Black screen after EVGA 650i Ultra install

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello boys and girls,

I got a problem with my computer since last week. I had this EVGA 650i Ultra that was on the shelf for a couple of weeks and after backing up all my stuff I decided to install it.

I had a Asus P5E-VMO model if im not mistaken. Its a nice board but its a doesnt have alot of expansion posibilities.

So Ive got this EVGA 650i Ultra board, a Quad core 2.40ghz @ Q6600. 2 X Kingston KVR667/1G. Standard 500gig SATA hd etc etc. and a GT8800 video card (that i was looking to upgrade very soon)

So this is my dilema, i've installed everything back to its place, I made sure I didnt have any pins from the previous board in the way of this one to not make any ground spots.

So at first, the computer started saying that the CMOS had an error, and to continu I pressed F1 to start the PC, windows 7 loading screen came on, I ran upstairs to get something quick. Came back down and everything was shut down, and since then, everytime I try to get it to start, the fans come on, no beeps, you hear the HD start, etc etc, but the screen stays black, flashes like there no video output. I tried the DVI and the VGA slot on the card, I tried playing with the memory, switching slots, putting only one, installed and re-installed the processor 2-3 times and made sure it was in the right direction, both lights, the yellow one in the top right corner and the green one in the bottom left lid up.

And after playing around with it so many times, I said screw this the motherboard might have something wrong with it. Re-installed my P5E-VMO in and guess what, same problem again.

I tried taking out the motherboard battery, I tried moving the CMOS pin from 2 to 1 and 2, (but not 100% sure I did the right thing there) And it still didnt change anything. Now I have the same problem on both motherboard, what am I doing wrong, would this mean my PS is burned? I mean it turns on, I have power on the board...

Thank you, and i appreciate any tips on maybe reseting the CMOS.

PSU's can be faulty even if your fans and motherboard gets power. Have expreienced this several times.

Try another PSU.

OK I couldnt try another PSU because the model I had was for a Pentium 3, so I didnt have anything on hand to try it.

But, I unplugged and replugged everything another time, and I hear the Hard drive booting and then, a single beep, another beep like the Bios just started... but still no Display signal.

Any thoughts?

*** UPDATE ****

This weekend I tried a different PCI cheap ass Nvidia 256mb PCIE card, and I got a signal on the card on my Asus P5-VMO board, and everything booted correctly, exept I found out that my harddrive toasted. The minute I plugged it in my computer was shutting down immediatly, and some smoke came out of the HD. I changed plug on a different harness, and I didnt get any jumps.

So I pulled out a brand new 1TB HD, and everything booted, I installed my XP to then install my windows 7 over it, and thats when again, 1 or 2 reboots later, no more screen signal.

*** UPDATE ON MONDAY NIGHT ***

Problem not fixed. Purchased a Thermaltake 650W PSU, a GTS 450 SC 1082mb PCIE card, and I took the liberty of upgrading my ram from a DDR2 800MHZ 2G to a 4Gig Patriot package.

Now Last night, I installed all those new components, and again, installed it on my EVGA 650i Ultra board, the CPU, the Ram, the components and etc etc, boot it up, nothing, no video signal again going to my screen.

So again, I tried my Asus Board, transfered everything back onto there, and the minute that I put the power on my PSU, the computer just turns on by itself, and shuts down after 3 seconds, then boots up again, 3 sec later, shut down again.

I'm really loosing my patience with this one, i've never had so much problems puting together a computer system like that.

Who has a solution for my poor self?

**UPDATE 3 DAYS LATER***

I brought the computer to a local shop because I was really out of ideas, aparently, the EVGA 650i Ultra that was unpacked like a week ago has 2 connectors on the 775 bus that are touching together and that was the issues.

Since the model is too old they cannot RMA it, so I'm suppose to receive an Intel board LGA775 that they ordered.

Thanks for the help
