Please Help! First time building went wrong!!!!!!!! - Page 3

post #21 of 60
a psu isnt loaded apon boot up so that out of the question. but the psu itself could be bad anyway.

check ur wires and connections and be sure the power buttons and w/e ARE connected correctly to ground/earth and positive.

also sli wont work without a hack first so dont forget to do that.

Dont overclock with inexpensive 500w psu's on that setup.

Try resetting CMOS before you do anything else.

Unplug PSU and remove the cmos battery (silver battery on the mobo) for a minute.
Then replace the battery and plug in the psu/try turning on the pc.

Could be a toasty psu...hopefully it's not the cpu.

Check your power button, make sure it's not stuck.

Had the same issue with a recent HTPC build; the power switch had become jammed underneath and it powered on whenever the power supply was turned off and then shut down right away. May need some digging for you to find out if it's stuck though, like taking off the top panel and removing it from the I/O panel on top.

is the cpu power cable the psu cable? if so yeah i did.

and sorry i couldnt find what place to put this topic at! but ATI had most people reading atm hahaha

No. It's a 4pin (or 8pin) cable that plugs in to a header at the top left of the motherboard.

Why do I have a feeling I was right all along.

Please post a pic of your pc setup.

Lots of people told me about buying a decent PSU,i didnt listen and my Akasa PowerMax 850w literally exploded and took my motherboard with it and all i was doing was surfing the web

Check the cpu is seated correctly then start looking at ram,if you do get it working and boots up then id shut it down and leave it alone until you get a better PSU.

ohh yes i do have the 4pin connector on always. but still problem persists. sorry i thought u meant a cable. also i will try to make sure the power button is not broken and keeps resetting the pc. would be furious if that was the case. and i will try the cmos battery removal as well.

really starting to think it could be the cheap psu that really isnt letting me boot up to even bios menu.
