If I pull the 4-pin power connection off the mobo, the fans spin up and stay up, but I doubt the board is getting full power, and I don’t hear the speaker beep. That’s why i asked if you connected al the cables correct. I can’t seem to get customer support from the mobo mfg ECS , and the supplier I got this board from is horrible about returning calls when I call in, they are always “on the phone with other customers”.

I tried to more changes today – I disconnected the speaker no change , and I purchased a really heavy-duty power supply, thinking that maybe the W PS might be related to the problem. I don’t believe I’m getting a full system power up though, since I get no signal to my monitor, nor does the keyboard seem to be getting sustained power.

It is a new build, nfirce4m-a PS, case, mobo – everything. I’m hoping maybe someone on this forum can help me out. I’m attaching a photo, in the hopes that this might expose my problem. But I suppose if I get a replacement mobo I will have to deal with this anyway.

I’m curiouse if maybe since it was an AMD based system, if the PSU was special for the AMD mobo and processor could it nforce4m-q possibly shorted out the motherboard over the past month it was installed.


How about a problem with the CPU? In the meantime, I decided to order another mobo so that I could get up and running while waiting for the original to be repaired. Would having my various fans plugged into the wrong spots be causing problems?

Problem with power connection to ECS nFORCE4M-A mobo

Beyond the power supply connections for the peripherals, there are two main power leads coming nfoorce4m-a the power supply: Ahhh, now we’re getting somewhere. I guess it’s time to send this board back and try to get a replacement. The manual states that you should connect both the pin power supply and the 4-pin supply. Anyone have any thoughts?

So that leaves me with only two components I have not tried swapping out – the CPU and the memory.


The power supply it’s running is off an HP i recently baught and gutted for my new system. That’s why i asked if you connected al the cables correct.

I will try moving the Nforcd4m-a and see if that makes a difference The fans spin up for about half a second, and that’s it.
