    I am installing a Intel D845GRG into a 7121 Acer Aspire case. Everything fits OK until I try to turn it on and nothing happens. I got a front panel schematic from the intel site and followed it to the end but still no reaction. Can anyone give me any help on this one. I am still checking Intel sites and Acer sites for help. The support link on the Intel only generated automated responses. I have yet to here from a real intel tech. Below is a link to the schematics for the front panel connectors.

    Is this a tested case and Power Supply? Try reversing the leads of the front panel connectors.

    Hard to use a deeper voice while typing...sorry I jest...the connector for your power switch...pull it out, turn it over, plug it back in...make sure yoy have power switch turned off while doing this...also recheck all of your connections.

    lol:D

    I have tried this and still nothing. I spoke with my older brother (System Implimentation) and he is going to check the circuit for me this weekend. But if I can find the problem before it will be so helpful.

    I can feel the speed of the Pentium 4 now. HHMMMMM can you feel it? CAN YOU FEEL IT? Yeah, I thought you could.

    Oh I'm sorry i got a little excited. that happens when you've been on a Pent2 for a while. anxiety builds up from anticipation.

    Since the power switch for this MB is just a set of N/O contacts, what does this accomplish?

    This is from intel's automated response. the power switch on the case need to have a momentary contact time of 50 milliseconds or more to power up.

    so I went out and got a new case and sure enough it started. YAAAAHOOOOOO!!!!!
