Biostar M7NCG 400, No 4 Pin Power Plug
I ve got a little problem with this mobo, please help asap guys!
I recently bought this mobo from Newegg. It is Biostar M7NCG 400.
Reason I bought is that my Epox 8RGA mobo died (famous FF error) on my AMD rig.
The problem is:
There is no place on this Biostar mobo for the 4 pin plug from the power supply. I connected the processor(20 pin) plug and the cpu fan, the seem to work fine(at least the fan). I even tried with a brand new WD Hard drive and with memory sticks that I was sure they worked(I am using them right now on my other PC). So I know the problem is not the HD nor the memory. Its got on-board video. It just does not boot. When I power it up, the cpu fan starts working, I hear the hard drive start working, keyboard lights come on when it first starts but nothing later on, no caps luck no num lock etc..., and nothing on the monitor. monitor light keeps blinking. I put a PCI ethernet card on it to see if lights on it would light up but they did not. So I am assuming there is no electric going into mobo. What am I supposed to do? Is there special adaptor or something that I need to get? Or a special power supply? Please help guys! Thanks.

I checked everything again, my other computer dont have the 4 pin connector either but it works fine. So ,I think this is just a bad board. anybody has ideas, or suggestions before i send it back?

I have build several boxes based on that board, no it does not need the 4 pin to power it up. It even power up with cheap psu which normally comes with cases. No look for other possible issue such as ram, cpu and memory before rma it.
Did RMA one of them but after the fact could have been a bad memory.
