I just finished assembling a desktop for the first time. The specs are:
- Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2H motherboard
- Core i3 530 CPU
- 4 GB DDR3 RAM
- 1 TB SATA hard drive
- 500 Watt PSU
As soon as I plug in the computer, the "phase LED" starts blinking orange and the system fan LED blinks while the fan "twitches". This continues until about three seconds after I unplug the computer.
This worries me a lot because I haven't even turned the computer on and it continues even after there is no power.
I did make sure the PSU is on the proper power setting.
What is causing this and how can I fix it? Is the motherboard dead?
