I guess it’s time to send this board back and try to get a replacement. This is my first venture into building my own PC, and so far I am about several hundred dollars and only have a large paperweight to show for my efforts. I’m attaching a photo, in the hopes that this might expose my problem. I’m hoping maybe someone on this forum can help me out. I would try putting it in the slots closest to the CPU first. Uggghh, I was hoping we were onto a solution here

If i connect my CPU fan to the wrong connector then my system won’t boot.

Though I thought this was just to trigger the on singla to the mobo, which it does seem to do since the fans spin up briefly. So I received the new nForce4M-A version 3.

I will try moving the RAM and see if that makes a difference So therefore, one of the rails can possibly be dead since you have no monitor output. I don’t believe I’m getting a full system ak up though, since I get no signal to my monitor, nor does the keyboard seem to be getting sustained power.
First, check your video card, if nforcee4m-a can, in another system. This is my first venture into building my own PC, and so far I am about several hundred dollars and only have a large paperweight to show for my efforts.
I will work on re-connecting these fans in an hour or two when I get home. So much for RTFM Uggghh, I was hoping we were onto a solution here I don’t really have any other options to try.
I can’t seem to get customer support from the mobo mfg ECSand the supplier I got this board from is horrible about returning calls when I call in, they are always “on the phone with other customers”.
It is a new build, new PS, case, mobo – everything. Anyone have any thoughts? I have a new video card on the way, just in case that might be part of the problem.

Beyond the power supply connections for the peripherals, there are two main power leads coming from the power supply: Can you provide more detail? If I pull the 4-pin power connection off the mobo, the fans spin up nfoorce4m-a stay up, but I doubt the board is getting full power, and I don’t hear the speaker beep.
Thread starter rawskyb Start date Oct 3, So that leaves me with only two components I have not tried swapping out – exs CPU and the memory. Joined Sep 27, Amm 2, 0. Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this problem? The case had standoffs already, I don’t know where I would need spacers, or what “knobs” refers to.

Can anyone offer suggestions! Please check out our forum guidelines for info related to our community. So checking the connections, I do in fact nforce4-ma the 3-wire lead from the CPU fan going to the 4-pin connection on the MoBo, and there are plastic parts on the connector that only allow it to mate up one way.
But I suppose if I get a replacement mobo I will have to deal with this anyway.
