PC won't run. - Page 2

post #11 of 21
What's the mobo?

I had that problem because my RAM timings and speed weren't right i guess?

anyway, my mobo has a MemOK! button, hold that until it powers on.

If that doesn't work, its most likely the PSU

How could the RAM timings be wrong if my computer has never booted into BIOS?

I will try to press the MemOK! button and see if that does anything.

Thanks!

I actually had the same exact issue. Computer didn't want to boot.
Then...... I read the book.
It said stock RAM speeds could be wrong and the MemOK
will set the speed of the RAM where it is bootable, it may
take a few reboots though for it to find the right speed.
Then I clocked the RAM to its rated speed and it was fine.
It just needs to find a "SAFE" boot speed, then after POST
the RAM is set to its normal clock speed. What is your mobo and RAM?

Pull your CPU out and make sure it is installed correctly, and it doesnt have any bent pins, and the CPU power is plugged in. Make sure you have the RAM in the correct slots. Reset the CMOS. Its just a process of elimination. Try pulling one stick of RAM out, to test each stick. It could be the PSU, try testing it on another computer if you can. Also check to see if the PSU has a voltage selection switch and if it is set to your voltage.

My motherboard makes its own beeping sounds. When I took out the RAM, it beeped. Also what are the chances of my CPU being faulty? My CPU has no bent pins and neither does my motherboard.

My PC only turns on for half a second, I can't get it to POST/BIOS.

Could it be that maybe my PSU is faulty?

You would think it would not be the CPU. But I was just recently on another thread where the guy had the exact same problem: board would turn on for about 10 seconds, no post, then turn off. We tried to get him to test every single possibility we could imagine, and it still wouldn't work. Nobody could figure it out. Finally, he returned his CPU and got an exchange of the exact same model. When he put it in it booted right up. Turns out the memory controller on the cpu chip was faulty. We were all surprised, but it is possible.

try resetting your cmos, if that doesn't work, try each stick of ram individually. if not, well, i'd say its your psu

also, fill out your sig rig mate, it helps

I returned the motherboard and now I am just installing windows biggrin.gif

The only bad thing is that I had to remove 2 fans from the motherboard for it to work. Why is this? I only have 4 fans now (1 front, 1 top and 2 on the radiator at the back of my case).

Thanks guys!
