So that leaves me with only two components I have not tried swapping out – the CPU and the memory. I’m curiouse if maybe since it was an AMD based system, if the PSU was special for the AMD mobo and processor could it have possibly shorted out the motherboard over the past month it was installed. Could some sort of memory incompatibility account for this type of behavior? I’m hoping maybe someone on this forum can help me out. 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. If I connect both the 4-pin connector and the pin connector to the MoBo, the board seems to power up for about 1 second and then immediately powers off. I will work on re-connecting these fans in an hour or two when I get home.

First, check your video card, if you can, in another system. Ketxxx Heedless Psychic Oct 3, 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”.

Oddly, they state you should connect “PWR1” to the “auxiliary case power supply”. I’ll probably try removing everything and building it back up again just to check. Does anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this problem?
I’m think maybe I should move on to a different mobo, maybe another brand would work better? You must log in or register to reply here. I’m hoping maybe someone on this forum can help me out. Has vidro ever seen or heard of anything resembling this?

This is my first venture into building my own PC, and so far I am about several hundred dollars and only have a large paperweight to show for my efforts. I then hit the power button and got the nfodce4m-a same results – the fans spin up for maybe half a second at most, then everything shuts down.
Is it time to return the mobo for a replacement? I tried to more changes today – I disconnected the wcs no changeand I purchased a really heavy-duty power supply, thinking that maybe the W PS might be related to the problem. I’m attaching a photo, in the hopes that this might expose my problem.
I don’t believe I’m getting a full system power up though, since I get no signal to my monitor, nor does the keyboard seem to be getting sustained power. If i connect my CPU fan to the wrong connector then my system won’t boot.
It’s brand new, with pre-installed aluminum heatsinks on each jforce4m-a. I have a new video card on the way, just in case that might be vido of the problem.

Could some sort of memory incompatibility account for this type of behavior? Unfortunately, after hooking this up I got the exact same results I’ve been getting all along. The fans spin up for about half a second, and nforce4j-a it. That’s why i asked if you connected al the cables correct.

If I pull the 4-pin power connection off the mobo, the fans spin up and stay up, but I doubt the board is getting full power, and I don’t hear the speaker beep.
Uggghh, I was hoping we were onto a solution here Recently it just stopped working. Joined Jan 29, Messages 9, 1. Members Current visitors New profile posts Search profile posts.
