First Build, NO BEEP or POST ! Help Please

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have just build a new computer last night. The first time I tried to boot there was no beep and the monitor said no signal detected. So, at first I tried other pci-e slots, that didn't work so i tried my older 6600 gfx card that did not work either.

I had the triple channel ram sticks in the black ram slots. I left only one stick of ram in the first slot. Tried to boot like that but I still had the same problem. I moved the ram to the next slot, the orange one.

This time it did work and so i just slotted them in the orange ones. It all worked fine, I got a single beep and even played crysis. But this morning i have the same problem! I did all the same steps again but i cant get the pc to boot.

Please help,
Thank you for reading.

The parts i bought are:
Asus p6t deluxe motherboard,
core i7 920 2.66ghz,
g-skill NQ PC3-12800C9 1600MHz triple channel ddr3,
xpertvision 9600gt 1gb gfx card - this was 2nd hand, but it worked fine on my previous pc,
be quiet 1000w
samsung spinpoint f1 1tb hdd,

Please reply as soon as possible.

You might have a bad RAM module. You say 1 worked and you had all 3 working for a while right? It's possible that one is going bad. I had 2 go bad on my at the same time.

Hmm try switching each RAM stick and powering on the computer to see if you can find the bad one.
