    new build wouldn't start because motherboard power supply was loose. now 3 case fans and cpu fan start for a second then turn off. motherboard light stays on, but fans do not start again until you turn the power on and off again. checked that all cables are tight. could it be the motherboard? it got dropped hard on the table top (my first build) or something else? thanks so much Paul, you inspired me to build two Ryzen 3 systems but I'm having trouble turning on the computer. Should I build the second one, and that way we will know if it's the motherboard.

    Can anyone tell me why do you still need the windows product key? Thanks

  • LightTrack

    Why wouldn't i just use the partition selection screen to put it on the SSD drive i want to put the Windows on? Isn't that the best option anyway? Why would i delete the other drives?

    Idk why but on my new installation (after days of trying to find the solution) I found out I didn’t have the Microsoft redistribute packages!!! I couldn’t run applications like heaven benchmark or certain interfaces. Insane frustration, CHECK THIS ALWAYS, NEW INSTALLERS!
