Does not boot! Asrock M3A770DE+AMD Phenom II

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I am trying to build a PC on my own for the first time.

I have attached the processor (AMD Phenom II X2 555 black Edition 3.2 Ghz) exactly according to the instructions, connected fan wires to the best of my ability. I have experimented with chassis wire combinations when instructions did not produce the desired result. Now I only have power button wire connected to the motherboard, and all I get when I plug it to electricity is a short (around 2sec) fan start of all devices and then they shut down. I don't have to push the power button fot this to happen as it does not respond.

The process can only be repeated if I keep it unplugged for a few seconds, because if there is a continuous power supply, the fans wouldn't start at all.
I noticed that my PSU Corsair CX 600 produces a barely noticeable high pitch noise that gradually disappears after I unplug it. I guess it might be normal for such devices.

I am running out of options. Need some asstistance please. confused.gif

I have that board so I should be able to provide some good info. First, reset the CMOS by removing the circular battery and or putting the CMOS jumpers into the reset position. Then, make sure your ram stick(s) are seated correctly; and, that your video card is seated correctly and all applicable power cables are attached. If that doesn't work, fill out your system info in the user cp so we can give you some more advice.

That has happened to me with a CX430 on my HTPC. However, it has recently stopped with a change of outlet...

You sure CPU cooler is properly seated?

overclockingXTC,

Glad you have the same board. At the moment, I am trying to connect chassis’ wires properly. There was an instance when the PC started up fully with all flashy lights, however would not start again after a shut down.

Could you please show me how am I supposed to connect chassis’ wires to the motherboard? I would like to eliminate my wrong connection possibility as instructions do not apply to the real world very well.

Just follow the manual. Usually the letters go on the outside. So on the bottom they would face the bottom of the case, and on top the top of the case. Just plug in the Power header first and see if it powers on.

Remove you motherboard and be sure you have all of the standoff in the right spot and there is no part of the case able to touch the bottom of the board causing a short.

Maybe crap/defective power supply or a short to the case ,no standoffs.
Remake system on a card board or wooden table.

Shorting the 2 pins that go to the case power button wires should be enough to see if it boots.

Problem is clear now, a defective PSU.

24 pin connections to the mother board are shorting. Sometimes I could find a perfect position for the pins to boot the PC, but if I move the wire by a little bit it shuts down.

A new Corsair CX600 has been ordered by the store, a heck of experience from building my first PC…

Thanks for the advices, guys.

Defective eh?
I got the squealing before (on certain power outlets) with my CX430, but it was working before and it's working now
