So I bought a barebone kit from Tigerdirect. It came with a 2.66 GHZ Pentium D processor, 1 GB DDR2 RAM, some case, and a powerup 450 watt power supply. I bought all the other necessary stuff to build it. The installation was fine, unitl I tried to turn the power on. I got nothin.....I've been stuck with the problem for about 3 hours now and nothing good has really developed yet.
I think I have all the correct plugs for the front panel buttons (such as power, reset, LEDs, etc), but the damn thing doesn't turn on at all. When I plug in the power the light on the Mobo turns on along with the Ethernet port light. But when I turn it on, I get nothing.
So is this a screwed up power supply (The one I have has some bad reviews....supposedly only about half of them work right) or am I just missing something here (like on the front panel?). I might try a different power supply tomorrow, if not I'll take this **** to Tigerdirect and have them take a look at it. But if any of you can save me some time, I got points waiting for you.
