    d945gclf2 won't boot

    Guys... I just hooked up my new motherboard, installed Windows and the motherboard's drivers, shut it down and went to bed. I come back the next day, and it will not turn on. no matter what I do, it just will not do anything. I did notice that one chip on there near the usb ports gets EXTREMELY hot right after i plug in the main ATX power connector. What in the world could have happened?

    a few questions:
    do you mean it doesn't even post?
    any beep codes?
    do the fans run?
    what power supply are you using?

    I'm talking about the fans don't even spin. I'm using a power supply from a tower I have at home for testing. It's a 20 pin, and I have it seated correctly, and I also tried it on my old MB and it boots just fine.

    So, no beeps, no fans, really hot chip right behind where the usb and lan slots. Totally odd.

    Did you forget to plug in the P4 (2x2) power connector?

    Once. Then I turned it off, pluged it in and it booted fine... that's when I installed Windows. Now that chip gets way hot right when I plug in the main power and will not do anything.

    Maybe that one time I tried to boot it w/o that P4 connector damaged the MB like it says could happen in the manual for the MB?

    I fried mine, I am pretty sure it was by note having that connector in. The chip I fried I googled the model number and found that it was the voltage regulator for the cpu...

    Had to buy a new one, sucks.

    I've got a quick question for you... When the mobo is off, yet the power supply is still plugged in, do you know if that green LED by the 20-oin power connector is on all the time or does it go off? I have mine plugged into a regular desktop psu and it never goes off... even if I turn the computer off (when it was actually working that is).
