  • asrock z68 extreme3 no power

    just bought new board and it will not power on, is it dead
    I've checked the psu on other pc and it works fine.
    i do not have processor installed could that be the problem, i was just making sure PSU was not faulty.
    but PSU will not power on with this board
    I've tried with atxv12 plugged in and not plugged in.
    please help .
    would the problem happen if the MB was grounded to case?.
    any tips would be helpful, i do not want to return this board i like it too much.

        I don't know of any mainboard that will boot unless you have a CPU and RAM in it ... but then again, i don't claim to know it all. But my guess is that is why
        My advice - never visit a short-url, no matter who gives it to you. You can't trust any source at any time when you don't know your target

          thanks. i think you might be wright about this,though a couple of peeps on other forums say you can start the mobo with no cpu
          so until i get the cpu or i get a reply back back from asrock support i will just wait and twiddle my thumbs.
