Thread: Computer refuses to boot when i place it in a case

    Default Computer refuses to boot when i place it in a case

    Yet again i come to this forums due to my newbieness in computer related matters.

    This time i tried to place my mobo & parts inside a case (after several months of using them without one because i was too lazy), so i connect everything, including the case cables (power sw and such) and press the power button, it seems to turn on, however it wont boot.

    I suspect that the case wirings were wrong so i unplug all of em, and turn on the comp using the switch incorporated in the motherboard (DFY for the win) and still won't boot.

    So i remove everything and place it yet again on top of my mobo box, and after several failed attempts to boot and a lot of CMOS jumper manipulation i finally manage to boot the comp sadly still caseless.

    So anybody has a hint of what could be wrong?

    Are you sure that the mobo was not shorting on the case? Did you have all of the standoffs accounted for and in proper position?
