Default Major Prob.

Ok so I have been building my new computer (it's a first for me).

AMD 64 S939 3500
Asus Pi or something PCI-E
ATI x800GTO Saphire
1G of PC3200 RAM
450 ATX Power SUpply

Here's the deal, I have attached everything where it needs to be, etc. I put the plug in and I hit the main power switch then the regular power switch and it turn on for about 1 second, all I see moving is the fan in the power supply for about 1 sec, and the power LED flashes red once.... If you need more specs about the mobo please ask me. NEED HELP ASAP!!!

Oh yea anbd the green LED power indicator stays on. I dont have a monitor attached to it right now cuz I'm just stesting to see if it turns on.

Well first of all, don't double or even triple post. Just Edit the post already in place.

Check that you have a small power connector plugged in to the motherboard too. Its this little square power ATX plug i think its called, and depending on the motherboard, might need it to stay on. (Mine does)
Plus, also make sure you have that Ribbon Power cable in all the way in too, as this is always needed in a motherboard, if its using the mini ATX 12v supply or not.

I hope this helps

WOOOOOOT!!!! I found the porblem! It was a screw that was too small for the mobo so I tightened in so hard that the mobo was touching the chasis and it was grounding it out but now it works!!!! Thanks for the help man if it were'nt for you I would have never started messing with it and attempting to remove the PS!!
