One last cry before I RMA and puchase new

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Okay I have had my computer not working for over 2 weeks now. I took it over a friends and it shut off at his house as soon as i hooked it up, I opened it up there to find what i think the heatsink was loose which would trigger my automatic heat shut-off. I took it back to my house only to get it to turn on but not display any picture at all. I disassembled everything and put my motherboard back into my case with only the 24 pin main connector, my PCI-E power, the 4-pin cpu, the small power,hdd light, and reset jumpers for the case. This is absolute minimum to get a computer to boot up is it not? I checked all the cables and no power at all this time. I'm willing to bet that it isn't the PSU or the CPU, and even the motherboard i'm not too sure of.

My case is a raidmax Saggita where the motherboard try in the back is broke. it moves freely and i have thought before that there could possibly be a grounding problem. I took out my mobo and layed in on a carboard box and hooked the same cables up and tried before but there was still no power. Does anyone have ANY idea at all what it could be? I'm getting ready to purchase a new case (more before im fed up with this one) but also to eliminate any grounding problems as well as a cheap IP35-E board while I RMA this one to gigabyte which could take months.

I would like to mention I have had this problem before during the summer and i couldn't get picture and i thought it was my motherboard

on turn off the power switch and pull the battery out and go to clear the cmos and let it set for 30min put the battery back in move the cmos jumper back and turn the power and see if it will boot

if the system works outside of the case, then you should get a new case

but your system isnt turning on at all... you probably damaged the motherboard or CPU from the loose heatsink

buying a new case wouldnt do you much good

well to test outside the case all I need is just the 24 pin, the 4-pin, my 6-pin pci-e if needed, and the case power/reset cables right?

How would you recommend testing it outside of a case.

Also tomorrow my friend's shipment of brand new parts from newegg to build his computer and i can use tests for mine to make sure every part works and isolate it.

Also I just want a new case because if it does still work my friend will give me about half of what i payed for it ($30) and i can get a nice case like I've always wanted.

To post you need cpu, 1 stick of ram, and a video card. Hook all that up and see what she does outside the case, do a cmos clear, etc. If it doesnt work, try a different ram stick, different video card, and different cpu (if you have those) to find the culprit.

I have purchased an Antec 900 becuase i found one at a good deal and I have been wanting a new case and have wanted an Antec. I will re-install everything in my new case when it arrives and if it doesn't work bare bones then i will try my friends CPU, and if that doesn't work I will assume that it is the motherboard and purchase a replacement while I RMA my DS3R.

Then i will just sell this one to a friend in a few months as well as my case. These gigabyte boards are great but am i the only one who seemed to have problems with them like this? I have had quite a few problems
