Computer won't boot,no POST just the power light is blinks


OSNN One Post Wonder
I put together a new Rig with new everything except a power supply and when i turn it on it comes one for a bit no post no nothing than it goes off and the power light will start blinking, constantly, once a second or so. I hit the power button, nothing happens. I unplug the computer, plug it right back in, and still the same problem. So i took it apart but together my old Comp using the old power supply it works fine i'm on it now.

So i took it back to the store the did a test it works fine there soon as i get it back home the same thing happens whats is going wrtong can any one help?

I use same Video card in both XFX Radeon HD 5770
1) There are a bunch of different power supply hook up methods over the last few years. Check the manual and make sure you have all of the correct power cables plugged into the right places on the MB. You may have to buy an adpater cable to have the right cables for your MB.

2) When you mount the MB in the case you must have the metal mounting screws centered properly or they can short out the power supply and the system won't boot. To make sure I always put the system together ona desk before I install inthe case.

3) The power switch and reset buttons must be on the right MB headers.
