Did the problem get better or worse? Not sure...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So, I don't know if any of you read my thread from yesterday titled, "Not so Pumped Now." I was trying to do an initial boot on the my build and I got some strange responses. I have the power supply, motherboard, cpu, CPU cooler, gpu, the keyboard, and all the system cables installed. No hard drives or optical drives are installed yet. When I went to boot it yesterday, I got no beeps at all. What happened was the LED for the CPU test would come on, but go right back off immediately. Then the LED for the RAM test would come on and stay solid red. Consensus here on the board seemed to be that it was a memory issue, but nobody seemed to know why I didn't get any beeps at all. The CPU cooler fan would run the whole time, but the case fans were going off and on.

Now today... I went out and got different sticks of RAM. I checked with the QVL on Asus' website and made sure I bought RAM that they had listed. I took the battery out trying to reset the CMOS too. I left it out for about 40 minutes or so (had to run a quick errand). I put the battery back and turn the power on. Now I am getting some very different things. I have a beep as soon as it turns on. That beep is immediately followed by the CPU LED coming on and then everything shuts down. The fans run for a second or so and they shut off as well (case fans as well as the CPU cooler fan). Without me doing anything, this sequence keeps repeating. It keeps trying to power up, but it beeps and shuts off again. I'm guessing there is an interval of between 5 and 10 seconds for it to try to boot, shut down, and then try again.

So, all of you with far more experience than me, I ask you: There is a problem with the CPU, right? Either I have installed incorrectly or its a bad CPU? I am starting to think I am in way over my head here. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Lou

The fact that it keeps trying to power up reminds me of a situation where you've overclocked your CPU way too far. So based on that alone I'm pretty confident that you have a bad CPU.

Thanks for the reply. They have a 30 refund policy, so I'll drop by Microcenter and exchange it tomorrow. Somehow, I have a hunch that its the motherboard though. I don't have anything to base that on though, its just a gut feeling.

Did that right after I made the original post. Made no change whatsoever. I cleaned off the thermal paste and looked for burn marks and all that. I can't see anything wrong with the CPU at all.

Yes, I have all the standoff in place. If I still have issues after putting the new CPU in, I am going to get one of the MSI boards that Microcenter stocks. They aren't my first choice, but I want to get this rig running before the weekend is over. I will worry about any RMAs on Monday.

I would greatly appreciate any responses... Could my problem just be the power supply? Its the one component that I bought that seems to be an odd name. I went and picked up the new CPU today and there is no change, this one acts exactly as the other one did. So, its either the mother board or the power supply. Thing is, before I reset the CMOS by taking out the battery, the light on the motherboard would stay green indicating that there was power to it and the fans that were plugged into the mother board would turn. Now that I have reset the CMOS by taking the battery out, the light stays lit on the motherboard indicating that there is power, but the fans only run for a brief second and shut down with everything else.
