PLEASE HELP ME!!! Computer build issues...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, so I have recently purchased all the parts for my first gaming computer and set off to build it. When I was done and tried it out I had two issues that I have no been able to fix:
1) The computer turns on, and shortly after turns back on and stays on and there is NO beep when it boots(I donno if it is an issue or mabye normal)
2) Nothing appears on my monitor... Its dead black, I don't have a monitor yet so i tried the rig on 2 Tv's, I doubt that is the problem however. The hdmi cable I use is from my xbox by the way. The fans and led all work and so does my disk drive... Also my keyboard and mouse don't work when I connect them.

To fix the issues I have:
-Taken the RAM out and it beeps
-Replugged power cables and data cables
-Resettled the graphics card

My rig components:

Mobo: Asus p8Z68-v pro
psu: corsair tx750
cpu: intel i5 unleashed
graphic card:saphire radeon 6950HD
Hard Drive:western digital caviar blue 500 gb

So yeah... Please help I don't know what to do I looked online, and there is something about clearing the cmos but I can't find the jumper on the mobo.

Thank you.

Do you have the power plugged into the GPU? Does the GPU fan spin up?

There should be a button on the back that should let you clear your CMOS. Check out the second part of this guide:
http://support.asus.com/Troubleshooting/detail.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=1&m=P8Z68-V%20PRO&s=39&hashedid=n/a&os=&no=1723

If that doesn't work, try individual sticks of RAM if you haven't already.

Then, if that doesn't show you the issue, I would see if you could try another graphics card, maybe the integrated one.

If that doesn't do it, I think it might be your motherboard.

EDIT: And make sure that ALL of the wires are plugged in, I tend to forget the 4-pin into the motherboard by the CPU socket.

There shouldn't be a beep so dont worry about that.

The clear CMOS is a little blue jumper to the bottom right of the board that says CLRTC. Turn everything off and unplug PC from the wall. Move the jumper to the right two pins for roughly 20 secs (probably less but I like 20 to be sure) hold the power button down while counting (again probably not necessary but theres no harm in it).

There are a few LED's on the board that will stay lit if theres a specific problem. I think theres one for your RAM, your GPU's and one for your CPU. Check to see if any of these stay lit once your PC is turned on.

You could also try running from the DVI or HDMI port on your back panel to use your onboard graphics to eliminate a GPU fault.

Does your GPU power up? does the fan spin?

UPDATE: So I switched the RAM into a different slot and it booted and the mobo beeped, then it said something like Adapter 1 and then the screen went all wierd... What could that be now?

What do you mean weird? Like artifacts on the screen? If so that might be the graphics card, try the integrated chip on the CPU.


P.S. What is an i5 Unleashed chip? What model is it?

Yes I get artifacts all over the screen...
The cpu is a Intel Sandybridge i5-2500K 3.3 ghz

Yea, I would definitely try removing the 6950 and try booting with the Integrated GPU on the 2500k.

Well the culprit was the Ram, I moved it to a different slot and it worked! But now I get artifacts when I boot. My Gpu fan spins so it should be powering up I think... I get a message like adapter 1 but i goes off really fast...

As I said before. The motherboard you have does not beep (I own one!)

The beep is most likely from your graphics card. Continuous beep normally means that the power cables are not plugged in or there is a power related fault. Different numbers of beeps can mean different things. If you are getting artifacts then it deffinately sounds like a graphics card issue. I woud ensure it is properly seated in the PCIE slot (maybe remove it and reinstall) and make sure all the connectors are secure. You could try it in the slot below.

EDIT: Adapter 1 is your graphics adapter (graphics card). As people have said. Try using the processors in built graphics by using one of the ports located on your motherboard back panel.
