Brand new system won't start - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Did everything you guys said, still the same thing. On and off, kinda frustrating from a brand new system/components.

I just built my first rig last night. I had trouble starting it up as well. I just took everything apart and started from scratch and took my sweet time.

So are you still having problems with starting up? I really can't be bothered going back to the place where I bought it but have to study for an upcoming test tomorrow so -_-

UPDATE: Did everything from scratch, still the same. Hooked my psu to my old computer, it worked fine. Tried resetting the CMOS, taking the battery out and when that didn't work I used a jumper for the motherboard's CMOS, still no luck.

Is it my PSU not being able to support my system?

Your PSU is more than enought for that setup.

Question: You stated that you hear a clicking noise. Can you isolate where that noise is coming from?
Is it the HDD?

remove everything from the case and start from scratch. keep the video card installed and go into the mobo bios check to see that everything is set correctly. then remove the one stick of ram at a time to see if the ram is defective. then install the hard drive if the ram is fine. i suspect the problem could be the ram or mobo. also make sure your mobo standoffs are tightened correctly because that could cause a short in the system. just my

Try your memory!!!! I had the exact same problem with mine. It'd boot up for a few second, either it'd hang on the bios loading page or it'd turn on for like 5 seconds, then turn off, repeat till who knows when. You probably have your memory in dual channel I take it, Slot 1 & 3, or whatever your mobo spec it to be dual channel. Try putting the memory in different slots. If you have 2 sticks, try just 1 stick in the first slot, typically the 1st slot is best for a good bootup. If it boots, try the two sticks in 1 & 2 slot, find out if you have a dead memory slot.

I learned that my motherboard had 2 dead slots, 3 & 4 slot, so I couldn't have dual channel memory. Had to RMA it. Give that a try! Hope it helps!

That clicking noise is just from the onboard speaker when I boot the system. Its not from the mobo =/

Did that 3 times already, with gpu, without the gpu, dual ram, single ram, every combination of both on the slots (dual, single), the mobo isn't in the case. its just on top of the box. Didn't see any surface on the mobo that had a sign of short circuit. The system doesn't even go to BIOS, as I stated from previous posts, it goes on then off after 1~2 seconds. =/

I also tried my 2 rams in my sister's computer, it works fine. I tried putting 2 of her memory in my mobo and still didn't work, same process, all slots/all combinantions. =(((((

Take the cpu cooler off and inspect the socket closely with a flashlight, looking for bent pins.

If you tightened down the cpu cooler uneven, or over tightened it, this may be the problem.

The cpu is fine and the sockets are perfect. =/

It's your motherboard.

JUST did an RMA on my Gigabyte board because of the same issue. It's called the boot cycling error, pretty common in the Z68 Gigabyte boards from what I hear and from personal experience.

Just RMA it and try the new board out or get a refund and get a different brand.
