[solved] First PC build won't turn on

Build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Mellotix/saved/
AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
ASRock 970M PRO3 Micro ATX AM3+/AM3 Motherboard
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory

Sapphire Radeon R9 390 8GB Nitro Video Card
Cooler Master N200 MicroATX Mid Tower Case
EVGA 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

Just assembled my first build and it won't turn on. And by turn on I mean I press the power button and nothing what so ever happens, not a continuous reboot loop or whatever as iv'e read in other threads.

I built it originally 2 weeks ago but still had the same problem of it not turning on so I took it to a "professional" to diagnose and he said my motherboard was dead. So I sent it back, got a refund, and installed my new one yesterday, and the problem persists.please help I just wanna play video games ;_;

Are your front panel connectors connected correctly? Find the two that are meant for the power button and short them with like a screw driver. See if it boots ghat way. Also like triple check ALL power connectors to make sure they are fully plugged in

Just did, still nothing

I think I may have put the Graphics card in the wrong PCIE slot. Does mine have x16 lane width?

I just built a system with alot of the same parts, did you do an overclock on your CPU?

Fix link plz

Not entirely sure what that means

Not sure if that fixed it but I posted all the parts.

ok so than you did not.

check your pushpins, make sure that they are plugged into the right pins.

also make sure all your MoBo power connections are plugged in all the way.

recheck the link It was on just the site, so you were probably seeing your parts

yeah i thought it was TOO similar to my build, because it was showing up as exactly my build.

did you connect the 8 pin cpu power connector aswell?
double check all power connections.

Should be fixed now

All MoBos are plugged in

yes thank you, make sure your ram is seated correctly. Can you post pics?

its most likely a power issue.
If ram or graphics card is not seated correctly, then atleast the cpu fan and eventual lights on the mobo should light up.

Re-seat the 24pin atx power connector and also the 8 pin cpu power connector

Here are some I took last night. can post more if necessary:http://imgur.com/gJsRaOT,27tt5rf,tLmXVYE,KdwIfjy,H3YyxNB,U8YbVfJ,7qqLqPk,alW664q,Ib0p8Qi

RAM is seated correctly in alternating slots in accordance with manuel

Umm... Is the power switch flipped to the on position on the back of the psu?

Try manually shorting the pins on the motherboard, do you know how to do that?
