ASUS P67 Pro won't POST, suggestions/advice please?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. So I purchased a P67 PRO with my i2500k and my system refuses to POST. The first time I turned it on, I was able to load up to the BIOS, at which point the system shut down. I have since then been unable to get my computer operating properly, and cannot post. On the board, the CPU light is red, which according to the mobo manual means there's a problem with the CPU. When attempting to turn my system on, the fans will spin and the CPU light will become red, before the system shuts off completely. Nothing displays on-screen. After a few seconds, the system will then attempt to turn on again by itself and the fans will start up again, the CPU light will turn red. There is nothing on the monitor. The RAM led does not light up, and since my system was able to boot properly the first time (before shutting down) I do not believe it is the RAM.

My system specs are: ASUS P67 Pro, i2500k, 4x2 GSkill Ripjaws, Coolermaster 212+, Thermaltake 850w Toughpower PSU, Nvidia 9600GT.

I have tested the RAM configurations, and the problem does not seem to be the RAM. The power supply was working with my previous build, and I do not believe that is the problem either. Both the 24 and 8pin are plugged in properly. The GPU has been swapped out with another, as has the monitor, so I do not believe it is a GPU/monitor display issue. I have cleared the CMOS, used the MEMok! button, and tried booting from outside the case (on the antistatic bag and the box). Of the front headers, only the power switch is connected. I believe the CPU is seated properly and there appears to be no bent pins. I have reapplied the thermal past (Arctic Silver 5) and remounted the heatsink several times.

I have looked through many other threads with the same or similar problems, and it seems the most likely conclusion is that my motherboard is not functional, though there is a less likely chance that it is my CPU. Because the system was able to reach the BIOS the first time, I'm worried that my mobo may have shorted or failed for whatever reason, and was not DOA. If the mobo is shorted, is there anything I can do? If it is necessary to RMA the mobo, should I go through Newegg or Asus? Does anyone have any other advice and suggestions? Thank you for your time.

Some other threads with similar problems (some are old): Thread 1

Thread 2

Thread 3

Thread 4

Thread 5

Thread 6

Thread 7

I realize that there are many threads asking for help with POST and boot issues; I apologize if this is clutter but I would like the opinions of others before I have to RMA my motherboard, although that seems to be the general consensus. Thanks again.

Dead CPU

I'd bet $100 on it.
