    PSU(power supply unit) is the same as power supply.

    The motherboard is likely to be the problem. When you press the power button it triggers a change of state of other circuits in the motherboard, which can be where the problem lies.

    I never thought about that, but it is possible, very rare probably, but still possible that the power button itself could be the problem. It is very little possibility, but still worth troubleshooting. You can use the multimeter to check the resistance(in ohms) between the 2 cables of the power button(PSW or PW), in 'pressed condition'. If it shows a value close to 0(e.g 0.1ohms), then the power button isn't the problem. Your other option is to use the power button of the GX-781 case. To do so find this connector in the case(see picture) and connect to the motherboard and then press the power button of the GX-781 case.

    I don't know which motherboard to buy. Looking at PC part picker none of the parts are compatible with M.2 SSD
  • ven98ven98 Posts: 4,046ACE Pathfinder
    Last thing you can try is too remove the RAM and try to boot without RAM.

    I'll try thT but what does it mean the SATA will be disabled. Does it mean I won't be able to access the slot.https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/
    Probably going to buy an antistatic wrist wrap to not fry this mobo.

    I have a lot of work and other information on my SSD. If possible I'd like to transfer that to mobo. I don't want to make unnecessary purchase such as windows for a new ssd
  • ven98ven98 Posts: 4,046ACE Pathfinder
    You don't need a disk with drivers, but usually every motherboard comes with one and it is not written in the specification. The motherboard is pretty much plug and play and you can update the firmware and drivers from the ASUS' website.

    Compatibility Notes

    • 'The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled.'
    Found this when I added an m.2 storage.

    You can take the SSD from the old motherboard and install it on the new one.

    Before purchasing a new motherboard try turning this one on without RAM.

    This motherboard has 6 SATA ports. That means if you install an SSD on one of the M.2 ports, that means one of these 6 SATA ports will be disabled.

    Ok, sure I'll try that. But I forgot to mention in both cases. When I plugged in the PW and 24 pinonto mobo. I heard a faint tik without anything powering on. That's besides the clicking noise of the pc button. It came like 1 sec after
