Default New built Computer wont boot

I put together ASUS P4800 SE Motherboard and the CPU is Intel P4 Processor. My computer will not boot at all. I did smell something burning (I hope I did not fry anything) I rechecked everything. I looked at the motherboad, but did not see any signs of burning marks. (My guess is lost hope!) I did try to turn the computer back on, but the motherboad just lights up and the cpu fan keeps spinning. No other sign of life.

A. I read the manual instructions carefully
B. Made sure the pins were correct
C. I know CPU and Motherboard are compatible with each other
D. Hard Drive pins are correct, but I do not think this is an issue

I will take it to my coworker who is a technician, but any suggestions.

Victor

How about your PSU??? Enough power???
Is better for u to list down your specs more details.
If with warranty, just take it back n change 4 another 1, save a lots of time.

Can U b more specific like Rating of PSU, name of the videocard etc.
I would first check to see whether my PSU has enough juice or not.
If I have any doubt on components like Hard Disk, RAM etc, Iwould try checking them on my friend's computer.

The Power Supply Case unit has 250w/300w switch. The manual states that if the manual is fully configured then use 300w if not then use 250w

Try a different motherboard, get one from a friend. Also I dont think that psu has enough power, get a higher quality unit, fortron 530w http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...104-968&depa=0

Thats why its spinning the fans and then nothing, the power requirement is too large, or the mobo is fried.

I don't think the video card is a problem. The computer will not boot at all. There is no sound, and no beeps at all. I have e-mailed the motherboard manufacture, and I am waiting for a reply from them. I do not think any one will be working since it is a holiday. I will wait.

its definitly your psu...

you need atleast 350.. 400 recommended.. 530 is overkill

check this link for calculations.

its not the video card, it would beep then, but its not, it can only be the mobo, cpu, or psu.
