    epia 5000 & pw-60b issue

    Hey guys I have an EPIA 5000 mobo that is being powered by a PW-60B I bought from a friend. The problem is that the motherboard will not power up while using this power supply but when it is on my 300watt power supply it work s fine and will power up like expected. The PW-60B though will power up the power on LED and any hard drive or cd-rom that is hooked into it.

    Is this motherboard and powersupply combonation not going to work or am I not doing something right maybe?

    Sounds like not enough power.
    Are you using a 3.5inch harddrive or full size CD rom drive as I didn't think the PW-60 had enough power to run these. Try disconnecting them (including the IDE cables) and then boot it up.

    Well even with just the mobo and psu hooked up together I still get nothing.
