This is my first post, but loads of the forum posts here made me grab all the parts I needed for an HTPC and then sit down to put it all together. Unfortunately, 6 hours later, and I press the button....and nothing happens
I've done some rudimentary checking of cables to make sure I wired everything up ok, but to no avail. The spec of the machine is:
Motherboard: ASRock H77 Pro4-M
PSU: Antec Earthwatts 430W
CPU: Intel i3 2105 (should be backwards compatible with the Ivy Bridge mobo)
HD: WD Caviar Green 2TB
Case: Antec Fusion Silver (not the Remote one)
So wired up, press power button and nothing happens - no lights, no fans (not even on the PSU). The PSU switch is on and plugged in.
I've got a mate with a multimeter who'll pop round tomorrow to let me have a fiddle with it - but am I looking at a duff PSU? How would I tell? Does anyone have any idea of where I should start in debugging it? (and is there any more information I need to provide?)
Obviously no software/bios problems that I know of, as I can't get in. But I did pull the CMOS battery for 15 seconds and do a CMOS reset in accordance with the manual. Not sure that did anything mind you.
Thanks for your help
