    the fans cpu fan on the heatsink isnt spinning up, and neither is the one on the graphics card.

    the green light on the motherboard turns on, but nothing happens on screen.

    led's arent on, no speaker sound, just the motherboards green light...

    did i already blow my cpu?!?! wtf is going on?!


    ps: A7N8X Deluxe, 2500XP stock HSF, hard drive is hooked up and ram is installed.

    make sure the mobo fan and the CPU fan is plugged in. Make sure the cords from the case to the mobo is correct, a few plugs need to be plugged in with the + and - in the right plug. If all thats fine, maybe its your power supply :confused:

    If all else fails...read the instructions :D

    the newer AMD mobos also have to use the 12V power cable like Intel does... otherwise the machine won't start.
