I recently decided to build a new computer ofr general/low gaming purpose.
i have an ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard
After assembling everything correctly i press the ON button. for 1 second everything lights up, the fans spin. and then its gone nothing happens. i try to press the button ON again, but to get the same 1 second effect i have to unplug the PSU and hen plug it back in and it will get power for 1 second and then vanish. The motherboard green light is on.
please help and feel free to ask me what parts im using and guide me to fix this problem.
I think it might be the PSU since its only a 450W one. but i know it works. because i tried it on another system and it runs smooth.
do you think i need a new PSU to support this motherboard?
