    yeah mine actually uses the standard 24 pin, a 6 pin, and a norml 4 pin, but they are all in properly, i have a lead coming out the PSU with a 4pin (2x2 'cube') that doesnt seem to go anywhere..

    my other power leads are PCI-E, CD, Floppy... and then the mobo, and cpu mentioned above

    i dont know of any motherboard that uses a 6-pin power connector. The 2x4 block just to the right of the heatsink in this photo:

    should have a 2x2 4-pin inserted into it, either on the left or the right hand side (it'll only fit in one way)

    to the right of the heatsink is 2x4 socket, coming off my PSU is a 2x4 plug, that didnt work. I have a 2x2 plug coming of my PSU that isnt going anywhere.. because my other pc doesnt have a 2x4, it has a 2x2 socket, like you said also, i put that spare plug into the right side of the 2x4...but still no luck

    Re: Really need help :(

    Could this be the problem?


    The hard drive i am using on my new build id the drive out of my old one... i uninstalled the ATI driver (ready for my new nvidia ones), but I have all my old hardware installed on that drive still (mobo etc) if i formatted the drive using another pc, would it run freshly on my new build?

    Re: Really need help :(

    If this is the faulty hard drive that i helped you out with some weeks ago, and is a failing hard drive then yes it would stop you getting anywhere.
    If it is a fully working hard drive but with Windows installed for other hardware, it wont boot into windows but you'll still see early stages of windows boot process.

    OK, let's start some basic diagnostics.

    Remember that Linux LiveCD that i told you to make? Well now is the time to use it.
    Unplug the hard drive, put the LiveCD in the tray, and set the BIOS to boot from your optical drive.
    Let us know what happens.

    I doubt that the hard drive will do what you were suggesting, you should at least get it to try and load and then throw up a windows can't boot because you messed with something error message.

    Have you tried both connectors on the graphics card? And assuming you have done all the numpty checks that the monitor cable hasnt come loose at the monitor end .etc.

    Edit: MSIC just got there while I spent an unnerving amount of time writing the post.

    Re: Really need help :(

    Ah, the 'Acer' logo screen will be there because in the BIOS you will have an option ticked to hide POST information (Power On Self Test i think).
    When you turn the PC on, try guessing your BIOS entry key - it's usually something like F2, F8, Delete or similar. On unfamiliar PCs and laptops i find myself quickly trying to press a whole row of keys within a couple of seconds, i'm sure it must look like i'm trying to be some sort of rubbish piano player

    You have an Abit IP-35 right? Someone here surely has one and can save the hassle of having to go all the way to the Abit website...... come on someone!

    Edit: I just realised - you said that you get the Acer logo on the screen, so clearly the graphics card is connected properly and you can get at least briefly some signal on the monitor (not what you said in the opening post). That still leaves some power issue maybe, but we need to rule out BIOS settings as a first line.

    Re: Really need help :(

    Ummm unless that "Acer" is just a standard power on screen for the monitor, which then sugests that it's not gettign a signal from the graphics card.

    Do you get tha acer screen if you just turn the monitor on with out it being plugged into the pc?

    Is this a whole new build? ie first time put together and turned on?
    If so then this sounds like the odd BIOS thing that can happen on the ABit IP35
    Try this, follow the manual instructions for resetting the BIOS, then repeat the BIOS reset 4 or 5 times.
    Then try booting again.

    start by removing 1 DIMM.
    with 2x2Gb you probably need more than the JEDEC default 1.8V so you need to use 1 to get into the BIOS & increase RAM voltage to what is recommended for your RAM.

    overlooking the obsious again, thanks for the reminder Buff. Also should of said to post in the ABit care section, that's what it's there for.

    Have you tried both pci-e cables in both the pci-e slots on the PSU? if they are faulty then RMA that psu.

    Re: Really need help :(

    The PSU is powering the other components fine, can this still effect the DDR2 modules? Ill try and make this all clearer:

    I have RAM A and RAM B (both 2GB each)

    RAM A will work fine on its own

    RAM A and B wont boot at all

    RAM B wont boot at all (even as a single unit)

    so im presuming RAM B is faulty

    Ive also been into the BIOS settings and changed the DDR2 voltages up slightly to 2.1v, but still no luck.

    ...unless im doing something wrong?
