    Hi , I exchanged my old motherboard and GPU to my dads pc but I doesnt want to boot. The on/off button wont respond. I tried 3 different power supplies but nothing happens but I found out that if I connect pin 16 (green) and black both ps fan and the CPU start spinning. But it just doesnt run with the on/off switch not even when I connect both pins from the switch using a screwdriver. Any ideas ?????

    Specs

    Asrock z68m/USB 3
    PS Be Quiet 300 watt
    GPU MSI Radeon HD 6670
    2 gig ram
    Intel CPU 3,2 ghz socket 1155
    SSD 120 gb

    All specs used to work together

    OK, no one [other than you] has any idea what hardware you are running. Post ALL of your exact system specs; include both systems.

    Did you by chance install this board in a big box case ie dell, hp, etc?
    Since you get no response from hitting the pw button, what happens if you short the pw switch pins on the board? Have you tried that?

    Since you have onchip video with that mb, pull out your video card. Connect the monitor to the onboard port on the motherboard. This assumes you have a processor that has onchip video. Not all intels do. Since we still do not know what processor you have, it is difficult to tell you if connecting to onboard will work.

    No, it is not the bios. More than likely a standoff is in the wrong place OR you failed to plug something in. You never answered; is the case you are using a dell, hp, or other name brand computer case?

    As I said, most likely you did not install a standoff in the correct position or forgot to plug something in. Did you check that standoffs were installed in the correct holes for the motherboard and no standoffs installed where there was no screw hole in the board?
