  1. Hi All,

    You may have seen my ramblings earlier on a six month old thread.... :blush:

    Well, I've sorted out the case to motherboard wiring best I can but when I power up, the CPU fan spins for less than a second then nothing.

    I have tried an alternative ATX power supply (300W, I think the original was 250W) which I know works in another machine but with no joy.

    Can anyone give me a few pointers to look at our is something on the motherboard goosed.....


    Ps. it's an old TIME (UK Company) supplied mini tower with 2*128Mb PC100 RAM and an AMDK6-2 500Mhz CPU

    mmm... faulty power switch?... faulty PSU conector on the MoBo?...
    Check out the power connector of the floppy... make sure its well connected...
    Make sure that the PSU isnt in short.... tighten every single screw that your board has... (that is the solution to power issues in many cases... still dont know why... but anyhow... hahaha i got my system running!!!).
