    Unplug everything from the motherboard and the power supply except the CPU and memory. Try it. Also try without memory, and finally without CPU.

    Are you sure the power button is working and plugged in correctly? You could try shorting the pins with a screwdriver.

    I tried it last night - and still nothing, going to try it later with a different PSU... have sent scan a customer services e mail.

    just really frustrated as was hoping to build a nice rig this weekend

    So I have had a reply for Scan, with a list of things to try... going to give them a go and see where I am... hoping it is something simple that I have done wrong.

    So just installed my old power supply into the system - and it boots... so guess I will be entering Scan's legendary RMA system
