Hey bettz I don't think you have the wires in question connected correctly. The connector with red and black wires labelled M/B PWR GND has to connect to the mobo PWRSW header. The arrow in the picture points to the PWRSW header where you already have something connected. I assume that the black & white wires are from the cases on/off switch. The +5V/GND pins are part of the 4 pin header for the speaker so you shouldn't be connected there.



The red & black wires connect to the PWRSW header on the mobo and the black & white wires get attached to a header on the back of the LCD display board. Should look something like this. If this doesn't help with powering on, using the mobo & case manuals I would re-check all of the connections you made hooking things up during the build. Also have you tried your PSU in your Dad's sytem?



While not the ideal solution you can get away with using a 2 molex to 8 pin adapter as long as you connect the molex connectors to different 12V rails on the PSU. You should really be using a newer PSU that has an 8 pin EPS +12V connector.

The 3 wires that are connected via the header are labelled hdd led,pwr & reset. The two plugs that are confusing me Gnd & Mb/Pwr do these connect into the back of the LCD screen? Is that what you meant? I can't find any other place on the motherboard where they would go

I've given uP with the psu it's been binned!! I've a be quiet one that I've ordered also had to buy a 3 pin to 4 pin molex as the antec psu had a 24 pin + 3 pin cable which I think powers the LCD screen hoping I can just use the 3 pin to 4 pin molex for that

I've just found this thread http://www.avforums.com/forums/computer-systems/727089-antec-fusion-wires.html

Where do the black & white wires that are already on the mobo 2 pin pwr header come from? The manual says that the black & red wires from your case should connect to the mobo pwr header. Just out of curiosity have you tried using the remote to turn on the system. I have read that early Fusion cases would only allow you to turn on by either the front button or the remote but not both. Maybe the black & white is for the remote and the red & black is for the front button.

I'll get back to you on that one when I get back home.

Right the Black & White wires that are in the PWR.SW header on the mobo look like they come from the Power button on the front of the case.The red & Black go to the reset button on the front of the case so they both look ok? The 2 single pins MB/PWR & GND come from the lcd screen :confused::confused: along with the 3 pin that goes into the psu
