Power button.........and nothing !
Just got done building my new system, specs are:
Antec P180B Case
EVGA 680i SLI mobo
Intel E6700 Core 2 Duo cpu
EVGA 8800 GTS gpu
2 GB Corsair XMS 4-4-4-12 DDR2 800 RAM
150GB WD Raptor 10,000 rpm HD
500GB Seagate 7200.10 7,200 rpm HD
Samsung 18x DVD / 52x CD-R combo drive w/lightscribe
52 in 1 (ROFL) media card reader
BFG 1,000w PSU
Windows Vista Ultimate (32 bit)
19'' Samsung widescreen Syncmaster
This is a good baseline system and once the price of the 8800 GTX lowers a bit i am going to trade up my 8800GTS through EVGAs trade up program for a 8800 GTX and purchase another 8800 GTX to run them in SLI. I also plan to purchase an additional 2GB of Corsair XMS as well as another 500GB HD or two. I feel that this system will take me well into the future especially since my board can seat an Intel Kentsfield. One slight problem though.......
Finally got my Raptor drive and my copy of Vista from UPS yesterday installed the HD, connected the monitor, and prepared for ignition. I hit the power button and.......NOTHING. I checked the power supply switch and it was in the off postion, "AHA!" how dumb i felt, i flipped it on and prepared for ignition again. I flipped the switch a second time and.......NOTHING.
**** ! Now i am ticked, i have no fan spin, no 3 beeps of doom, no nothing. I double checked my ATX 24pin connection and my ATX 12volt connection and they are both good. I am reconnecting the front panel headers after lunch to make sure the power button is connected right, but i am a very careful person and i am sure that it was connected correctly to begin with.
Basically i need some ideas as to what could be wrong from experienced system builders. My current theory is either the power button connection or the power supply is borked because i am getting NO spin, NO beeps, etc. Im double checking all of my connections but i took 8 hours to do it right the first time. I just find it hard to believe that a $250 PSU would be a DOA on delivery, but then again stranger things have happend.
ANY input would be appreciated, thanks.
