Brand new system won't start

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
hi,

i am currently building a new system with these following parts.

i5 2500k
z68xp-ud4
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB DDR3-1600 CL9
xfx radeon 6950 2GB
corsair TX650
samsung spinpoint F3 1GB

i have installed everything and started it up, started installing windows7 and waited for about an hour for windows to finish installing. when windows was almost finished installing, the computer went to restart itself. then after that the computer has failed to power up. it starts to power, the fans start to spin, the lights on the mobo come on and after 2 seconds it turns off. has any1 ever had any similar problems? and if so can you let me know what you have done to fix it?

Have you overclocked anything before trying to install windows??

Maybe try resetting the bios?

just looked at the manual and it says:

Quote:
• BIOS will emit a beep code during the POST. Refer to Chapter 5, "Troubleshooting," for the beep codes description.
• It is recommended that you not alter the default settings (unless you need to) to prevent system instability or other unexpected results. Inadequately altering the settings may result in system's failure to boot. If this occurs, try to clear the CMOS values and reset the board to default values. (Refer to the "Load Optimized Defaults" section in this chapter or introductions of the battery/clearing CMOS jumper in Chapter 1 for how to clear the CMOS values.)
Have you got a speaker connected? That may shed light on your problem.

There is no onboard speaker you need to put one in!
If it was me I would remove everything and start again, maybe try it without the GPU and use the onboard HDMI so there is one less thing that can go wrong on boot.

Hi, Nith is my friend and the system is mine. We did have the onboard speaker, whenever we boot the system, we hear a couple of clicking sounds, after 2 seconds the loop begins(again). We already reseated everything, tried it from scratch. Tried with one stick of memory then two stick, then 1 stick on every slot, with gpu then w/out gpu. My psu isn't the problem for sure because I hooked it up with my old rig and it worked well. Anything else I can do? Moreover, cpu fan and the cpu as well works well as the fan does spin and we didn't experience any overheating or anything like that.

EDIT(addition): I also hooked up my sister's ram to my motherboard and still the system didn't work.

Looking at the board there is no speaker built in but I may be wrong. The jumpers for the speaker are with your F.panel set where the power switch and such are, I very much doubt you have a speaker. If you have a speaker on another PC then use it in this one. If there is a fault then the MOBO will tell you the problem on post. On the board I have there are LED's for CPU GPU HDD etc so finding the problems are easy. My GPU and HDD's work fine but when I have messed around in the BIOS I have had NOPOST also and it has been the GPU and BOOT HDD with no real reason!

Take out the BIOS battery unplug MOBO power (unless you have an easier way of resetting the BIOS) and start again.....

You may need a speaker though....

thanks to the mobos with onboard led indicator, things like this would've been solved faster..

As for OP, check if evey plugs are connected (ie 24pin, gpu, 8pin).. Tighten everything.

or unplug the pc from the wall and remove the CMOS battery as stated above, that will clear everything.
