Hello,

I just put all my new computer parts together.
Try to start my computer. Fans turn , then shuts down again.
I put in my POST. To see what error it gives.
Error: Verify 8259 Channel 1 interrupts by turning off and On the interrupt lines (Test 8259-1 Mask Bits)
My computer specs are:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H
RAM: G.Skill 8 GB DDR3-1600 Quad-Kit
CPU: (temporary) Intel Celeron G555, 2.7Ghz
PSU: MS-Tech MS-N750-VAL

Hope you can help me!

That error is a code from the BIOS. It has happened because something has failed during the POST. What I would do is unplug the computer, and make sure that everything is connected properly. If you are 100% sure that everything is connected properly, then with the computer completely unplugged, remove the CMOS batter from the motherboard and give it a minute or two. Put the battery back, plug the machine in and try to boot it again.

If this still fails, you can try putting a different PSU in. I'm not too optimistic that this will work. I'd rather try boot the machine with a different CPU and see if that works. You can also try to boot it with only one RAM module at a time, and alternate slots until you have tried each module one at a time in each slot.

If all of the above does not work, I would suggest contacting Gigabyte for more clarity on what is happening, by quoting the error message in your email. They will be able to tell you what actions to take, or if you should RMA that board. I've tried to find out what exactly that error could mean, but I've not been able to. Gigabyte will know what you can do if nothing can resolve this.

You're welcome. Start with the battery, sometimes that helps. As for the rest, they're more suggestions than solutions, I'm not sure what that error means other than something failed, so I'm just suggesting what I'd try.

Good Luck!

I'd say that's a symptom. Something is causing that to happen. Can this machine even get into the BIOS?

It will still get into BIOS without a HDD or CDrom. Sounds like a RAM issue to me possibly. How many stick are you running? Try one in each slot at a time.

No, nothing is displaying the screen is not even responding!
The CPU Fan is rotating for ± 3 seconds and then it turns off.
My computer is beeping every 0,5 second like beep beep beep beep etc.

Do you have a spare PSU? Read this THREAD. The gentleman had a very similar problem to yours. It was a bad PSU.

EDIT: Consult your MOBO user manual, those beeps are usually a code. The manual will tell you what each beep sequence means.

I suggested the same thing, but I'm more concerned that since the fans don't even spin, the motherboard might be dead.

Edit: Curious, how many times does it beep before it shuts down?

Reedit: According to this site, here are the list of beep codes for gigabyte:

http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,2248.0.html

The POST beeps indicate the following:
1 short: System boots successfully
2 short: CMOS setting error
1 long, 1 short: Memory or motherboard error
1 long, 2 short: Monitor or graphics card error
1 long, 3 short: Keyboard error
1 long, 9 short: BIOS ROM error
Continuous long beeps: Graphics card not inserted properly
Continuous short beeps: Power error
