Failed start up

Failed start up
« on: June 11, 2010, 12:25:08 am »
Installed new motherboard, i7 CPU and 3x1gig stick g.skilled RAM in Thermaltake case with new 800W power supply. When powered system failed to start, instead all fans went for half second and stopped, 1 red LED eluminates during attempted start, located nearest to battery on motherboard, which says SB voltage, would this be the problem preventing my start up? i cannot find more information on this.

A failed start-up could be due to many things. If you could post your full system specs (Motherboard Model and Revision number, HDD's GPU etc.,) it would help with trouble shooting.

Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
