  1. Hello, I got a new case today I took the motherboard out of the old one and put in the new one and the power supply I got with the case wouldn't work So I connected the old one and the CPU fan exhaust fan and PSU fan spin for a second than just stop and the Green Light on the mother board lights up for a second with the fans than it all just stops dead and I take the power cord out and put back in it does the exzact things (CPU fan exhaust fan and PSU fan spin for a second than just stop and the Green Light on the mother board lights up for a second)

    Did you connect all the wires correctly? Including the power button? How about any extra power connectors?

    Are you sure you put a screw in every standoff under the motherboard and there are no extra standoffs shorting some tracks under there?

    Look at all the screws and make sure none of the heads are touching any tracks.

    Take the mobo out and try running it without a case. You may have simply fried it with static :)
