    New Motherboard doesn't work, please help

    Hi, my power supply for my bookpc died so I've decided to upgrade to get usb2.0 and possibly dual video support.

    I just purchased a PCChips M825LU V.72 MicroAtx with Duron 1.6 cpu. I got it off of ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...EWA%3AIT&rd=1).

    Well I hooked it all up and I got no response (no fans spin, etc). The MB has no light to say its on. Upon recomendation from another member here I tried another power supply, another stick of ram, and another case (in case it was the buttons). I have the manual and know I'm connecting the correct pins for power (6&8). I'm really angry cause I wanted this ready for the meet (and I can't live without my carputer).

    Someone help please. My AOLIM is mhafterTF.

    If there is any one in Hudson County, NJ or NYC who would look at it as well, I would be appreciative. Thanks!

    I noticed that other plug. I'll try again when I get home. Are you saying both atx and the square connector are required?

    Should the fan then spin?
