    Hi everyone so i bought a motherboard a asus p867 deluxe i just got it. Upon removing the plastic cap i saw that a few of the pins were bent on it. So i went to the internet and found a tutorial on how to bend them back with a mechanical pencil so i did so.

    Now i don't have a case seeing as i am recieving it tomorrow so i decided to breadboard it. Okay now here is the problem i have i plug the psu in and the power turns on then off immediatily. I have tried two PSUs and they both do the same thing so i am curious on how to do it. Also if your wondering how i am turning it on the motherboard has a button for power so i used that. I have tried taking the battery out for a minute to reset everything and that did nothing at all. I wish to use my new computer i have had so many problems with it.

    Also i have recently recieved new internet and it seems for some reason windows firewall was blocking the internet and since i turned it off it is working perfectly. My question is why is windows firewall blocking connections?

    If the power turns on and off immediately, there's most likely a short somewhere. Also I imagine the bent pins don't help.

    All the more ammo for complaining to customer service. Maybe they'll refund you the MoBo and give you another one free - after checking the damn thing works this time.

    Hopefully newegg allows me last time they screwed me over basically saying thermal paste was on the socket and pins were bent, but when i recieved said item the things they said were wrong weren't even there. Hopefully i will have better luck this time.
