**I Need Help**

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi so let me give you the comp specs.

MSI P6N Diamond 680i Mobo
Intel E6700 2.66ghz
MSI HD 2900XT
Antec Trio 650 watt Power Supply
2x1 Corsair xms2 DDR 800 2gb sticks
All were ordered from newegg for a total of 1500$

So this is the second computer I have built all went well the mobo is fairly easy to install along with everything else.
So once everything is plugged in i double and triple check everything. I plug in the power cord the power LED turns on then I try to boot. Nothing happens no post no d-bracket lights, no speaker beeps nothing. So i disassemble it all then do it all over again same problem.
So now im pissed and every computer tech store in my area is conveniently closed on sundays so I take it to best buy "Geek Squad" they tell me they'll run a diagnostic and check all wires. They call me and tell me they ran a different PS and it booted but my mobo had a virus... and my new never booted Corsair XMS2 memory failed their Progressive Inversion test oh and my HDD failed Internal Cache.... The HDD is 2 months old works perfect..... and how can a fresh out of the box MOBO have a virus that is the dumbest thing i have heard. So I saw ok i paid 60$ to find this out. I buy the same power supply for 50$ more at Best Buy then I did at newegg but I dont care at this point I just want to install the damn BIOS and get moving.

I get it home take out the old 650watt install a brand new 650 Antec trio and SAME PROBLEM!!! I repeat SAME PROBLEM!!. What do you guys suggest tommorow morning im going to my local tech guy and have them take a look at it. Is it possible that I got 2 DOA power supplys back to back??? Please someone give me your ideas thank you very much sorry for the rant.

Mobo, virus, that could never happen. A virus can't access anything writeable on the board. Don't listen to Geek Squad always come here first from now on. If you could fill out your specs under user cp we could better help diagnose the problem. Have a nice stay at OCN!

Update: It seems like with a fully loaded system with a 2900xt that psu could possibly not be able to handle it. I would wait around for a more qualified person to comment on that possibility.

I understand what your saying the 2900XT is a hungry guy i only run 1 HD no floppy, also 2 intake fans and 1 exhaust. i believe she needs 46o watts at idle to power up. 650 might not be enough to get her going? hmm wow thats not good.

Tests have shown that it consumes about 215w at stock speeds and tops out at about 250w. Have you reset your bios at all or taken out the battery for an extended period of time? Also did you reseat all the heatsinks and make sure all power connector are in and in the right spot?

Ya everything is connected properly ive tried running just power the the mobo ie the 24 pin and the 2x2 psu connector and nothing. The guy at te Geek Squad said he got it to boot until it shut off because there was no bios.... but ran a 480 watt PS but he didnt have the 8 pin connector coupled with the 6 pin to power the card. But the thing that doesnt add up is there is no on board video... how did he get it to show anything on the screen? And ever time i talked to the kid he kept asking if I wanted them in format the HD, install windows and install all the drivers for me for 200$ i laughed or what about the 40$ to install the PSU HAHHAHA it takes 5 minutes im never going back there besides to return my 2nd bad PSU in a row..... DAMN!

strip your pc down to your mobo,cpu,one stick of ram and your PSU.then see if you get power and enter the bios.if that doesnt work maybe it is your PSU or maybe your CPU or your mobo might be faulty.

Wait are you using the 8pin connector from your psu to connect the 2900xt? If so that cable is meant for the cpu power connector.

This cable is for cpu power connection:



You have to get an adapter to change a pcie 6pin to a pcie2 8pin, can't use atx12v.

I'm going to put in a vote for bad mobo, or second bad PSU. Even if there was no video card plugged in at all you still will get error beeps for no video... see if you can get the best buy monkeys to tell you whether it beeped or not when they supposedly got it to boot with the 480W PSU.

BTW, I had to put "mobo virus" in my sig.

Ya im gonna go return the bad power supply today and talk to them about that 60$ refund obviously their "diagnostic tools" are a joke. I have heard that the P6N Diamond boards have been DOA as well as the Antec 650watt trio PS's. This is getting extremely frustrating.
