First PC Build - DONE but won't turn on

10 posts in this topic

I just "finished" building my first PC with the help of a couple TriBot members.

 

However, it won't turn on.

 

I've made sure the PSU is fully clipped into the motherboard, aswell as making sure the 8PIN is clipped in fully.

 

I have quite a few cables from the PSU that aren't plugged in anywhere such as the PCI and a couple others, but I don't know if that's the issue or not, as I can't find anywhere to plug them in.

 

I believe the front panel cords are plugged in the right spot aswell.

 

Anyother ideas of why it won't turn on?

Tested power supply buy jumping the green/black wire? If that tests fine, remove motherboard from case and place it on a box and jump the power button headers on the motherboard. If it turns on then, it's shorting out in the case. Did you use the stand offs if this is the case?

Have you plugged in these things from the case to the motherboard correctly? Check the motherboard AND case manual to see the proper setup. You probably missed something minor. 

 

Try taking a picture of the cables that aren't plugged in yet.

Do your components get power? (are the fans spinning?)

 

No. @TechnologyZ

@Duhstin Sorry, what do you mean "jumping the green/black wire"? 

 

I didn't use the standoffs, perhaps this could be the problem. But I think my case has built in raised parts? Because I couldn't figure out how to install the standoffs correctly without raising the MOBO too high.

Yes, they're in the correct spot I believe.

 

I'll take a picture when I can, thanks!

@Wub If you have the 24 pin power connector on the MOBO, and the 8 (or 4) pin CPU power connector on the mobo and it is not getting any power (fans spinning, beeping, etc) then your PSU is either DOA or you have the inputs from your PC case incorrectly plugged into your Mobo
