    The wires from your power supply fits two different ways, does it make any difference if you switch them around?

    I didn't try switching them around, but I will give that a shot. the mobo and psu came already connected when I bought it from itx-depot. The strange thing is that it worked fine the first day, but now im having the turn on issue as mentioned before. could there be a j8 issue? is there a way to fix that myself if it is? I want to avoid having to send it back if that is the problem.

    thanks!

    I think there's a setting in the BIOS on what to do upon power failure, change that to ignore or resume from power failure, as I think it helped someone fix their problem (on a different M/B but similar problem).

    Super! I will give those two suggestions a try this evening and report back. Hopefully it will work.

    thanks!

    Okay, I changed the bios to resume on power failuer and also tried swaping the motherboard power switch wires. It appears that the wires were connected correctly originally since it did not work at all once I switched them around. I also tried setting a couple other jumper options and it seems that functionality of the psu works correctly. The only issue is that with the j8 connected, it powers the motherboard up for about 3 seconds then shuts it back down. The motherboard will only stay on if J8 is disconnected.

    Any other thoughts on this or do you think this psu is toast?

    Thanks!

    I had a problem with an M3 atx where the jumpers werent holding on to the pins tightly enough to make a reliable connection, hence it was getting different jumper configs each time I booted. This scrambled the info on the psu so that when I did get the good jumpers, it still didnt boot as it was supposed to when they were set properly.

    I googled and found a manual (didnt have one when I got the PSU) wich showed that if you jump the last two pins on the bottom row (not up and down, like normal, but side to side) it would reset the PSU. That worked. When I reset it, then put the jumper back to the setting I wanted, it booted correctly.

    Dont have any info on what would reset yours but if you can find it it may help.
    PDP1170/TRS80/Atari800XL/Amiga500/286/486/P2/P4/C2D/i7 still a newb (but an old newb, been doing this a while) working my way up to "Complete Newb"

    Thanks Jistari. I have not found any info on being able to reset an M2, but I will keep looking. Like BlackStealth mentioned, I may just need to contact the seller and see what they say. Thanks again!
