I just bought a whole load of stuff to build an athlon system. Its based around an athlon 800 and asus k7v motherboard with a 250w AMD approved psu.
Problem is, when i go to boot the machine, a warning light comes on 'Standby Power Warning', the fans and drives all start up for 2 seconds then the system dies again.
Funny thing is that all the stuff comes on no matter if i press the front atx power swith on or off. All i do is press the on/off swith on the psu at the back and everything comes on.
I'm wondering if its -
A)a 250w psu is not enough for my system (i have just basic stuff in the machine, nothing power draining)
B)something else i can't think of!
I admit it, i feel pretty dumb, can anyone help?
thanks in advance (fingers crossed)
