Need help MSI Z97 GAMING 3

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I'm not new to building computers, but this is the first time this happened to me. Currently I'm building a computer for a friend, and the computer parts are:

CPU: i5 4670K
Mobo: MSI Z97 GAMING 3
Video: GTX770
PSU: Corsair CX500M

The problem I'm having is that the BIOS never appears, and my monitor says check the source power. At first I thought I narrowed it down to the motherboard, as the first time it happened, I tried switching the power supply with my current rig, and it still had the same problem. I tested it on several different monitors using HDMI, DVI, and VGA (with and without the GPU). So I sent in the motherboard back and got a another one. But the same problem came up so I'm not sure if it's something I'm doing wrong? I don't think its the power supply as I tried swapping itw ith my Silverstone 650W but the same problem came up.

So I'm not entirely sure what to chalk it up to... Do you think I got 2 dead motherboards in a row? Should I return the power supply just in case and get a different one?

Well it seems like you have done all the basic troubleshooting. I don't know if you've tried taking the actual GPU out and using the onboard video or not. You can try that. It's definitely not the PSU as you tried it with your other one. I doubt you got 2 dead motherboards in a row, but it is possible. You never know what can happen.

I would just check all the things that you wouldn't normally check. Such as the simple things.
