I just followed the instructions at Paul's KT7 webpage to upgrade my bios to YH on my Kt7-Raid and it went perfectly. I then pressed F1 to restart and the computer just shut off. When I press the power button it powers up for a couple of seconds and then powers down without a beep or anything. Did I kill something? I did clear the cmos and still nothing. Any suggestions or did I just make a nice paperweight out of my mb? Thanks.
Did you try booting it up while holding down the Insert key?

Yeah, nothing. It powers on for only 2-3 seconds and then shuts off. This is strange. No beeps, nothing.
I finally figure out the boot problem. I had the fan plugged into the wrong header. I finally get through the bios and now need to reconfig my overclocking. I learned something valuable today.
Did that once. Almost drove me crazy. It only takes once to learn that lesson.
The only way I figured it out was through a google search and a couple of hours of research. Finally, I read it on Paul's site in the troubleshooting section and I didn't even realize there was another fan header there due to cable clutter. Maybe the Easter Bunny will bring me a new Antec case!
