Okay, so I'm just going to make this post as I am doing some experimentation.
After the computer botoed fine with the 35watt plugged into the MB (two connnectors), and the vcard, I switched the three connectors with thr 500watt. So the 500watt PSU is plugged into the 20 pin on MB, the 4 pin on MB, and the 6800gt. --- IT boots, but it loses the cpu information, I go into the bios and load optimized defaults and it works fine. Next, I connect both my SATA Hard Drive, and the IDE drive.
Well it boots fine, and I go into the bios and it recognizes the IDE drive, and i think this is what is sopossed to happen.
(I still havn't heard the loud annoying beep, so im kinda scepticle...)
Next, I plug in the DVD+/- RW. Well it still boots, now it recognizes neither of the IDE Drives (HD, DRVRW). They are on the same cable, so I go to check jumper settings. I am not sure what they were before, but I did my research and set the HD (On slave position on cable) to master, and the DVDRW drive (On master position on cable) to Slave. And..It ends up reading them both, and gives me option to boot from cd, I dont press anything, and it looks to HD, where it find an old WinXP Home and starts to load, I don't let it and continue troubleshooting the PSU...
Next I connect my other DVD drive. It works and it reads it.
Now I will connect the older CD Rom drive. It also reads it and all IDE Devices are in the right configuration.
At this point, I have connected all of my IDE/SATA drives, video card, and MB, The only things left requiring power are the fans, and the fan situation I have is:
Two BLUE UV 80mm's in front
One BlueLED 80mm at top of case
One 120mm BlueLED fan in rear
One 80mm Blue UV fan on side, in clearsided window
The first fan I plug in is one of the 80mm's in front. It boots.
Then I plug in the other one in the front. NO!
The same thing happens as before, a millisecond of power runs through the system and i get the same errors as in the first post...
So I unplug the problem fan, and I'm able to plug every other fan in BUT that one.
Problem (Skip to here if you don't want to read)...
So I know that this one 80mm BlueUV fan is the problem here, Why would a fan be doing this, It is not connected to the MB, and i tried different psu connectors to it but same problem. I also tried switching the psu arrangment with other fans, same thing, so the problem with this enire thing is this one god damn fan. So I ask you...Why does this fan do this???
