Getting hopeless atm [SOLVED!]

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
Well bought some new hardware but having troubles getting it to work.

Have bought an Corsair RM750 PSU and a Asus R9 290-DC2OC-4G5D.

Installed the new PSU and GPU but booting up the system was getting me nowhere, mostly got stuck at bios screen. Even if i got into bios it got stuck after a couple of seconds. So removed the new GPU and placed the old one back in, still had same issues. so i reconnect my old CM 500W PSU and it booted up just fine. Installed the new GPU with my old power supply and it still boots up fine exept it kept crashing after a couple of minutes. So i figured my old PSU isnt cut out for the new GPU but works fine with the old one, so i brought back the PSU to the store and told them my problem. They said weird, should be working fine or not at all, but they tested the new PSU anyway and it worked fine on their testing rig. But said i wanted to change to a different model so i bought an Seasonic Platinum-760.

So i rebuild my rig with the new PSU and new GPU and it booted up without any interference. But then after starting up a browser or booting up a light game (gmod) it crashes right away. And it keeps doing this every time. Removed my CPU overclock, still same problems. Put back in the old GPU (AMD HD6670), no problems at all.

AMD FX-6300 @ 4,6Ghz / 1.456V
Asus M5A78l-m/usb3 (mATX)
Asus R9 290 OC /HD 6670
Seasonic Platinum-760
Corsair 8GB (2x4) Vengeance 1866 DDR3
Seasonic
Intel 530 SSD
4x HDD (mix between 7200 and 5400 RPM)
Asus PCE-AC56 WLAN PCI
Aquatuning D5 Vario pump
Aquaero 5LT

Any words of advice?, don't want to RMA my card also and be wrong for the second time.

At this point, I would suggest re-installing windows. If not; it could be an issue with your motherboard. thinking.gif

measure the voltages on the power supply while doing light tasks and then under load to see how far they drop.

yellow 12v

red 5v

orange 3.3v

and black is ground.

might try hardware monitor. it's hit and miss but is does work-ish.

And what can be the issue with my motherboard? as far as i could check these 2 should be compatible

Even if i wanted to check HM the system crashes when i start up anything small, its a matter of seconds

going to reinstall my windows, see if that helps

Reinstalled windows, looked promising for 20 minutes or so, then after a couple of drivers and programs the crashing started again. So does this look like a mobo GPY compatiblity problem?
post #6 of 45
Any mobo BIOS updates available?

But looks like you haven't eliminated the new GPU as the culprit either.

What kind of crashes are you having? Blue screens, black screens? Windows event viewer show anything?

msinfo32 tells me bios version is 1801, while driver site tells me 1701 is the newest.

crashes are random reboots > windows recovering, no BSOD.

Windows event viewer tells me; ESENT > logging/recovery, nothing more really

put the old GPU back in for the moment so i can work with my pc...

Your motherboard newest BIOS is M5A78L-M/USB3 BIOS 2001.

A M5A78L-M LX PLUS BIOS 1701

AM5A78L-M LX BIOS 1603

Update to newest BIOS and do a full CMOS reset.Reinstall drivers.

I have the same board and CPU and it ran an R9 295x2 perfectly fine with my CM 1000W PSU. I do know I updated to the 2001 BIOS as soon as I got it though. Only other suggestion I have is my board does not like RAM above 1333mhz, but yours seems to be fine with the old GPU so its hard to say.
