Okay, so I have an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6300 and I'm using a Centurion Cooler Master case. I connected the POWER SW cable to the PW input, the RESET SW to the RES input, the H.D.D. LED cable to the HD input, and the SPEAKER cable to the SPEAK input (basically the cases cables to the F_PANEL). The are 2 single cables tied together. One has a + on it and the other has a - on it--I'm not sure where those go. Also, there is nothing in the PWR_LED input. I think I have everything else set up fine. It started for a couple seconds earlier, then it stopped.

Does anyone have any help they can offer? It would be much appreciated.

Oh, I'm sure I put the + side and the - sides on the right sides.

Thanks in advance.

those extra wires must be for the power led carefully check,and make sure they are before you plug them in for that.that wouldnt cause it not to work though.first trouble shooting step i would take is double check all your hardware to make sure its all seated properly,and that all power cables are securely attached.

I have to agree with pharoah this would not cause the computer not to post.

This problem may get more attention in the motherboards section of hardware, if you guys would like it moved let me know

If it would, please do.

I've checked, and everything seems to by fit in properly.. The PWR_LED input has 3 inputs, like I said, there are only 2 single cables, the + and the - attached together.

Maybe the power switch is bad or not connected right.

Try touching the 2 pins the case switch is suppose to connect to with a screw driver for a few seconds, if it starts the release.

Report back what happens.

You should also give us your full system specs, especially interested in the motherboard and psu

just copied this from the specs at newegg check,and see if your ram is correct at 1.8volts.if your ram has a higher voltage rating it may not post

Notice: Only DDR2-800 memory supporting JEDEC approved 1.8V operation with timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 is supported on Intel Desktop Boards based on Intel 965 Express Chipsets
