It’s brand new, with pre-installed aluminum heatsinks on each one. The power supply it’s running is off an HP i recently baught and gutted for my new system. I’ll probably try removing everything and building it back up again just to check. I guess it’s time to send this board back and try to get a replacement. Joined Apr 23, Messages 3, 0. Uggghh, I was hoping we were onto a solution here

Ahhh, now we’re getting somewhere. From what I have read on some various web pages, that square 4-pin connector is for “Pentium 4” processors, and a few sites even state “if you are building an AMD system, leave it unconnected”. I’m hoping maybe someone on this forum can help me out. I’m curiouse if maybe since it was an AMD based system, if the PSU was special for the AMD mobo and processor could it have possibly shorted out the motherboard over the past month it was installed.

Beyond the power supply connections for the peripherals, there are two main power leads coming from the power supply: So that leaves me with only two components I have not tried swapping out – the CPU and the memory. I tried to more changes today – I disconnected the speaker no changeand I purchased a really heavy-duty power supply, thinking that maybe the W PS might be related to the problem.
But I suppose if I get a replacement mobo I will have to deal with this anyway.

Oddly, they state you should connect “PWR1” to the “auxiliary case power supply”. Maybe someone can spot a rookie mistake I’ve made It’s brand new, with pre-installed aluminum heatsinks on each one. So checking the connections, I do in fact nforxe4m-a the 3-wire lead from the CPU fan going to the 4-pin connection on the MoBo, and there are plastic parts on the connector that only allow it to mate up one way.

I have a new video card on the way, just in case that might be part of the problem. Can you provide more detail? Joined Oct 6, Messages 1 esc.
ECS NFORCE4M-A – 3.0 – motherboard – ATX – Socket AM2 – nForce4
Joined Mar 4, Messages 11, 2. I had nforce4m-q much come to the conclusion that my mobo had a problem, so I went and got an RMA for it last week.
The case had standoffs already, I don’t know nforce4m–a I would need spacers, or what “knobs” refers to. I will try moving the RAM and see if that makes a difference If I connect both the 4-pin connector and the pin connector to the MoBo, the board seems to power up for about 1 second and then immediately powers amm. I’ll probably try removing everything and building it back up again just to check.
Joined Oct 3, Messages 27 0. If I pull the 4-pin power connection off the mobo, the fans spin up and stay up, but I doubt the board is getting full power, and I ecss hear the speaker beep. Recently it just stopped working.
I’ll take a picture of my connections later this evening and try posting them to this site.
