Alllrighty, so I've started out on building my gaming rig from scratch. The parts I used:

Mobo - ASUS NVidia nForce SPP 100
Thermaltake Tsunami VA3000BWA Black
Aluminum Modern Dream Tower Chassis Computer Case
Blah blah blah I could go on but those two main things are causing me the most trouble as of right now.

Basically, when I press the power button, nothing happens, and I clearly have the Power SW cable connected to the right thing on the panel (99.9% sure) Yet, the green light for the mobo is on, clearly stating that the board is getting power, yet when I do press the button for power, nothing [bleep]ing happens. Can anyone out there help me out with this?

try flipping the connector the other way. You might have them on the right pins but in the
wrong orientation.

you could try to hit both points of the connection for the powerswitch with a flat head screwdriver and make sure it isn't the switch itself!

Well, that didn't work out either, I'm beginning to think my mobo's fried. Is there a feasible way to remove a CPU?

You may have to hold the power button down. For mine, it's like 1.5 secs I think. Worth a try.

If it was the cpu it would start up but then shut down after a few seconds. It's something to do with your mobo are you sure everything is connected abd secure? do you have the cpu fan plugged into the mobo?

Only one exception...if pins are bent and not making contact!

Yeah, now I'm just having a problem getting anything to show up on my monitor. Video card fan is operational and stuff, but nothing shows up on the screen. Sorry to bother you guys, but any explanation?

Oh, and I was wondering, is the on-board speaker cord going to be located in the case, the PSU, or the motherboard?

that question is kinda misleading ...I dont think the onboard has wires(soldered to mobo). With my DFI there is a spot near the powerswitch and HDD activity(on mobo) where i can hook up another speaker as well!

the onboard speaker is usually connected from the factory to the mobo(may need to be activated in bios). If you are installing a little black cylindrical speaker with 2 leads comming off it, it should plug in by the reset ,power,Hdd ,etc. Should say in manual, or may be in paint on mobo where it goes!
