Computer will make a noise, then do nothing.

  1. My friend (who doesn't have time to post this, but will reply) has a dilemma.

    He has his motherboard set up in his case and all the jumpers plugged in.

    Now, when he turns on the power supply and presses the "Power" switch, his PS makes a wierd buzzing noise then nothing happens.

    I have the same case with the same power supply, and mine turns on just fine.

    I told him it was the power supply, but maybe one of you had this problem before. :)

    If you've got identical systems, have you compared the two to see what he's done differently than you?

    It could be something as simple as a Jumper in the wrong position...

    The buzzing in the PSU might just be the fan, but could also, as you said, be a fault...

    He claims he double checked everything :D And no, he has a different motherboard than I. He has a Shuttle AB60N and I have an ASUS P4P800-Deluxe

    Ah, well was worth asking...

    Could you please list his specs so we'll be able to see if there is anything in them that could be problem?
