It will be on the back, selector for 110/220. Make sure it's set right to where you live. US uses 110, and I think the UK uses 220.

It should be next to where you plug in the cord to the wall. It's the little red thing above the on/off switch in this pic:

Some PSU's switch automatically, so yours might be like that.

THE BAREBONES HARDWARE FOR VIDEO BY LAMBOFGOD

the only required parts you need for video are.

1.Motherboard
2.Powersupply
3.CPU
4.RAM
5.Videocard /unless you have onboard video

And make sure you have a known good working monitor and power cables for both the PC and monitor,
and make sure the monitor is powered on.

and before when even get down to it , Make sure you have a large enough power supply.
Dont even waste your time doing this if you are trying to boot a system with 2 X1950XTXs in crossfire, and 6 Hardrives with a 300 Watt power supply.


Ok Lets Start

1. REMOVE the motherboard, place it on a Plastic surafce/ such as a rubber mat, or a large square of packing material.

2. Start putting the ram, cpu & heatsink/fan, videocard (some videocards Need additional power make sure you are plugging power into these places as well). ONE thing at a time, double check and make sure everything is in place properly and plugged in I.E. CPU fan.

3. Plug the power supply into the board (some boards require additional power, make sure you are plugging the power into these places as well),

4. Take your case and move it by the board and plug the powerswitch onto the CORRECT pins on the motherboard.(consult your motherboards manual if you dont know where these are)

5. Also try hooking up the small speaker in your pc to the CORRECT pins on the mobo to get a diagnostic beep code. (consult your motherboards manual if you dont know where these are)

6. Hook up the monitor to the back of the videocard, carefully, its not screwed down so it can pop out easily. (if your using onboard video this step does not pertain to you)
If you have onboard video just plug it into the VGA port of the back of the motherboard.

7. Press the power button.

Did you hear any Beeps? any video?

If you still dont have video try this only if you have both onboard video and a Slot based videocard I.E. PCI-E/AGP/PCI pull the Slot based video card and try the onboard)

still none?

If you still dont have any video, Try replacing the easiest compents first, such as Ram, then Videocard, then PSU, then CPU, then Motherboard. Just ONE at a time and try booting and listening for beeps after each one.

Make sure you have known good working Componets your replacing them with as well, and make sure they are compatible.

That should narrow down what componet is causing trouble.

Good Luck, LambofGod

Thanks for the post LambofGod

this is what I did so far.

Ok replaced Motherboard (because it fried when i first got my new PSU and case)
I tried two diff PCI-E cards my 6800 ultra an my bros 6600 i believe
I tried it with two different monitors still no cigar
I tried to hook up my old PSU to the new motherboard, but it doesnt have all the connectors required for this motherboard
CPU should be fine, took it to a PC repair shop last week (when i first was having the problems and they told me I had a fried Motherboard) and they said it was fine
RAM, I put in two 1gig ddr400 sticks tried it with two then with one. Then I did the same with two 512mb ddr400 sticks and still same thing.

So i believe it might be the PSU. Im trying to get an RMA from the PSU manufator.

ok, i just did the "test" the jump start to see if the PSU is fried or not and it isnt. Where you stick a paper clip in the black and green wire holes and turn on the power in the back. If the fans power up then it isnt the PSU.
