In this guide we'll go over the general troubleshooting steps to go through if you have a newly built PC that won't power on/boot/POST. Whether you're a first-time builder or experienced, it's not uncommon to run into some snags or miss something minor in your build. This guide should cover all the basics.
I found the solution to my MOB not posting! In step #5, my CPU power cable was not installed. Although I had asked the question with tech support, "Does the MOB supply power to the CPU?", which wasn't a discriptive enough question; that individual could not figure the problem out. My CPU fans were working (separately connected to power on the MOB ASUS B550-F) and I sent him four pictures as well; in the end the tech assumed the CPU power cable was installed. But that is okay because I am 71 yrs old and having fun with my very first build process. When I am asked what am I doing in my retierment , I say "well I am "ALMOSTAGAMER", which leaves most people with a blank stare.
