I assume the manual is useless, but does the mobo manufacturer have a forum--either run by the manufacturer or by a private party?

Do you know if the molex connector supplies power to the same locations on the board as does the 8 pin? That is, can you use one or the other--or is one of them only for certain purposes?

You have an 850 watt PSU, so I assume you plan to run a high powered graphics card or otherwise use a lot of power?

Don't know what else to tell you, but I certainly wouldn't resort to a transatlantic phone call.

Motherboard in question (model number is showing in the second picture),

Foxconn - Products: Motherboard

That 4 pin for the PCI-E slots is only really needed if you are running two video cards, other than that it won't affect anything if it isn't connected.

As for the 8 pin, that is needed if you want a stable system. It can also be run using only a 4 pin as shown in the manual,

Try it that way and see if it will boot.

What is the make and model of the new power supply?

One of the better manufacturers. Doesn't matter though as it still could be a bad one.

Be a pain but have you another computer you can test it on to see if it is the 8/4 pin that is the problem? If not I would look at returning/exchanging it for another.

Quick question, was this motherboard and the old power supply both working before the swap, or is the swap the result of the old power supply dying? If it is due to the old PSU dying, then there is a very good possibility it took the motherboard with it.

Also in your video clip, when it is running without the 8 pin power connector, is it loading Windows or just running? From the looks of it with that connector on, that there is a problem with the motherboard.

Would that also be the reason for this thread,

Yeah Sorry i Forgot to ask could you mark this Thread Solved, I found after taking the Motherboard out that the area around the 8 pin was blackened slightly and figured that the motherboard went with the PSU, So i now need a New motherboard.

Cheers Guys and Sorry for Forgetting
