    Exclamation Need help badly. Have to get this going

    Okay heres my story, I got an
    Asus D5W DH Deluxe,
    1gb x 2 Kingston 533
    Intel E6600 Duo core 2.4
    EVga E-PCI card
    500W PSU

    When I power this up The Green light for the case stay lit for half a second and turns off if I leave the four pin PSU connector on it. (one is 4 pin, the other 24 pin) If I remove the Four pin connector the System light powers up all fans remain spinning but the system will not POST (bring to bios settings)

    Is the power supply strong enough? is it the CPU? The Motherboard?

    Is your cpu fan seated properly? Also try taking your ram out and trying one stick at a time. Sometimes its as simple as that hope you get it sorted. Is your system new and is it a self build?

    not posting but staying powered up when you do not use the 4-pin connector is probably normal behavior, but when you do connect it and the PC powers off, that certainly points to being a PSU issue, but it really could be anything at this stage.

    What EVGA card do you have?
    Do you have a more basic video card there you can test?
    What model is your 500W PSU?

    i'd suggest that if you have an additional pci-e connector, try using that one instead. with dual 12V rails becoming the norm now, it can be easy to overload one of the rails by putting too many power hungry componants on it.

    and it could also be a problem with settings, particulary the RAM, whereby the bios by default is setting the memory clock/timings too high and with too little voltage, though to encounter a power down for this scenario would be unusual. I'd suggest clearing the cmos and using only 1 stick of memory in every slot, you may get lucky.

    also make sure the cpu cooler is making proper contact, a remount would be a good idea if you can manage it.

    if none of this works, let us know, perhaps you'll encounter more clues as to what the problem may be.

    The light cames on that's a good news, it's mean some body is home. It's not the MOBO. It's the CPU!

    Removed 4 pin connector, you mean the one for the CPU?
    PLUG IT BACK IN (all the power connectors) AND RE-SEAT THE CPU PROPERLY (hopefully you didn't damage the pins at the first installed).

    If your video card have a PCI-E connection then plug it in. You won't even get any power on if the is card defected, the MOBO will shut it down.

    Good luck and let us know the results.

    I've been self building since 486s, never had this problem before.
    it's very strange,


    I've tried moving the memory around from slot to slot. no dice.
    tried removing the Video card all together. (figured if it's not in there it will still make the beeping nosie of a hardware error.) No good.

    When I say the 4 pin connection I mean the one by the processor,
    sometimes it's 8 pin, I believe it's the ATX connection. I even checked the Bios Rev. it's 1602 the asus site said it was supported back in 1102

    The PSU was a cheapo model at frys, It was marked down. I've also cleared the CMOS. I was told by someone to remove the battery move the jumpers, try to power the mother board with the jumpers at 2-3 It shouldn't power but leave it off to let all of the juice out of the MOBO.
    then put it back on 20 minutes later. should I take this PSU back to Frys and get a 600w-700w ?

    Just notice, when the the Four pin ATX wire is not plugged in and the lights DO stay on but do not post the fan for the PSU itself does NOT spin.
