►Troubleshooting Tips◄
1) If your PC doesnt turn on (No fans are spinning):

- Flip the switch behind your Power Supply from O to | (SEE 15:50 in video)
-Make sure the front panel cables are connected correctly, most importantly the 'Power Switch' pin is in the correct spot. (SEE 12:51 in video)

2) Your PC boots, but screen is black (no output)

-Check and make sure the CPU connectors are fully seated in the CPU header labeled CPU_PWR1 on the motherboard. (SEE 10:56 in Video)
-Make sure the HDMI/Display port cable is connected to both the GPU and the monitor. If its connected to the back of the motherboard, its gonna display a black screen.
-Make sure the input on your monitor is the same as the source of your HDMI/DP cable. If the cable is in HDMI 1 port in the back of your monitor, make sure your monitor source input is set to HDMI 1.
-Make sure the PCI-E connector is hooked up to the GPU and that its fully seated. (SEE 10:28 in Video)
-Make sure all of your ram sticks are fully seated. If above fail, turn off PC, remove all ram sticks and re-insert them in again.

3) You boot to BIOS, but PC doesnt recognize the USB stick and doesnt boot to windows setup screen.

-Make sure all the USB cables are connected properly to the USB headers on the motherboard (SEE 11:05 and 11:56 in Video)
-Connect your USB stick to the back of the PC, do not use the front usb headers.
-Restart PC and hit F8 repeatedly until Boot menu opens up. Then select the USB drive on the list and it will boot straight from it.
-Installation on USB drive is either incorrect or corrupt. Re-install windows files on USB (SEE 14:53 in video)
