One of those 'I cant see the wood for the trees' problems !
Im putting my server back together after taking it apart when we moved but it wont start.
I have the CPU in, the heatsink and fan on and plugged in (both have been removed with new thermal paste applied). The power is in the ATX_12v and ATX slots and one IDE drive. The same RAM is installed and I have a single IDE drive connected to the IDE1 slot.
When I hit the go button I get nothing. When I first put it together yesterday the cpu fan went about two revolutions very slowly and then stopped.
Ive tried different PSU's, different power cables, different power sockets, different ram and Ive removed everything (cpu, heatsink, ram and all cables) and reseated them all, but still no dice. Ive even tried a different battery on the motherboard.
Its bound to be something simple, but what can I have forgotten ?
Whats the minimum I need to get a motherboard started ? Ill try pulling things to see if I can get something.
