Guys, I'm in a really sticky situation here. I was supposed to be done with this custom computer by tonight, but everything has gone wrong. Yesterday, when the parts came for a new computer from newegg, I began piecing them together right away. As I put all the parts together, I plugged it into an outlet to test it out. Unfortunately, it wouldn't even start. I checked the front panel module wires if it had been correctly put in in the motherboard. It seemed fine and I was confused. So then I switched computer cases with my old and new computer, checking if the wires were defected in the new case. I basically used my old computer's power switch wires on the new motherboard, and hit power, it didn't turn on. Then i proceeded to plug in the new power switch wires into the old motherboard, it worked. So then I knew it wasn't the power switch wires. I ran some other tests to see what was the problem, and i came to conclude it was the motherboard's problem. I set out to quickly buy a new motherboard at frys electronics right before they closed. I hoped the new motherboard worked, and thankfully it did. I installed windows and everything in my new computer. The next morning, it was still working, and i was about to deliver this computer to my family friend(thats who i made it for). But as i set it up there and tried to turn it on, it had the EXACT same problem as the first motherboard. Although this time, the computer actually turned on successfully like 3 times out of 50 times(not exaggerating, might even be a little too generous with 50). I was really confused, i ran the exact same tests i did yesterday again, and i think its the motherboard again. So i set out AGAIN to buy ANOTHER motherboard. I quickly went home and reassembled the computer, it still wouldn't turn on. I am really confused, the last two motherboards were from frys and they were open boxed (they were returned to the store but "checked and ran tests" on these motherboards), so i don't know if that has to do with it being broken. The first motherboard that I received in the mail was the GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R P45. The 2nd motherboard, the one i got from frys, was a GIGABYTE EP45-UD3P, The 3rd one i got, which was from frys, was a GIGABYTE EP45-UD3LR. So please, I really don't want to go out and buy another motherboard. Is it even the motherboard's problem? Is it possible there is a piece of hardware that is messing every motherboard it touches?
