Power light comes on but goes right off

August 22, 2009 at 00:13:02
Specs: Windows XP

I have installed the motherboard. When I power on the computer, the power light flickers on but then goes off immediately. The green light on the motherboard stays on continuously. I looked up some troubleshooting steps and we made sure that the CMOS jumper is set to normal and we put the washers beneath the screws, we checked the RAM, we are not sure we connected the ASUS Q-connector or system panel pins correctly. we think we either set that up bad or that we have some bad components. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you bench test prior to installing in the case ?

If you didn't benchtest the hardware BEFORE you installed it in the case, all bets are off. Gut the case & start from scratch...this time, do it right:
