    P5k Deluxe Powers on - then straight off

    I finally recieved a P5K deluxe and Q6600.

    I set it up and powered on - nothing.

    I re-checked all the connections, and it powered on - all lit up then powers off one second later.

    the obvious cause is a short.

    I've put it on a cardboard box and powered it on with no devices other than ram / power / power switch / cpu

    Powers on - lights up, fan spins, powers off in under a second, almost as if its shorting.

    I did see a simlar thread on this a few days ago but cannot find it now.

    I've not come across thei behaviour before.
    It is Inevitable.....

    Re: P5k Deluxe Powers on - then straight off

    Did you plug the 12v 8pin lead in to the motherboard ?

    A short is possible as well, but not likely if you have built it up on cardboard.

    It could be a few things, but some things to test would be;

    1 stick of RAM - try all the RAM individually in all the slots. This is just a precaution.

    Duff/Incompatible PSU - If the board itself is ok, then this would be the prime suspect. Try another if possible.

    Check nothing small and conductive has fallen onto the board and become lodged - again, its worth a try.

    Check that your graphics card is seated properly, and that the power cable is plugged into the card if there is one - this can cause the behaviour that your are reporting.

    Re: P5k Deluxe Powers on - then straight off

    Do you have a 3 pin fan attached to the motherboard CPU header?
    Some systems won't come on if they think there isnt a fan on the HSF (you can disable it in the BIOS later though)

    Re: P5k Deluxe Powers on - then straight off

    clunk is the winner.

    When I re-cabled it to check why it wasn't powering on in the first place I left off the little 4 pin additional power lead (forget the name of it). I also did this when I removed the board from the chassis to test on a box.

    Fault is user error.

    Not here, looks the same as every other in the thread, how odd that you (I assume, since you asked) are.

    I've forgot to plug in the power connector for the graphics before, which is also easy to do
