    I decided to upgrade my computer so I bought:
    QDI P2PE/800 Pro Pentium4 478pin DDr400 Motherboard (533FSB)
    Intel Celeron 2.0 Ghz 128K 178Pin 400FSB OEM Processor
    Dynatron Heavy Duty Haetsink & Fan w/ Thermal Paste
    512MB PC2700 333Mhz DDR &
    Dynex 300 Watt ATX12V Power Supply
    Well I put my antistatic wrist wrap on and put it all together. I checked all wire connections and was good to go. I turn on the power supply (the red light on the motherboard light up so I knew I has power) then I hit the power button, the green LED light flashed. and nothing happened. I know the connection are right I triple check. So any ideas??????

    Hi Solo

    "Nothing happens" No fans or noise at all?

    Many of the guys here would suggest that you remove the MOBO and components from the case and assemble them on a non-conductive surface. This will eliminate the possibility of a 'short' between the MOBO and Case, or any other component.

    Now I have never recommended this to anyone before...but I did this myself a few weeks ago and it helped me isolate a problem! Go figure :rolleyes:

    G'day, does that m/b require the second power connection? (the small square type for processor core supply)
    That is apart from the normal larger rectangular power plug.
    If it does and you don't have it coming from your power supply, you can get an adapter which connects to one of the normal power supply leads. It trapped me some time ago with an upgrade in an older case.
    Cheers, qldit
