Assembled computer, boots up for 4 seconds - Page 3

post #21 of 50
Do you actually see the motherboard splash before it turns off? It could be a RAM or power supply problem.

I wouldn't point my finger at the CPU this quickly since they are rarely the fault. Though you should probably check if any pins are bent on the socket (beneath the processor chip).

I've checked the pins and they all seemed fine.

I don't see the motherboard splash. I'll say it like this: When I turn my screen/pc on at the same time, my screen doesn't find anything and goes into sleep mode while my computer endlessly reboots (and this happened on both the gpu and onboard gpu)

my sisters sandy machine did this once, I reseated the memory and it fixed it. Try the memory.

I see you mentioned earlier that it beeps before turning off.

Read this and let me know if it helps.

Else, it could be a RAM problem. Try the sticks in another PC (or reseat). My PC didn't boot first time (turned on then off!), so I switched the RAM slots they were in and it booted fine.

i'll try the RAM.

Just to be 100% sure, the blue ones are 1 & 3 right (I should start with one ram stick in the first blue one?)

Manual only said to use 1 & 3 but never explained which color is which.

First time, I put my ram in the slots that would be the blue ones on that board. Then after switching them to the equivelant black slots it worked fine.

Move your RAM to the black slots.

Ok,

I tried one ram stick on every slot, and the other ram stick aswell. Same problem.

I have noticed a small "wine" sound coming out of the PSU though.

My new XFX whines too, I doubt its that.

And its not your power/reset switch, these two switches just bridge two pins so you cant get them the wrong way round.

I'm thinking CPU or motherboard problem. No beeps from internal speaker when you turn on?

Just put basics on the board and get a post. CPU and RAM. Add GPU, post. Add HDD, post. All 1 at a time to see if there is a hardware culprit. Sometimes mobo are funny looking for hardware.

The problem is, as I described already, that I can't even get it to post using the basic requirements (RAM and cpu/heatsink/fan)
