Can you try connecting the front panel ON/OFF switch leads directly to the MB ? NO HD, NO Reset, NO Speaker, NO Led

Edit: Does this MB have any LEDs on the MB that light up, some newer MB's do.

Thanks Doc.
I've built several computers. I guess I never noticed. At least I learned something tonight. As I understand it, his PSU humms before he tries to start it. I think it is the transfer from the old case. This case dosen't come with one.

Brainfart: About a year ago, I guessed that the power switch was bad. I switched the leads from the Reset switch button to the MB connection. Bingo, the computer powered ON !

The ON/OFF & the reset basically use the exact same type of momentary switch.

Good thought Jack I've done that myself after I accidently pushed the the power switch out of its mounting and broke it.

Guess I'm not as smart as smart as you, Doc. I never thought of that one.

Get the manual.

The "HD light" is called the IDE LED on the Asus Q Connector (p. 2-36. That connection has to be oriented the right way. (The power and reset switch connections usually don't; they're not polarized.)

The front panel audio header (p. 2-33) can be set in the BIOS to support either AC97 audio (old) or HD audio. Your Rosewill Challenger case probably has connectors for both.

The board has a power LED on it (p. 2-1). Does it illuminate?

Let me repeat:

Get the manual.

My power supply is OCZ Stealth 650 or 750 watt, I believe, The computer just refuses to boot at all, I am just wondering if it has to do anything with the front panel start button not working, or if it lays some where else, but It might not be, I have the Q connector plugged in with the Power button and Restart button snug as it can get,

There is a green light on my motherboard if that helps any at all.

Go back and read Doc's post #31 and try that. If that dosen't work switch the start leads and the reset leads and try to start. Put the start lead where the reset button should go and the reset lead where the start lead should go. Try to start by pushing the start button. If that fails try to start using the reset button.

Green light on the motherboard is good. All that tells you though is that your plugged into the wall and the board is detecting it.

Also I'm playing catch up from 10PM last night on the thread.

Do you have the secondary power cable plugged into the mother board?
I didn't see mention of that being plugged in just the 20+4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If what Essenbe posted above does not work then maybe what I post below.

Is this the ASUS Q-connector or the new one that came with the case in this picture?
If it is the new one try using it.
It is marked where front panel cables plug into it and then plugs on the motherboard where the Q connector plugs.

See under your thumb "LED" that is where the HD light from front panel plugs in on this one and the Q-connector.

Q-conn connections straight from your manual.
