Everything in my comp is hooked up good. Least i think. The motherboard receives power and has a red light on. But the computer wont turn on and start the fans up or anything.

What are some common fixes thx.

Could be anything and everything . Is your CPU seated properly ? Any bent pins ? RAM seated ok ? How many sticks ? If 2 or more remove one and reboot . Then try the other . SATA cable firmly connected both ends ? Have you formatted/reinstalled your OS ? SATA drivers may need to be loaded in that case . When did this occur and how ? PC shut down on you or blue screen ? Fail to boot from powering on ? The more info on the status of the machine prior to failure the more chance there is of narrowing down what's gone wrong ....

Everything is ok. CPU pins are good, ram is good, sata is good, everything is perfect. There is a red light on on the MB. Should it be green. MB in sig.

OK, I see some problems right off.

1 Running that system dual video cards in sli, 4400+ case lights, etc with a 400W pw supply is asking for problems.

2 Using an nforce4 board with a dual core cpu is again asking for problems. Even though nvidia claims the nforce4 supports dual core, it has problems. Take it from someone who has experienced this first hand.

3 Have your read and followed the troubleshooting guide at the top of the forum? If you follow the guide, you will find the cause of your problem
