PC won’t start.

I’ve made sure that all of my plugs are seated and in the correct spot (from what I can tell) but I can’t get my system to start at all.

Check your RAM is seated properly.

Check your case front panel connectors are right.

Test your PSU to make sure the fan starts spinning.

Confirm you ran power cables to everything. Should be 24 Pin & 4+4 CPU to mobo, power to GPU if necessary, SATA power to any drives.

Jump your motherboard with a screwdriver by bridging together the two PWR_SW pins to test it without the case front panel connectors.

RAM is seated proper, I’ve an intel build so my jfp1 is one block and seated fully. ATX_PWR1 and CPU_PWR1 are also seated. PSU also works.

When I tried to jump the Mobo, there was no reaction, does this mean I need to get a new one?

Is the PSU switch in the correct position?

Also, double check the outlet itself. Plug something else in and see if it works.
