I've just built a system using a gigabyte GA-K8NSC-939 motherboard & an AMD X2 3000+ chip (socket 939)

when i turn it on, there are no lights or LED's on the motherboard, & the the CPU- & chassis- fans just spin periodically

ie:- they both spin for a second, then cut out, spin for a second, then cut out (& so on)

i've swapped PSU's three times. 2 of the times using firstly a 700W thermaltake PSU that powers a much bigger Athlon X2 6000+ system, & also a brand new OCZ 600W stealthstream

(both of which produce the same stop-start-fan-spinning behaviour)

i've swapped the RAM for another stick of DDR that works in another system

i've done the jumpers on the CMOS

so all i can think is, it's either the CPU or the motherboard

not knowing whether the GA-K8NSC-939 motherboard is supposed to illuminate in some way to indicate its getting power from the PSU, i can't pinpoint the dud component

any help much appreciated

I am not for sure either. It does sound like a the motherboard however. I don't suppose you happen to have another processor that will fit?
