Oh my god I am freaking out!!
Everything was fine, running just how it should. Then yesterday my new heatsink came (TT Big Typhoon). It is a big fatty so I had to take my MOBO out.
So I unplugged and removed EVERYTHING. Before doing that I reset my bios to its defaults. I installed my new heatsink and then re-installed everything. I even used good cord management so that I would have good airflow by putting cords behind my MOBO and pushing all extra cords into drive bays etc.
I finished and plugged it in. The little light on my MOBO was on how it normally is so I thought all was well and pressed the power button built into the MOBO................
And I got absolutely nothing.
I tried the power button built into the case and also got absolutely nothing
I am not that great with computer hardware so I am praying my *** off that I am simply missing something that should be fairly obvious. Please help me!! Nothing turns on at all asthough its not even plugged into the wall. The only thing that shows any life is 1 small light on my MOBO. Not even my diagnostic LEDs will turn on.
So I started goin nutz unplugging and replugging stuff, I totally screwed my nice new cord management and pulled stuff out incase it was being squished by my MOBO. I just don't know what to do, nothing seems to work.
Please give me some suggestions, I am at work and will have to write down suggestions because I am not computerless at home
Could I have tightend the heatsink on too tight? Would that cause this stuff? Do I need to reset something on the Powersupply or Computer?
HELP ME!!!!!! I will love u forever if you get my computer working.
