    Default New system build not powering up

    Hi all,

    Am new to building systems and just had to replace my 6yr old pc... inevitably have run into a serious problem.

    After all components have been assembled, I simply cannot get it to POST.

    i7-920 D0 @ 2.66 GHz QPI 4.8 GT/s 8MB Cache (using boxed heat sink)
    Gigabyte EX58-UD3R rev 1.6 motherboard
    Corsair Dominator 6GB 3x 2GB DDR3 (TR3x6G1600C8D)
    1TB WD 7200rpm 32MB SATA HD caviar green
    inno3D GeForce GT 240 1Gb
    Samsung superwritemaster SATA 22x DVD writer
    CoolerMaster silent pro 700W M
    CoolerMaster Cosmos 1000 case

    When I turn on the power switch, the fans spin and just 1 phase LED labelled DD1 flashes along with the case's power LED but then it immediately powers off.

    Having read through the forum, I have tried the following:
    -reset CMOS
    -tried booting with just 1 RAM module
    -crosschecked all connectors
    -tried using a different PCI-E slot
    -tried using a differnt RAM slot( certainly not the blue one!)
    -crosschecked the polarity of the F-Panel jumper settings

    but to no avail, could someone brighten my venture ?

    Thanks indeed in anticipation

    Thank you for the very prompt reply. Unfortunately the old PC's PSU is just rated at 300W and am not too sure if this will support it and thus I have not yet tried.

    Also, when you say

    "what error code is it giving you on the motherboard l.e.d clock?? "

    I confess that I do not know where this motherboad LED clock is. The supplied manual and the downloaded version do not mention this, could you please guide me through this. Nothing is displayed on the monitor when I switch on so I cant read any error messages(if this is what you were referring to)

    Thanks again.

    the clocks at the very bottom two digit red clock display right hand side,it will work with 300w psu,i ran mine while i waited for new psu,just plug the 4pin cpu power plug in(it will only plug in one way leaving four empty sockets) and try it its 100% safe as ive done this myself

    Ok have set up the old 300W PSU but now I have a question, should I just plug in the 4-pin cpu power plug and not the ATX as well? Sorry if this is not the technical term but according to the manual/schematic it is just referred to as:

    1. ATX_12V_2x (4 pin cpu power plug)
    2. ATX (just plainATX)

    yes plug them both in,the only thing that will be different from other psu is the 4pin and 8pin cpu power,it will run on a 4pin plug and it will only plug in one way,plug all the other connectors in aswell including motherboard 24pin plug

    Oh dear this old psu has only a 20 pin motherboard plug, I hope that this is still sufficient enough

    Very bad news, as soon as I switched on, two fans (bottom and back of the case) started spinning but the psu sparked and is certainly fried(smoke and acrid smell)no LEDs lit up....

    I am hoping that this is just the PSU.

    it will only plug in one way,i just read the manual it says its ok aslong as you dont plug the 20pin into the 24pins slots ie leave four empty slots at the bottom,the only way to know is to try with original psu and see if mb lights up,
