Alright this is my first build but i have an expert helping me...
First i will tell you what i have then we can discuss the problem.
Mobo:ASUS A8V-E ATX AMD
(keeping in mind, i have my power supply connected to the mobo. cpu installed with heat sink all connected to the mobo. i also have my case power switch and reset button connected)
now the problem, is that when i connect the power to the mobo and turn the power on; everything starts for a bit (1sec) then turns off. the 'stand by power' is not even illuminated on the mobo but the power supply is in working condition. and when i short the power to the motherboard everything works fine. it seems that when i use the case power switch nothing works....
any tips would be nice. thanks you.
