Default Need Help!

No time for story.
I was transferring motherboards,and now when I plug it in I get a light on my motherboard, and I plug my PSU in and hit the power.
I then get a little turn from my CPU fan and that's it.
The motherboard came from a case with more cables coming from the power switch, is that my problem?

Do you know what motherboard it is? Sounds like you put the switch on the wrong pins.

Make sure all the cables and wires are connected properly. Check to make sure there are no misplaced standoffs under the mobo.

Ok it fires up, but we have no video on screen!
I tried moving RAM but nothing...
It's onboard.

Often there is a jumper for it, or you could remove the cmos battery for a few minutes.

Do you have any sort of 3rd party video adapters (graphics cards) installed? If so, take them out so that the onboard VGA can be the primary. Or plug into the graphics card if you have one.
