HELP!! Computer wont start!! - Page 3

post #21 of 29
First of all make sure you test both sticks of ram in each of the sockets. Then if this doesn't help then i suppose its a fried motherboard. I think the moral to the story is to buy a quality power supply. I notice you have the same one as mine (at least I assume). I'm now scared for the survival of my pc

I've been swapping parts from my sig rig to and from the work computer and I found out the cpu, gpu, HD's work fine in the sig rig, but the ram has trouble.

Anyways I hooked the 350w psu to my sig rig without the 7900gt and a regular 6series pci-e card I have and all it did was make a quiet jetson car noise.

When it was hooked up all it was powering was the motherboard, regular pci-e card, dvd rom, 1 hard drive, and my d5 pump incase it did fire up. I think 350w should be able to handle that. so my conclusion => fried.
The K8N Platinum/Neo4-F have been plagued with problems stemming from unstable BIOS revisions...seems as if the "Modded" Bios versions for these boards (7125) provide any stabilty at all.
Good that your work was saved...

I had a fan where two wires where actually touching in the molex connector. What it'd do was i'd turn on the power supply hit Power button fans would jolt, and then nothing nada! But if i turned the power supply off again, let it rest for a few minutes, I'd come back turn on the power supply, push the power button once again jolt from the fans but it wouldn't start.

Best advice is to try it going with just cpu, ram and gpu, put a stock heatsink on there if you got one. That pump could be shorting you out?? Check all of your molex connectors and make sure they aren't touching or grounding...

Ok guys good news, I fixed it.

The problem was the PSU, and btw this is a CG work pc I own as part of my studio not my computer in my specs.

It had antec smartpower 350w in it. I'm not sure what its acting up but I replaced it with a older no name brand 350w to hold me over till buy a new one this week. I though antec's made repectable psu's but I'm having second thoughts now because this problem was so random.

I don't get how cleaning some dust out resulted in a psu failure but I'm glad my files are ok.

Kimon: my thermaltake was actually cheaper than this antec and so far the thermaltake hasn't let me down. Thanks guys for trying to help me out!

Excellent! You know.... I have had some quirks with Antec PSU's also....

Gald to hear that you solved the problem!

Get a Tagan PSU, I've heard they're very good in terms of reliability
And that's what I'm hoping to get in my (maybe) christmas rig upgrade...

aight, I'll check them out because I'm looking for something safe and reliable ad at least 350w for under 70 bux.

thanks for the heads up

Did you blow air into the power supply, like with a can of compressed air? If so, that's what did it. I've heard many stories like that. Otherwise, if there was a bunch of dust in it, it could of clogged the fan.

But hey, I've lost many a power supply. Which is why I keep a few extras around. Like any electrical device, they sometimes just give out.

Glad to hear that you didn't lose anything, other then time.

Does make you think about making regular backups though, doesn't it?

umm no, i didn't blow anything in it or even touch it for that matter. The psu is only 8 months old and the computer is only ran while im working not all the time so there is hardly any dust in it. after this my opinion... antec =:turd:

and I have a nice APC ups..
so there are no excuses, it shouldn't have died.
