New PC issue

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
My pc was working fine, untill i tried to put it in the case, ( i hooked it up on a piece of rubber) i put it in the case and it would start up then instantly turn off, so i hooked back up the old way, and now it still does it.

Spec

P8P67 pro
i5 2500k
antec 850 psu,
g skill 8 gig
gtx 580 2
wd hdds

im really worried, what can static do to your motherboard

Static can kill any sensitive electronics, ie. your whole computer. But to me this issue sounds like a bad ground. Did you install the motherboard standoffs in your case?

Well you need to use the motherboard stand offs. Otherwise you're going to fry the motherboard when you turn it on. They are usually gold plated little screws that are screwed in and under the motherboard.

ok those were in it, do you think its broke, it just turns on then off and the cpu led light comes on then it goes out, then the ram led light comes on and then it turns off, but the green light is still on because the power is switched on.

Things to try:
Double check all you modular plugs to make sure they are seated.
Double check the all the modular plugs are in the right spots (PCI-E, CPU 8Pin, ect)
Strip the system down to bare minimum and see if it boots.
Remove CMOS battery and/or use CMOS reset button if it has one.
