I know that’s pretty out there, but i’m considering it a possibility because i don’t know else could be causing the problem on my system since it worked fine for so long. I’ll take a picture of my connections later this evening and try posting them to this site. In the meantime, I decided to order another mobo so that I could get up and running while waiting for the original to be repaired. Recently it just stopped working. Oddly, they state you should connect “PWR1” to the “auxiliary case power supply”. I had pretty much come to the conclusion that my mobo had a problem, so I went and got an RMA for it last week.

I don’t really have any other options to try. I’m curiouse if maybe since it was an AMD based system, if the PSU was special for the AMD mobo and processor could it have possibly shorted out the motherboard over the past month it was installed.
Has anyone ever seen or heard of anything resembling this? Joined Sep 27, Messages 2, 0. The manual states that you should connect both the pin power supply and the 4-pin supply. I’m hoping maybe someone on this forum can help me out. The fans spin up for about half a second, and that’s it. I would try putting it in the slots closest to the CPU first.
The power supply it’s running is off an HP i recently baught and gutted for my new system. Forums New posts Search forums.

Are there any other possibilities I should try? In the meantime, I decided to order another mobo so that I could get up and running while waiting for the original to be repaired. If so, vido I need to modify the fan connectors from my case? I’ll take a picture of my connections later this evening and try posting them to this site.

I’m think maybe I should move on to a different mobo, maybe another brand would work better? I had pretty much come to the conclusion that my mobo had a problem, so I went and got an RMA for it last nfroce4m-a.

Though I thought this was just to trigger the on singla to the mobo, which it does seem to do since the fideo spin up briefly.
So much for RTFM However, if I disconnect either the 4-pin power connector, or the 4-pin power connector that is part of the pin connector, the mobo will power up and remain powered up.

I guess it’s time to send this board back and try to get a replacement. It’s brand new, with pre-installed aluminum heatsinks on each one. I can’t seem to get customer support from the mobo mfg ECSand the wcs I got this board from is horrible about returning calls when I call in, they are always “on the phone with other customers”.
So therefore, one of the rails can possibly be dead since you have no monitor output. When that is rules out, it might be the PSU. Would having my various fans plugged into the wrong spots be causing problems? I know that’s pretty out there, but i’m considering it a possibility because i don’t know nofrce4m-a could be causing the problem on my system since it worked fine for so long.
A 4-pin “molex” connector arranged in a square pattern and a pin connector, which can actually be split into a pin and 4-pin connector. That’s where I have connected it right now.
