Mystified: Core i7 PC won't POST, nothing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi fellow OC-ers:

Earlier I restarted PC, but instead it just shut down. Now it won't POST and I'm at my wits end. Tried the following with no success:
  • reconnected all wires (24-pin, 8 pin, molex ect.)
  • tried another PSU
  • reseated CPU
  • cleared CMOS (battery out for 30mins)
  • ran with 1 stick of RAM

The board displays shows its getting power (in off mode). When I power on the fans move slightly and the CPU LED flashes, but nothing else.

Any advice apppreciated.

Specs:
Intel Core i7 2600k
Asus P8P67
4GB Corsair XMS3
eVGA GTX580
Corsair HX850w

some models dont clear cmos unless you do the clear cmos jumper, or with power removed and battery removed, press and hold power button for 15 seconds. someone else(2 people) posted about having this board and having the same type of problems. i believe it ended up being a corrupt bios. dont quote me, ill do some research and try to link to those if i find them.

EDIT: found it and i was wrong, sorry. the guy who posted in another thread to inform the op of the possible connection had your board and somehow thats all i remember.

Do you have another GPU to try?

Yes I tried battery out+jumper clear, as well as battery out, and also just jumper clear without removing battery.

Tried older GPU still nothing (press power, fans move slightly, CPU LED flash but no POST)

I had the same issue with my P8P67 EVO, turned out to be a bad motherboard AND cpu. Do you have a mate or a PC shop nearby that you can test each part in?

I had the same issue with my first P8P67. Exchanged it for another one as nothing I did fixed it.

Here is a link to my thread about the same issue.

RMA it is. Finger X-ed its "just" the mobo and not CPU / RAM as well... so much hassle.... cheers for all the suggestions
