New rig not posting???

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
All the parts:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
Asus P5B-E mobo
Kingston Value DDR2 2x512
EGate Geforce 7600 PCI-E 512mb
Sound Blaster X-Fi Music
2xSeagate SATA3.0 HDD
2xDVD drives, one burner other player
Thermaltake 430 watt psu
CoolerMaster case

Alright, after going through every manuals install guide to make sure everything was setup correctly, I can still not get the system to post. Everything powers up fine, the fans come on, the heatsink's fan comes on, the dvd rom drives initiate, I am pretty the hard drives do as well but the activity light is not blinking but the power light is on. The fan on the grapics card comes on as well. Nothing comes up on the display and I have tried it on several different monitors as well. I have already reset the c-mos several times and double checked all the connections to ensure they were connected properly. Anyone have any ideas for me to try?

Sidenote: Although it doesnt post, it stays on and if I hit the reset button it turns off and on, if I hold don the power button for 5 seconds it goes off and the reset button wont turn it on.

Thanks for any help.

Check EVERY POSSIBLE CONNECTION again. I had the same problem with one system, and it turned out one of the cables wasnt plugged into the PSU

If you are 100% sure that EVERY cable is plugged in correctly, make sure the stupid things are taken care of: The monitor is turned on, all your external cabling is connected and tight, etc. Also, try using the other jack on the video card, if possible.

Pull everything except one stick of RAM and the GPU. Try to boot. If it doesn't...pull the MoBo out of the case and try to boot it on an insulator (like the box it came in). Also try swapping ram modules.

Try removing the CMOS battery for 10 minutes and put it back. Maybe some settings from the factory are screwing with the RAM and CPU.

Is your monitor switched on at the wall

It could be a dogdy dvi/vga cable, try with a different one. And reseat the graphics card again.

Do you get any warning beeps? Maybe try a diffrent stick of ram. I had a friend with the same problem. Switched it out for some OCZ's and voila problem fixed.

if ur reset button and power button are messed up check those little jumpers and make sure positive is on positive and neg on neg exct. that will make ur mobo operate incorectly, i did that the first time i built one luckily the person who tought me was there to catch it, note i believe the color wire is positive and the white wire is neg

Dont waste your time checking all your connections..

The first thing you should do for any computer that wont post is unplug everything.

Just have a CPU, Video card, and 1 Slot of Memory in the system..no harddrives, no DVD drives...nothing but bare bones.

If that doesnt boot then swap memory with the other stick.

If it still doesnt work try swapping in another video card.

If it still doesnt work somethings majorly borked.

Once you do get it up, slowly start plugging things in until it fails. Problem found.

This may be pretty obvious but did you plug in the 4-pin connector on the motherboard?

Thread Starter 
With everything plugged in, the system powers up and sounds like it is booting up, but nothing shows up on the display. There are no warning beeping sounds coming from it. I will try tearing down and booting back up from the bare to the top. I have reset the cmos several times and even left it out for an hour once just to see. Nothing. I am thinking its the graphics card but I dont have an extra pci-e card laying around, my current one is agp still. The monitor works fine on my computer, not the one I am building for my mom but mine, so I know it works. Will try all these ideas, thanks for everyone giving me some ideas. Will rep+ who vers idea works.

PS - All the little chords from the case that connect to the motherboard are definitley in there correctly, checked that a thousand times over now.

Again, thanks everyone.
