New Build Help Please

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok I just finished building this computer. My complete build can be seen below. When i switched my PSU you on in the back and presed the on button on the front of my case, the computer starts up. However, about 5-10 secnds later the motherboard and everything else completely shuts off and turns itself back on and continues to stay on after that. But also, it won't post. I get nthing on the monitor it just says no signal. The cables are all connected right and everything. The DRAM_LED light on the motherboard is continuously lit and ive done what the manual tells me to do if that is the case but it does not work. Any ideas on what to do?

You could have a bad CMOS battery, but I doubt it. Had a similar issue with my board, ended up RMAing 2 days after I got it. Try to boot with just one stick of memory.

Unortunately, I have tried to start it with one stick, two sticks, and all four sticks and none of it works.

Did you install the standoff's on the motherboard? Could be shorting out.

Even though you have checked your cables, make sure your hardware is all snug and secure.

I believe you said cables were tight but check again:

Check 4/6 pin
Check 24 pin

You said you've tried booting with different sequences of ram.

I see that motherboard has onboard video, try to post w/o your video card. I recently fixed a computer that basically has your problem. Power on, about 10 seconds Power off. He did not have onboard but i threw a random gpu laying around in and booted fine. Worth a try.

Okay so I got it to work. I took out the single RAM stick and put in a different RAM stick of the same order and it worked. I dont know if that is just a bad RAM stick or what but I will try to start it with the other two as well to see if that is the only one not working. If it is a bad RAM stick what can I do about it?

If the ram stick is DOA you will have to open a ticket for an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) and get it replaced either through where they were purchased or most likely through Kingston.

It doesn't really affect you now that you got it to post but for future reference. Not every bios/motherboard is gonna post out of the box throwing 16Gb of ram at it. Especially if the bios is detecting the ram settings incorrectly.

Okay so i forgot to say when I replaced the RAM stick I had also taken out the video card like SilentSoul_600 said to. Because now I tried booting with one, two, three, and then all four sticks of RAM and each one works without the video card in. Maybe the RAM stick wasn't pushed in all the way before im not sure. So what could be wrong with the VGA?

Edit: Also, the BIOS is detecting the memory as DDR3-1333 when it is 1600. Not sure why.

So it posts now with all 4 ram dimms but wont post at all with you 560 installed? If that's the case try the next pcie16 slot on the motherboard. If nothing probably a dead gpu. You did power the gpu I assume? As far as the ram you can set it to the correct speed and timing stated on the sticks in your bios.

1 more thing it could be changing the primary video display in bios from onboard to pcie. If that doesn't fix it you might have to reset cmos before it will display on the onboard again. There should be a clear cmos jumper on your motherboard or refer to your manual for help on finding it. Off the bed will check tomorrow. Good luck
