ok its been about a month and many a thing have taken place. i RMA'd the motherboard (this took about 2.5 weeks) and the red light still didnt come on. that was after hooking up every peripheral in the case. so i took the motherboard and psu out, unhooked everything from the motherboard but the psu, and turned it on, no light. so i was pretty mad cuz this meant either the mobo wasnt OK as the rma meant, cuz they sent me back the same one i sent, or that the psu was broken or somesuch. so i go to compusa buy a antec neopower psu, hook just it up to the motherboard (which is naked sitting on an antistatic bag) turn it on. no light. what in gods name am i supposed to do now. please help.
