Help Out a Newbie plz :(

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hi dear OCN members.

I today assembled my first pc, and im having some trouble with the mobo i beleive.

I am using a p67 extreme 4, and when powered up, it showed some red lights, and all worked, that was today when i first turned it on, then, for some reason it didnt show lights anymore ?, but video card and cpu cooler etc seem to work, and they are hooked to it.

For instance, it also make a sound when powered, but it doesnt turn on the lights anymore ?

When i connect it to a tv, nothing happens ?

Also the computer seems to turn off itself sometimes ?

Im just too newbie to figure all this out

Thanks for any help.

You have to give more details than that, man.

Which PSU?
Which RAM?

And by "connect it to a tv" you mean a computer monitor, right?

when you say lights you mean the lights on your mobo or your actual case? is your TV tuned into the correct channel? give a bit more details what parts used etc

Require more details as mentioned above. This is Red Leader, standing by. What did you change? Even the smallest thing could do it. Did you move it?

Edit: What about fans? Anything spinning?

The ram is corsair Vengeance, the motherboard Asrock P67 Extreme 4, Video Card Saphire Vapor-X 6870, and the cpu i5-2500k, psu is tx650w v2.

The tv is on the right channel, i have tried them all.

The motherboard lights i mean, the case lights are showing, for fan controllers and for power, when i first turned it on, some red lights appeared on mobo too.

Video card fan is spinning, so i dont know , fans on case also work.

Thanks again.

all on but no video, correct?

between the time you FIRST powered it up and the time it first started acting up did you move it or do anything at all?
Even the smallest bit of info might mean something.

Well the fans eliminate the power supply. Did you try another slot for the videocard, and try changing up the RAM (ie one stick at a time, using different slots, etc)

Well, i moved some things for fans to work after i first started it, but i beleive nothing related to mobo.

I did not try changing the ram slots or the vid card of place, but the video card is spinning, so it seems to work ?

If i turn the computer on through the button on the motherboard, it does start aswell, so im clueless as of what it might be.

Unfortunately I don't have the motherboard, but it sounds like it's not even POSTing...how's the power delivery to expansion slots without the onboard LEDs thing supposed to work O.o

I say unplug and replug everything on the board related to power, then try reseating RAM. first in the same slot, then both in alternate slots, then one at a time.

1 -> re-seat graphics card( try different slot if that doesnt work).

2-> reset CMOS(either with the jump pins or pull/replace the battery)....BE CAREFUL to ground yourself to the case.

We'll go from there.....
