View Full Version : new system -power problems

June 17th, 2006, 05:27 AM
I just put together my first system and I need help
Asus MB with P4 630 preasembled , PS 600 w but when I powe it up nothing happens, just a high pitch sound comming from the PS. What can be the problem

If this requires a 600 watt power supply, it is either an old midrange machine or a new PC. I moved the thread to the off-topic area, as this is not vintage or anywhere near close.

anyway any comments or suggestions?

High pitch sound as in the fan turning or a buzzing sound or what?

Either you have a bad PSU, or you have a sh!tload of power consumtion:D! What's plugged into your PSU?

June 17th, 2006, 07:27 AM
MB, 2 HDD, 1 DVD WR, 2 case fans, video card and firewire card, card reader
when I turn the power one from the PS swich button the high pitch sound starts and when I turn it off it goes off slowly,
I tryed to connect just one case fan to PS see if it works but I got nothing
shouldn't it work?

Try disconnecting everything except for the MB & of course the power button to the MB. If it works, then you know the problem isn't your PSU. Now, connect something else to your PSU, & try powering up again, & so on until it stops working. If/when it stops working, then the last device you installed is the problem.

I had the same problem last week! Turns out when my last PSU died (there was smoke), it took my Hard-Drive's PCB with it!

I bought a new PS still nothing
I'm out of options.
Tryed like you adviced no outcome

Make sure your MB isn't in contact w/ the case causing a short; Make sure you used something to raise the MB about 1CM. Most cases &/or MB's usually come w/ little scew-thingies that screw into the holes on the case that rise the MB a little.

I did out of the case it powered up

My guess would be that your last PS was bad, and it fried the motherboard

It works out of the case? Good! Now all you have to do is find the MB-Rising-thingies that most likely came with your case or Mobo or both! (most likely the short(s) didn't damage anything, hopefully...)

This may be a stupid question, but did you connect the front panel connectors correctly?
