I recently purchased a crappy MSI P31 Neo (as my old Gigabyte motherboard went out because of me putting my processor in crooked) and I'm having some issues.

The P31 Neo handbook says to make sure the voltage of the power supply is adjusted properly to 110/220V. I'm using, however, a power supply with 115/230V. Could this be the issue?

All components were tested and work properly, even the power supply, using a different motherboard.

When I press the power button, the power supply light flashes, the fans spin a hair, and nothing else happens. If I hold the power button down for a few seconds, let go, and press it again, the same thing happens again.

I've had two heated debates with the guy who sold me this motherboard and he claims he's tested it and it works fine, yet I'm not able to get it working. I've been building computers for many years and this is the first I've come across this issue.

I'm thinking my power supply is putting out too much juice for the MB to handle, but I'm probably wrong.

Any input would be helpful.

Thanks in advanced.

Some power supply selector switches are just marked differently. One marked 115/230v will work just the same as one marked 110/220v.
