Never even heard of it!

But then pretty much all mobos are made by Foxconn.

Foxconn made components for Intel for many years, can they really be that bad? Best of luck with your new m'board!

Foxconn is where it all started, back in 1974 when an alien space craft the size of a city crash landed in China, bringing with it new technology. They use human slave labour to reproduce their alien tech, which they sell on to us.

Ok, I bought this: Mach Speed Technologies - The only motherboard with a Lifetime Warranty!
and it just happens to be the exact same(and made by the same company) as this: BIOSTAR
BUT I was ok w/that because it has agp&pci-e..... which is cool for testing gfx cards.

Slave labor. Gotta love the sound of that. We're catching up slowly and surely.

Get the mobo and put it on my dads rig with a new Ultra 500 w psu, 512 x 2 Mb of Patriot 3200 ram, and a 8800GTS and two ide HD. It won't start. No lights, no fans no nothing. So I thought DOA. Take it out, put my dads rig as it was and...It won't start either. Go by the usual process and nothing. I take the mobo outside the case, put it on my antistatic mat and ...voila. Start running and here I am. Haven't test the new mobo in this fashion but I smell something fishy around here. Maybe gnomes, witches, Klingongs or perhaps something worse.

In plain Spanish: if I put the mobo on the case it won't work, if I put it out of the case it would. Is a cheap case. Alguna idea?


PS: This sucks.

The new m'board may need to use different standoffs than the old one. If you already changed them to accommodate this new mainboard please disregard.
