Computer wont post - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Thread Starter 
Got it to boot and i plugged in my monitor but i got no display which i think might have been caused by my adapter on my vga plug as it was not properly screwed. Where it normally says my cpu temp it had a code of 6 or it could of been a B but im pretty sure it was a 6. So now its doing the same thing restarting every 3 seconds but im pretty confident it will boot up again. Might be the psu.

Would be advisable to borrow a PSU and test in your system as soon as possible. Strongly recommend not letting system cycle in that manner. You need to rule PSU in or out quickly. Bad power supply could damage other things downstream.

Failure candidates in order of probability:
1. Power Supply
2. Motherboard
3. Intermittant Short
4. Power Connection

Looks like its a power supply problem gonna try to RMA my power supply as i dont have another heavy duty psu to test this on. Im pretty sure its the power supply because after waiting a while the pc boots but hangs at the windows 7 loading screen ... but the thing that has me concerned is that when it starts messing up at the win 7 logo screen the mobo kicks all the fans into high gear and the pc could not be shutdown by pressing the button only by turning off the psu.

What do you guys think could be causing my computer to start after being off for about 6 hours at a time and then when it hits the windows 7 logo screen the screen flickers and my mobo kicks into overdrive with the fans and the only way to turn the system off is by turning off the psu. Im thinking its the psu but also thinkin it may be my mobo. In the process of trying to rma my psu through the corsair site but cant figure how to register my psu... guess i gotta call em.

Yeah, PSU is looking to be the culprit.
Don't have a spare PSU on site?
or even borrow from a friend or something?

It really sounds like a flaky "crowbar" circuit in your power supply. It's supposed to turn the power supply off when voltage or current problems are sensed. And as long as it senses a problem it is designed to remain off. It might hang in this off state. But unplugging the A/C input power cable for a short while should allow it to reset itself. 6 hours is just wrong. I agree it could be your MB or even worse both your MB and PSU after all this thrashing around.

Just shipped my psu 2 days ago waiting on a reply from corsair on when I will get it... I really hope the new or refurbished psu fixes the problem
