i5-3570K issue

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This is my first computer build and I'm having an issue booting. When I boot, I get a signal to my display, but the signal is blank. The motherboard goes through it's post code cycle, and everything powers up. I tried using both my GTX 660 Ti as well as onboard video, both times getting the same result. I'm posting in the Intel forum because I have a feeling I got a bad processor; I'm just hoping you guys could either tell me how to fix this problem or confirm my suspicions. My components are as such:

Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
CPU: i5 3570k
RAM: 2x4GB G-Skill Ripjaws-X
PSU: Seasonic X-Series 650w
SSD: OCZ Vertex 4
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB

No. No post codes. The mobo goes through its whole cycle and then the debug is blank when it's done with its cycle. Btw, sorry if my computer lingo is a little lacking. I'm just getting into this sort of thing.

1.) You do have an OS installed right?
2.) The debug code should not be blank. It should show a "working fine" code if it completed it's booting. Can you keep an eye on the debug code and mark down the last code it shows before it disappears.
3.) What's the last thing you did before this happens? Can you walk us through what you did after you plug everything in and power on the system.
4.) Start with the GPU if you have a spare working gpu around.

Yes with ASRock board, it should read AA while in the Os.

Well I kinda just resolved it by using a different display. Everything was working properly (thank god) the whole time. I just installed my os. So no. I did not have an os installed when I was having the issuel Does anyone know though why I couldn't use my tv as a display for the initial setup?

So you're saying that as soon as it reaches the bios, the computer reboots? Well even after you've checked by only using one stick of ram, stock cooler, onboard video and just the power connectors being connected (24-pin & 8-pin) and if it still happens, then to me it looks to be a faulty mobo. Your processor could also be at stake, but mobos have a much higher DOA rate than processors (that's for sure).

I wanted you to update your bios to the latest one but as you're saying that it crashes even when it reaches the bios (with no OS installed), then I really doubt if you'll be able to update it.
