Thanks for the quick response JMT21.
make sure the small case cables (the ones coming from the front of the case) are plugged into the motherboard (these are very tiny cables, color coded probably).....
I enclosed a photo of the motherboard with this post. So I assume the cables from the case are to be plugged into the purple one, orange one, second yellow one, and the black one at the very bottom -- but I'm not sure if this is right. The orientation of the cable holes led me to believe that the cable for the orange plug could also be fitted into the first yellow. I tried both, but they didn't work.
I could probably post one where I highlight which plugs are plugged or empty. For instance, the long white plug at the bottom is empty, but the long blue one next to it is plugged.
you more than likely need to dig up your motherboard manual
Where can I find the manual? It's been such a long time since I got this computer that Acer doesn't carry this model anymore. And a google search didn't bring up anything. :4-dontkno
the Power Supply is plugged in right? and the black switch on the back of the PSU is flipped to the "On" position?
I checked, but my PSU doesn't have a button on the back.
