Is my I5-760 dead?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello,

So about a month ago i started to recieve some problems turning on my pc.
The problems were like my pc didn't react to my power button and then when i managed to get it on it just kept turning off and then back on every 3-5ish seconds w/out getting to the POST screen and also the pc speaker did not make any noise so I thought my motherboard was dead (Asus P7H55-M LE) since it did have some problems here and there. So yesterday i recieved a new board (Gigabyte H55M-UD2H rev 1.3) and here i thought it would fix the problem it sadly did not help and the problem was exactly the same. I did only leave my PSU, MB, CPU and only connected my main power button to see if thats gonna give me some kinda explanation on why my pc is doing the shutting off and on thing and well with just those parts connected my pc does no longer shut off and on but stays on but i find it weird that since my RAM is out my pc is not beeping. Any ideas?

Thanks!

GA-H55M-UD2H
4GB DDR3 stick and 1GB DDR3 stick
Gigabyte Nvidia GTX660TI
Intel Core i5-760
OCZ Fatal1ty series 550W PSU

P.S. I tried to connect my psu and gpu in my friends pc and it works flawless. if you need any more info feel free to ask ;P Sorry for my english.

First you need to make sure you have a speaker connected (as not all boards have them).
If you don't do you have some kind of indicator leds on the board?

Also try to boot only with the essentials i.e cpu(+cooler) and the RAM.
The UD2H has on board graphics use those for testing sake.

I have a few things you might try:

1. If the PC is plugged into a surge protector, unplug it from there and plug it directly into the wall. If the problem persists, try moving the PC to a different floor of the house or a different room and try the wall socket in there.
2. Test PC with each stick of RAM in the first slot, this will let you know if any of the RAM modules are bad.
3. I don't think that Gigabyte boards have any onboard LEDs, you will need to make sure that the speaker connector is in the right spot to hear any beeps.
4. Take apart the computer and put it back together. This may help you catch any connectors you may have missed.
5. Test your CPU fan, it sounds like the shut downs after 3-5 seconds could be because the processor was not being cooled.

Right, so far it's silently sitting on but w/out anything connected and the pc speaker is not giving me any sound and my on-board LED's shows what i think is a frozen boot before POST showing what went wrong.

P.S. the i5-760 does not support on-board graphics

Install ram and test, many motherboards just wont do anything without ram installed.

I would test them one memory stick at a time. Anyway your motherboard could be shorting out by touching the case?

I don't know if it's relevent still, but I just happend to service a gigabyte board (GA-H61M-DS2) with the exact same issues as you described and it ended up being a sketchy socket.
