    Not even getting the BIOS...

    I just fit the Akasa AK913 and it seemed everything was fine, windows boot and so I shut down to finish the case. I plugged in the 3 pin connector for my side panel fan, and screwed the panel itself in place. Went to boot again... and nothing. No beeps, no response from the monitor (the standby light goes from amber to green to amber again), no nothing, but everything inside is happily glowing/spinning away.

    Now to fit the fan on the cooler, I did have to move my RAM over to the second two DIMM slots but that recognised fine when I boot the first (and only) time.

    Has anyone got any ideas?

    Many thanks.

    Whip the fan off the cooler, move the ram back... Hold the fan in place while you power up the system and see if it boots... If nothing works its prolly best to strip it down to a minimum config and try reseating the cpu etc (also make sure all power cables are in place!)

    We're all good now!

    All I did was reset the CMOS... bit odd if you ask me but who cares?! I'm one happy bunny!
