Hi, recently i was forced to upgrade my system dramaticly. I was installing a new Power Supply and of course i had it switched on the american voltage... instead of the australian. Pop it was a crummy power supply there goes my motherboard, ram basicly the lot im not sure what is in working order at the moment. But anyway i replaced the motherboard, power supply, ram, and it was a costly project finally after 2 weeks i have all of the parts i need.
The problem is as i put my new system together i found the delight full system panel, i found what connections went were thanks to my manual and the good thing was i undetstood it. So i plugged everything up got all happy switched the power on at the wall looked at my machine and saw the green light on the motherboard so i pushed the power button at the front of the computer.... nothing, ecxcept a fast red flash at the light peice at the front of the case.... I didnt have a clew what it was i went over everything and check over and over, i havent a clew. The light on the motherboards on so it should be getting the power right?
Ok heres what i need some help with, is it possible to have a power supply at a W that the motherboard does not support ... it sayed recommended 240 to 300W in the manual and mynes a 450W. Here are my specs i want to get this damn computer working its been weeks -.-
