    I have a computer that I am putting together and when I put in one power supply the cpu fan turns on by itself but no bios beep and no display on the monitor, when i put another power supply in and push the power button nothing happens, the power switch cable is in the right spot. I have the motherboard out of the case with just the cpu/ram/power supply hooked up to it, the mobo is lying on the static sheet so there is no possibility of it grounding out. I dont know what the hell is wrong. The mobo is a chaintech 7KJD, does anyone know if there is a special jumper that is protecting the CMOS that I am not seeing?

    Firsly, "static sheets" can be very conductive. Thats how they equalise/dissipate static.

    They are NOT an insulator in many cases!

    I am making a cheap computer for some guy, and I put it together. I wouldnt post, the fans would go Drives would spin, but a blank screen. Now I can boot and post and get to XP, but if I shut it down, i have to wait for at least 15mins before it will boot correctly. Otherwise it just boots, and same thing occurs, blank screen, drives spin and all that stuff. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
