New Build - No Boot

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Put together the new system today. Gigabyte Z77-D3H and an i7-2600K. Everything is plugged in and when I hit the power button, nothing. Also nothing is lighting up on the motherboard when it's connected to power

Here's the rundown of what I've checked:

-Memory all seated firmly
-Mobo power connector seated firmly
-4-pin CPU connector seated firmly, one thing to note I'm using an 8-pin but that's never given me a problem before
-Mobo mounted on standoffs
-GPU connected to power
-HDD's connected to power
-PSU switched on

Which of the 'new build' things have I forgotten to check? If the board is DOA... not going to be happy frown.gif

Thanks guys

Ummm... what about the F_Panel?? Is that all in correctly?

Edit: I know its a pain to install, but it is necessary. You could of done it wrong, so I would try to re-install those wires.

Front E-Sata is plugged into last available SATA port and all power pins are plugged in. Even jump starting the board with a screwdriver produces no result.

Also I changed out the 8-pin CPU power connector for a 4-pin. Still nothing

Not what I meant!! You know the pins that run from the power button to the board?? Are those installed correctly?

Yep, power button, reset, HDD LED, and PLED's are all plugged in. Like I said, even when I pulled out the power pin and jump started it there was no boot.

I'm not sure if there is a power indicator on the mobo itself... but right now nothing is showing a sign of life...

In situations like this where you are stumped, I find it best to pull it apart, set it on a workbench(or cardboard box), and try with the bare essentials. Then slowly adding things to see where your problem lies. If it won't even power on though I would assume there is a short somewhere or perhaps your PSU button is not switched on weirdsmiley.gif Good Luck

Do you know how to jump start a PSU? The first thing I would check is PSU.

It could be your PSU that's DOA. You can try the test in this video to see if that is the problem;

By any chance could a short be caused by the I/O panel? On all my previous I/O panels they had little metal tabs that bent inwards into the case and made contact with the edges of the metal casings around the ports. On this one the tabs weren't bent inwards so I left them where they were, slightly brushing up against the ports.

I've jump started them with a fan and with a paperclip before, I guess that would make sense to do. I guess I didn't think of it since the PSU has been working fine for months and I turned on the system right before I took it apart to put in the new mobo + CPU.

BTW this is just new mobo and CPU, everything else is from the system in my sig.
