    Um, i kinda buggered my system.
    Im not sure if its the motherboard or the CPU.
    My specs are at the bottom of the page.
    Ok. This is what happens.
    I press the button (on of course) and the ram led comes on, and the cpu fan moves like a millimeter, and then it turns off.
    No beeps from bios. Nothing.
    I _think_ its the CPU, i hope to god it is cos i aint go no warantee on the mobo...
    PLEASE TELL ME ITS THE CPU!
    please...

    If this is a new assembly, is the cpu fan plugged into the correct header? The aux power conneter hooked up?

    If you have more than one fan header that detects the fan RPM try switching to the other one. My son ran into this problem with a Soltek mobo in use for 8-9 months. Switching the fan power header did the trick. Good luck.

    Hmmm...

    My suspicion was that it was the CPU protection circuit. If it does not detect a fan on the cpu, then it shuts down. There may even be a short or break in the fan wire. But anyway, glad it's working.
