Just put together my first PC:
Asus A7V333(New)
MSI G4Ti4200 128 MB(New)
Kingston 512 MB DDR333(New)
AMD Athlon XP 2200+(New)
Quantum Bigfoot 12.7GB(Old)

Hit the power button for the first time, nothing. So i looked at all the connectors didnt see anything wrong, thought that i must have missed something so i took it all apart and put it all back together. Still nothing.

Fan connected to the motherboard? Most motherboards won't boot without a fan attached to the motherboard.

No lights on the motherboard?
Do the fans on the PSU even spin?
Is the <b>ON BUTTON[/b} connected correctly?
