Power looping?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This is my first post, I'm new to the forums and to computer building. Not sure if this is in the correct place, sorry if it is not...

I'm a newbie to the whole computer building world and recently decided after a year of contemplating, I would start the building. A few weeks ago I bought:

Intel i5-2500k CPU
Antec Neo 520w PSU
G-Skill Ripjaw 2x4gb 1600 DDR3 RAM
MSI P67A-G43 MB

After getting it, I set it up and it decided to power loop (continuing to cycle on and off when you hit the power button). Eventually, it came down to the fact that this only happens when my PCI ATI Radeon X1300 was plugged in, but I couldn't check to see if it was the card because I had no on-board graphics, no other card, and no speaker. I send back the MSI and ordered a GIGABYTE Z68A-D3H-B3.

I got the GIGABYTE board today and set it up with all the same hardware, and had the same power looping problem. After about an hour or two of multiple memory configurations, two different PSUs, and some messing with the CPU fan, I've got no idea what the problem is. I feel like it has to be the CPU or motherboard, but I can't really tell. If there is anyway to troubleshoot this or narrow it down to an exact piece of hardware, that would be great.

More info upon request.


I've posted (basically) this same topic and a previous on the Minecraft forums. Links if you wish to look:

Really, in this day and age, a PCI video card is kind of an enigma. Try something else. Anything PCI Express, no matter how cheap would probably be better. You have integrated graphics available on that board since you have the 2500K. Just plug your monitor into the analog, DVI, or HDMI on that board. It should be faster than a PCI X1300. Problem solved. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128502

I have that board right now, but it also will not start up. I have tried the GIGABYTE board with and without my gpu, and have the monitor hooked up to integrated graphics, but none of this really matters because the fans come on for a few seconds, turn off, and a few seconds later come on by themselves. I don't know if this is a motherboard issue, RAM issue, or CPU issue is the problem.

Remove the battery, and switch the jumper to cmos clear. Leave it that way for up to 24 hours, then try to boot with one hdd, one stick of ram.
If you can boot, update the bios.

Check your computer pin outs. Did you plug those in correctly? It could also be a bad i/o plate on the case
