  1. Hi,

    I recently built a new computer, and everything was working perfectly fine. I shut the computer down properly and then the next day I tried to turn the computer back on and it did not turn on. I checked all the connections, and made sure all the connections were connected on the motherboard....Right now I am running out of ideas...please help!

    Specs:
    AMD Athlon FX-60
    Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro-SLI Motherboard
    2 gig DDR
    512mb GeForce 7900 GTX
    120 gig Maxtor

    Thanks.

    Unplug the computer and strip off all the components except the CPU. plug it in and power up. you should get beeps. continue the process adding components until you can boot or you find that a piece of hardware is what is causing the problem.
