    another disappointment - motherboard

    I got a Via EPIA M10000 for xmas. i used it a few times and today i went to power it on and nothing happens. I'm using an AC powersupply, not my opus with no luck. When i flip the powerswitch on the power supply off the fan turns for a second like normal, but it won't turn on at all.

    does anyone have any suggestions?

    Yes, neither my Opus, nor my wired powersupply turn the Via on.

    I had that before on a normal system, if the board is in a case then just try to take it out power it up. Also make shure nothing is pluged into it like usb devices, pci card. Good luck.

    in a situation like this i would also recomend 1) goto sleep and things hopefully be better in the morning. 2) take the cpu out and put it back in[which you can't do] 3) file for an rma from where your parents got it and exchange it.

    I figured out the problem. Turns out i'm an idiot. Yeah, that's the problem

    I was connecting the wrong pins for the power on switch. THe manual and wiring diagrams are there for a reason

    thanks all
