Well... always start with the obvious.

The two headers on your mobo for the pwr button, if you complete the circuit with a paper clip or screw driver will the unit fire up?

If so, it's definitely an issue with your power button. Maybe the cable was connected in reverse (negative to pos, pos to negative)? Or the button itself has a bad connection?

I'd start there. :)

are you connected to the right headers?
I've had mobo with misplaced markings, switching power and reset buttons.
BTW, for button connections, there is NO polarity...

Man, sorry OP. In typical nvnews fashion we've obliterated your thread. :( :lol:

Let us know if you get it figured out. Curious what the issue might be. :)
