Help - my 680i LT mobo will not stay on.

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
PLEASE Help me!!! I have just finished building my first computer. The problem is that my 680i LT board by XFX keeps turning off at random times. Ill get to the BIOS and all of sudden it turns off. Then Ill turn it back on and it will stay on for like 3 seconds the turn off. If i let it sit a little, then turn it on it will go a little further in the bios then just shut off again. Again this is my FIRST build and i am extremely stressed out at this.

Also i made sure i discharged my self before working with the parts. i never used a magnetic screwdriver and always touched the edges of the products.

Also there is a light that stays on from the motherboard until i unplug the power

There may be some sort of floppy connector that needs to be connected to the mobo. That you didn't connect power to your video card?

Take out your floppy drive and see if it boots.

Look around your board for a floppy connector. Then plug the floppy connector directly onto it and your problem should be resolved.

It should tell you in the manual how to jump the bios. If not, just take the little battery out for an hour. By the way, when you put an entire computer together yourself, there's always going to be one or two little problems, but they're always easily fixed. Don't stress yourself out, crap like that happens to everybody.
