New Build Boot Problem

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi folks,

Here is the spec - http://www.scan.co.uk/savedbasket/7a...de05eaf27b65d8 - it's also in my sig.

In short - 2500k, P8 Z68-V Pro

I've had some new parts delivered today and set to work, however I have a problem. It wont boot properly, when I power on it goes on for about 2 seconds, off then on again (seen this on a few types of PC), but when it comes on this next time it doesn't complete (or start?!) the POST. I don't get any beeps and no screen output. The red CPU light on the motherboard stays on, indicating that is the problem.

I removed the heatsink and reseated the CPU, however this isn't made any difference.

Any ideas?

I notice there is a few switches on the motherboard, I was reading in the manual that the MemOK! button can help boot with RAM problems, is there anything similar I can try? Anything I can reset / enable?

Thanks in advance for any advice

Cheers,
Rab

Are both the 8-pin and 24-pin power cables plugged into the motherboard?

I'm an idiot.

I'd rather not further comment, all I will say is, it's now working.

Thanks

Haha - it's always something glaringly obvious when you look back on it
