I rebuilt my computer several months ago and the old non-reused parts went into storage. It's christmas time and my parents have been bugging me to help them buy a new computer, so I figured I'd buy a case and reassemble my old computer and give them to it. It's more than fast enough for them.
The only parts not from my most recent hardware refresh was the case and the PSU (I pulled a currently used hard drive out of my current system to use in theirs, it's too small for me).
I bought a new case, and recycled a PSU that hasn't been used in over two years and I believe it was working when I removed it.
However, the computer isn't POSTing. When I turn it on, I get to output to the screen and no beeps. I removed the hard drives, video card (MOBO has additional integrated), DVD-ROM and case fans (not CPU fan) but only to get the same result. Removing the RAM resulted in the appropriate beeps so I don't think the MOBO is bad.
Currently the only things plugged in is CPU (w/ fan), memory, PSU and PC-Speaker.
Any idea where the problem lie? Everything but the PSU was working a few months ago, could I still get the MOBO beeps if the PSU is bad?
