Oops! Looks like a problem...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I'm working on my first build and I've run into some problems. Actually one big problem that I can't seem to sort out. After putting everything together, I power on my computer, it seems like it's turning on and shutting off 3 times before running. The fans and power LED on the case are running but there doesn't seem to be a signal being sent to my monitor.

I've tried both with and without the graphics card, with the stock heat sink and with the H80i, with different combinations of ram, and made sure the 8-pin is plugged in. What does bother me is that the 24pin cable doesn't seat completely into the socket, i.e. it's firmly in there but the clip doesn't clip on...I wonder if this is an issue?

Anyway, I'd think it's the mobo. Maybe it's dead? I don't have a motherboard speaker, but will probably pick one up tomorrow morning to make sure. I really don't want to send it back, but if that's the case I'll have to. Therefore, can anybody suggest any tests to ensure that it is in fact the motherboard and not the CPU?

My build is in my sig under Orangatang but to summaraize:
  • ASRock Z87E-ITX
  • Intel I7-4770K
  • Crucial Ballistix Low Profile RAM 2x8 GB
  • XFX Double Dissipation Radeon 7870
  • Corsair CX750M PSU

Any help would be appreciated!!

Apologies in advance if this is in the wrong section!

What do you mean it doesn't clip in? Definitely needs to clip in.

Sounds like user error, something isn't plugged in right or completely seated.

So I've pushed the 24pin plug as far as I could. The thing is it doesn't seem to want to go far enough in where the little clip clicks. I'm afraid to push harder since the board starts to bend a bit...should it be that difficult to connect it?

Alrighty, rebuilt the entire thing this morning from scratch. Tested on piece at a time and what do you know? It's the RAM (feeling like an idiot at the moment). Seems like it needs a bit more of a push in than I thought. It'll display now and it's booting perfectly fine. I've also gotten the 24pin clipped in properly now, loosened up the plastic a bit with a screwdriver...Thanks!!
