Windows 7: New build won't turn on

New build won't turn on

Building new machine, does not turn on. What I've hooked up:

CPU - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Mobo - Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3
RAM - two sticks of OCZ 2GB DDR3
PSU - Corsair CMPSU-400
HDD - Seagate 300GB
HDD - WD Caviar Green 500GB
Front panel connectors (mobo speaker, power light, HDD light, etc.)
USB connector
ATX 24-pin plugged in
ATX 8-pin plugged in
CPU fan plugged in
VGA Switch Card plugged in

All I get is a green light on the mobo. Pushing the power button on the case does nothing. No BIOS beep codes, no fan, no nothin. Just the green light. Any suggestions?

Tried 2nd PSU from old computer. Still get nothing but a green light. Only have HDD, 1 stick of RAM and monitor plugged in, no other devices.

CPU inserted correctly ? I have even found a defective power button on a brand new case. I took a spare button & wires from an old computer & connected to the MB spot & bingo it worked !

Looking at reviews on newegg this seems like a common problem (more than 10%) with the mobo. One person wrote this:
"While on the phone I asked the lady, “what is the return ratio on this product?” I didn’t think she’d tell me, but to my surprise she put me on hold, came back a couple of minutes later and said that “the last 9 out of 10 shipped were returned”! A bad batch obviously, so for a replacement I ordered a different model. So, thank you Newegg for your honesty, and for taking some of the pain out of returning defective stuff."

Looks like the mobo is bad. Which is kinda sad since it sounds like one hell of a PC. I recommend doing what the other person did. Return the board and get a different one. Good luck, Colonel.

A bent CPU pin, or unseated CPU could cause this. Downloading manual now to see what it might offer.

OK, solved. Fumz wins a big fat prize. Whatever the hell comes after "octuple." Checked connections for the 9th time and it worked.


PSU came with a connector for the panel connectors. I ditched that and plugged them into the board directly and everything seems to be A-OK.

Greatly appreciate the fast response from you all.

OK, not much help in the manual, basically says check the jumper setting and connectors. Since you are getting no beeps, it isn't posting. No fans running isn't a good sign. You could try removing the Ram. The PC wouldn't boot, but if the fan starts and you get a red led, you could try 1 Ram stick at a time. Looking like you might have a bad MB, a call to Asus support may be in order. You might have to RMA it if the poster above is correct about common failure rate. Sorry buddy. A Guy

Glad to here the board actually works after what I read online. You'll have to tell us how well the computer does after you've had time to play with it a bit.
