to be clear, you arent getting ANYTHING right? no fans, no beeps, no nothing.

if so - remove the front panel connector wires from the motherboard and use a small flat head screwdriver to jump start the board
make sure the psu is plugged in and make sure the screwdriver touches NOTHING but the pins.

you may have to try touching ever single combination of adjacent pins before it fires off


This is the first I've ever heard of doing this.

I got a hold of another power cord and switched it out and it kicked on! Off to go get windows 8.

Sorry to betray you after your help. If it makes you feel any better, I only paid $35.64 after taxes.

I ran the consumer preview on my laptop for quite a while. I didn't mind it on there but I wouldn't put it on my gaming rig.

Don't worry, it isn't a habit. Now if anyone wants to point me in the direction of a good place to get MS Office that would be appreciated.
