    I have a Micro ATX board (Acer V76M) that I want to fit in an ATX
    It works fine with a 145Watts Micro ATX case/PSU but do not power up
    using the new ATX PSU.
    I tried the same with a MS-6154 micro ATX board and the same happen.
    The Micro ATX PSU that works do not carry the white wired -5Volts
    while the new PSU does ! The new 300W PSU works fine with a standard
    ATX MB !
    Did anyone experienced such a problem ? It seems either the MB kill
    sthe new PSU or the power consumption is too low (MB has video and
    audio and a 466 Celeron II CPU).
    Any idea ?

    I have 3 different brands of m-ATX boards and all work with a regular
    ATX PSU. Biostar, Chaintech, and ASUS.
