In the ECS K7s5A manual it says the Power sw wire goes on pins 1 and 3.
Doesnt work for me. It does however turn on if it's on pins 5 and 6. weird.
But when i turn the dang thing on the monitor light turns green then orange then green again and back orange, over and over. (with no display) The video card is good, i just tried it on another puter.
Does anyone have any ideas? Any help is appreciated. Thank You.

Welcome to the Mother Board!

Are you getting the single beep when the unit turns on? Hate to say it, but that mobo has been nothing but problems for most people. Make sure that all of your connections are good and that the video card and ram are seated all the way in. 8)

Wasn't there something at Newegg about the manual being wrong for that motherboard? There was a link to downloaded corrected version.

Check and recheck the Ram seating and the video card, it doesn't take much to knock it out enough to cause problems.

I took the CD-rom out of my system to put a DVD-rom in it's place. I didn't think I even touched the ram or video card. But sure enough when I turned my computer back on I had done something to displace the video card. Then after adjusting video card the RAM was goofy. Took RAM module out and reseated and all is well with the world again. :)

Use the pinout as stated on the board itself near the connectors, the manual is goofed up. HWJ had a posting about this in the Tech Forum but that one was lost during one of the less-than-welcome visit of some Brazilian kiddies...

I'd bet money Evasive is right.

Evasive is correct.
Ignore the wiring diagrams in the manual. follow the Pinouts that are printed on the motherboard itself.
You should be up and running after that.
