Coolermaster Igreen 500w doesn't boot

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Got this strange problem, hope you can help.. I have just bought a new psu (see subject) to plug in my system because my old PSU is making a lot of noise. I use it in the living room so I want a quiet system..

The specs:

Foxconn NF4K8MC motherboard

Athlon 64x2 4200 processor

kingston 2x 512MB memory

WD 320 Gb SATA-II hd

ASUS DVD+_RW burner on molex

My old PSU, a FORTRON BLueStorm 350w can handle the power but is making a lot of noise.

When I plug in the new PSU, my fan's are running and my harddisk light is lit. But the motherboard doesn't boot..

Went back to the shop, and got me another Igreen 500w, but still nothing happened.. What can the problem be, and can anyone help me with that?

Thnks in advance

Stupid question perhaps, but did you firmly plug-in the ATX cable and 4 pin?

Maybe one of those cable's isn't 100% in the mobo connector and then the system/mobo won't boot.

Yes, I did many times.. When I place back the old fortron PSU it works?!?

Stupid thing is, when I put in the Igreen the processor cooler is running, northbridge cooler is running, videocard cooler is running.

Try the old PSU again, there is a chance that some how a component on the motherboard somehow got screwed up. If so, I may be able to walk you through the fix before you attempt to RMA the motherboard.

No I don't hear a beep on the motherboard when booting,

I just put in the old psu en the machine boots and runs normally
