Hey everyone, I just built my computer that was made with help from you guys on this site. This is the build that I ended up with...
AMD A10-5700, Silverstone SST-PS07B - System Build - PCPartPicker
Here are some pictures of my unit
ImageShack Album - 17 images
Here is another thread where I'm being helped
Just built my computer... but it doesn't work! | IGN Boards
And this is my problem...
At first, every time I hit the power button the fans would spin for as long as I held the button down, then they would stop. I noticed there was one fan plug from the power supply that wasn't connected, when I plugged it in, the unit wouldn't turn on at all. The plug had four sockets coming from four wires on it. The two middle wires were black and the manual said that the top wire had to be black. So I pulled it out and plugged it in with the black wire on the top, and the top wire connected to nothing. When I turned the computer on it started running normally. But...
When I hit the power button on top of the computer to turn it on it works, but it doesn't let me turn the computer off. Once the computer is on the power button does nothing. I have to turn it off using the button on the power supply.
The DVD drive doesnt work. I have a SATA cable connected to the motherboard, and a cable from the power supply connected to it.
Although the lights and the fans turn on, the unit is obviously not completely working, because when I connect the dvi and VGA cables to my new screen it says "no dvi/vga connection detected."
Can anyone help me?
Edit-My case only came with three risers. So that's all I put in. Could that be the problem?
