Check all of these...

- power supply
- power cable
- compatibilty of parts
- make sure you have an OS

If all of those check out and still nothing, then get back ASAP!!!

well.....lets see....the mobo lights power up and the power indicator on the board also does
the power cable has to be ok if it is gettin gpower to the mobo
the parts are all compatable...pretty much put together by a guru here
I haven't even been able to boot up my system so i really can't have an operating system

it HAS to be ur psu. ur fan on ur computer wont even turn on. unless its ur fans thats broken, but i doubt it. if ur fan is connected directly to the psu (not through mobo) and it doesnt turn on , then its the power supply problem. also u should switch ur psu to 115 watt setting.

could that be why non of the fans are turning on....I'm not going to mess with it tonight but i'll remember to plug in only one of those next time.....also i need to know which connector you all think i should use...i was thinking the 3 pin ones would be better but i need you guys to tell me which on to use....If i use the 3 pin connectors i just need to find exactly which fans connect to each place on the mobo......

What about the cpu fan...it doesn't turn on either.....could the problem plugging in both connectors cause this same problem.....or is it a whole different problem....i need all the advice you can come up with

Ok this is just a question i have.....my motherboard supports SATA 3Gbs.....I have a SATA 150.....would it still be compatible or will it create issues......I hope it doesn't...I don't think so but please let me know
