No display & false power ups -- new build

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
So finally got my computer completely together. Two problems:

1. No display. Using an HD 6990 watercooled. Really, REALLY don't want to take it apart to see if it's the GPU, so if anyone knows another way to diagnose.

Interestingly, it was no-displaying for awhile, and then randomly displayed, and then went I went to reboot, it turned off and never came back.

2. False boot ups -- system will power up, power down in about 5 seconds, then power back up permanently. I think I've diagnosed this as a faulty green wire (it seems really loose, and the paperclip trick avoids the false boot), but if anyone has any other suggestions...

More concerned about 1 than 2.

Using asus p8p67 mobo, silverstone silent m 1000w, radeon hd 6990, i5-2500k.

Would it make sense for the power supply to be messed up (green wire is really odd looking and flimsy), so whenever it gets to the point where things ramp up, the computer shuts down because of the faulty connection?

I only ask because the GP Diagnostic card shuffles through the codes, then when it stops on 00, it quickly shows FF and the power shuts down. Never before that -- always at that exact same point.

It's not unusual for a P8P67 board to double-boot. A LOT of people's boards do this.

Are any of the LED's lit up on the board after you power up? When you power up it should cycle through all the different Red LED's on the board, but if everything they're checking works correctly they power down. Are there any red LED's that stay on and/or blink? Post here which ones they are (reference the Mobo manual and it will tell you which LED's mean what) and we can help you.

Now it won't even single boot. It cycles through the different LEDs, as you mentioned, and right when you think it's done (shows 00) it then quickly flashes FF and shuts down.

Before, the light to the right of the 24 pin connector/ram would stay on, showing either error 30, 38, or 45.

No beeps from the speaker.

Earlier it was showing error 45, and then I realized the ram was really lose so I turned it off, pushed the ram back in, and thats when I got to the BIOS. Now, I can't get to the BIOS. It cycles through the lights and then shuts off (though the lights on the gp diagnosis card stay on).

Side note: It's p8p67 ws revolution. dont know if the specific one makes a difference.

Hmm. I was going to say double check that the RAM is seated correctly but it sounds like you already did that. Are you using DIMM slots 1&3 or 2&4? Try switching the slots you are using then reboot.

However, before doing all of this, reset the CMOS. Reset it then try and boot. If it doesn't work then try what I said above and use the two RAM slots you're currently not using. Double check *all* PSU wiring and make sure connections are secure.

OK, so, I reset CMOS. Now power stays on. I still get no display, however. It cycles through the lights and stops on the one nearest the SATA 6gb plugs and sits at "A0"

Edit: There is also a short beep before displaying A0. It displays 03, a very short blip beep, and then goes to 29 for a bit, then goes to A0 and sits there.

Remove GPU, use onboard, go into BIOS, set primary display adapter to PCI-E/PEG and disable onboard graphics if you can. Save and exit. After the system reboots, press the power button to shut it down. Install the card (make sure your monitor is plugged into it) and see if it works now. Make sure all your power connectors are in, for all your hardware.

I'll give this a try.

This is the HDD LED indicating some sort of error/failure with the HDD segment of your build. Make sure all your SATA connectors are fitted securely and that your hard drives/optical drives are connect to your PSU. Alternatively, if you're not using SATA III and have SATA II drives, hook them up to SATA II ports instead of SATA III. Also, make sure they're hooked up to the Intel SATA ports, not the Marve controlled ones (look in your MoBo manual, it will tell you which ones are which).
