have just installed my Soltek 75DRV m/b into a b/n lcd case -gorgeous :) - and guess what...i cannot get any power :( i have tried

1. checking the external power cable and power sources
2. checking all internal power cables are secure (and the right way round)
3 . checking the CPU and RAM are secure

i am in the processs of checking that the jumper setting are correct by unpugging them all (HDD, power LED, Reset, etc...) and 'shorting the pins' - as i have been advised.

i was also wondering if anyone else had any feedback they could offer me in my time of darkness

There could be a short between the motherboard and case. it might be advisable to pull the motherbaord out of the case and set it up on an antistatic surface. Then only connect the powersupply, CPU with fan, one stick of RAM and the video card. This is enough to get the computer to turn on.

The jumpers mentioned are not the cables from the front of the case. they are little plastic caps that sit over two pins. Make sure the Clear CMOS jumper is in the normal and not clear position and that any Front Side Bus(FSB) jumpers are set right fot the CPU - refer to the motherboard manual for postitions of jumpers.

Are all parts new?
