Windows 7: New build won't post

Instead of a new MB or PSU get a PSU tester for like $15 or less and find out for sure if thats the problem. A PSU tester is handy to have. I have 3 of them.

I think your problem is MB related though.

Let us know what happens.

Good luck.

Windows 7 Profession 64-bit

With brand new builds and these problems I always recommend pulling the motherboard to make 200% sure you do not have any extra standoffs (or other foreign objects) under the motherboard shorting it out. Remember, ATX cases are designed to support 1000s of motherboards. The standard for motherboards only says if a mounting hole is there it must be in specific spots. It does not say there must be a mounting hole. So it is common for new builders, and careless experienced builders to put an extra stand-off in the case where no corresponding motherboard mounting hole exists.

I agree also that you may have a bad power supply.

Did you apply a proper layer of thermal interface material?

Welcome to Windows 7 Support forums,
Acey a common issue with builds are the correct placements of the micro pins from the case to the mother board. IE: HD sound connection, the pins that control the power up button etc.
Consult your MOBO manual and diagrams so thet the correct connections are made. If even 1 connection is properly connected power up will fail and the system will not post.
