No video after new PSU

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
After purchasing an OCZ Fatal1ty 550W and sleeving the entire thing, I've assembled everything and turned it on.
All the fans seem to work, but I hear no beeps (obviously because I don't have the little speaker.) After holding down on the power button, the computer turns off, so I don't think it's a hardware failure of some kind... is it?

I've also tried a different GPU (HD 4350/HD5670) and that didn't work. My mobo doesn't come with integrated graphics by the way. frown.gif

*I've used two different displays (DVI for my 22") (HDMI for my 32")
Usually on the 32" inch, it would instantly give me the "No signal" message, but it takes roughly 5-7 seconds for it to show up; during that time, it shows a black screen.

Yes, I have. The EPS cables as well. (If anyone was going to ask) tongue.gif

Pull your ram, and add one stick at a time when booting. Perhaps bad Ram ?

Make sure your psu is plugged into your graphics card, or if your motherboard has it, plug the specified power plug into the board. I have seen some boards that are like this. It would make no sense to me if it was the psu causing this, but you never know. If you do have power going to your gpu try a different plug from the psu to gpu to make sure it is not a faulty plug. Other than that I see no reason that the psu would be causing this issue.

Hmm, one stick had the same result, while two made all of the fans set to the max speed.

I've used the 6-pin cable that came with my PSU and a 2x Molex to 6-Pin adapter. They all had the same result.

Try using the different DIMMS on your motherboard.

Boards will recommend A1 / B1 and then A2 / B2.

Plug a single stick of ram into each of the slots to see if it will post.

Did you happen to pull your Cmos battery in any of this process? Is your bios settings still the same as before? You said your MoBo doesn't come with integrated graphics, so I'm assuming there isn't a setting to turn on Pci-e for your current GPU.
Well at this point, it could be many things. You just sleeved your powersupply. Are you certain everything is exactly where it was before sleeving (pin wise)?

pull your Cmos battery and reset your bios to default

Reset CMOS. If you get nowhere with that, try your old (if you have it/still works) power supply. If that makes things start working as intended, I'd look into your sleeve job.

Using certain RAM sticks won't make the fans as loud as an airplane. I think the other two sticks are faulty.

I've pulled my CMOS battery, and used the jumper-method.
I'll look into my 24 and 8 pin.

Yeah, I'm guessing it's my 24-pin. I'll look into it later.

So, I've finished reseating my 8 and 24 pin cables, and it still won't turn on.
What are the chances of a defective CPU?
