Building my first PC was a little tough and overwhelming at first but I loved it and I learned a lot! I'm more of a software guy (being a programmer as a profession) so it took me a while to build it once I got all the parts. But, it was such a rewarding experience to finally turn it on and see everything working!
However, I had some issues at first. After a whole evening (5:00pm - 11:00pm) of putting it together I finally turned it on and........nothing happened. I was so frustrated! I asked my friend/brother-in-law to come over and help me (since he's built multiple PCs) and even he couldn't get it to work. We both decided that I had a defective motherboard because the PSU worked just fine when I unplugged it from motherboard and used the testing unit. I was really disappointed and I didn't want to believe it since I was waiting for so long and worked so hard! After a day or two of researching, many people were saying that it's pretty rare to get a defective motherboard. I tried to think of another possibility and I thought maybe was something wrong with my PC case's power switch. So I took a multi-meter and 2 staples to test resistance of my power switch and found out that my power switch wasn't working! I tested my reset switch and luckily it worked; so, I plugged the reset switch into the power slot on the motherboard and did a drum-roll as I pressed the reset button and I've never been so happy in my life! Everything worked like a charm!
