I’ll probably try removing everything and building it back up again just to check. I guess it’s time to send this board back and try to get a replacement. Ahhh, now we’re getting somewhere. The case is plastic, so it wouldn’t be conducting anything regardless, but the mobo sits about 1 inch off the case with the standoffs already. I don’t want to remove the CPU and heat sink, since it would mess with the thermal grease coating that came on the heat sink.

It’s brand new, with pre-installed aluminum heatsinks on each one. Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this problem? Thread starter rawskyb Start date Oct 3, This is my first venture into building my own PC, and so far I am about several hundred dollars nforce4m-w only have a large paperweight to show for my efforts.
So much for RTFM I can’t seem nforce4m-x get customer support from the mobo mfg ECSand the supplier I got this board from is horrible about returning calls when I call in, they are always “on the phone with other customers”. So that leaves me with only two components I have not tried swapping out – the CPU and the memory.
From what I have read on some various web pages, that square 4-pin connector is for “Pentium 4” processors, and a few sites even state “if you are building an AMD system, leave it unconnected”. Can anyone offer suggestions!
I’m think maybe I should move on to a different mobo, maybe another brand nforce4mm-a work better? I had pretty much come to the conclusion that my mobo had a problem, so I went and got an RMA for it last week. The case had standoffs already, I don’t know where I would need spacers, or what “knobs” refers to.

In the meantime, I decided to order another mobo so that I could get up and running while waiting for the original to be repaired. So therefore, one of the rails can possibly eecs dead since you have no monitor output. I would try putting it in the slots closest to the CPU first.
Has anyone ever seen or heard of anything resembling this? You must log in or register to reply here. The case is plastic, so it wouldn’t be conducting anything regardless, but the mobo sits about 1 inch off the case with the standoffs already.
If i connect my CPU fan to the wrong connector then my system won’t boot. I tried to more changes today – I disconnected the speaker no changeand I purchased a really heavy-duty power supply, thinking that maybe the W PS might be related to the problem. A 4-pin “molex” connector arranged in a square pattern and a pin connector, which can actually be split into a pin and 4-pin connector. I guess it’s time to send this board back and try to get a replacement.
Could some sort of memory incompatibility account for this type of behavior? When that is rules out, it might be the PSU. However, if I disconnect either the 4-pin power connector, or the 4-pin power connector that is part of the pin connector, the mobo will power up and remain powered up.
Did you look at this? So checking the connections, I do in fact have the 3-wire lead from the CPU fan going nfrce4m-a the 4-pin connection on the MoBo, and there are plastic parts on the connector that only wcs it to mate up one way. I don’t want to remove the CPU and heat sink, since it would mess with the thermal grease coating that came on the heat sink.

If so, do I need to modify the fan connectors from my case? I’m attaching a photo, qm the hopes that this might expose my problem.
But I suppose if I get a replacement mobo I will have to deal with this anyway. Could the power switch be faulty? I don’t really have any other options to try. I will try moving the RAM and see if that makes a difference I’m hoping maybe someone on this forum can help ma out.
