Hello.
Three weeks ago I built a new computer at home. It was working good for two days. Now if I press the power on button the lights will light up all the coolers start up but no beep no picture. I checked the connections they are good and I also bought new hardware to solve the problem but It didn't help just for one boot.

Original specs:

Mobo: ASUS F1A55M-LE
CPU: AMD A4-3400
GPU: AMD HD6410D (integrated)
RAM: Zeppelin Xtra 4GB 1600MHZ (in A1 slot)
PSU: LC POWER 500H 500W
Monitor: ACER AL1714SN
Case: Some BMW like case with 4pin speaker (recycled from old computer)

Specs with new hardware: (bold ones are new)

Mobo: ASUS F1A55M-LE
CPU: AMD A4-3400
GPU: Gigabyte NV210-1GD3
RAM: Zeppelin Xtra 4GB 1600MHZ (in A1 slot)
PSU: HKC 450W (came with the new case)
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster S19B150
Case: HKC 4673GD (no sound connector)

And If I repeat the startup (pressing the power on button for 5 secs to shutdown and press again for startup) for 6-7 times it will start and work properly. All the parts have warranty so if there is hardware problem i can have it repaired. What is the problem

Update 1 : The RAM does not running on normal frequency it only running on 800Mhz

I see ram list 1/2 the speed a lot. I'm not sure why. Use cpuid or any benchmarker to check your ram frequency, it's probably 1600 like it should be. As for your boot issues, I'd suggest contacting ASUS. When I've encountered similar problems, it was blow capacitors (on an old board). Perhaps yours are faulty.

your Ram is at 800MHz because it is DDR.
Double Data Rate, 800x2= 1600.

So In this picture the 800Mhz is good?



And there is a new problem I think. The ASUS AI Suite what I use for monitoring keep me throwing error messages with this error : "WARNING! The CPU temperature is -45,0 centigrade." Is this the programs fault or something else?

Yea your ram is fine.

As for the temps, AMD CPU's give false readings all the time.
Well not really false readings just inaccurate readings.
Like my Athlon X2 245 says I am running 14C at idle.
This would be fine if I was using water cooling but I am using fans.

Try CoreTemp for monitoring temps of you CPU
and make sure you put the cooler and thermal paste on right.

14C would take a lot more than water cooling :)  Sub-ambient cooling is a whole different animal.

I bet it is!:lol: 
It was just giving an example of what my AMD CPU is doing to me. :na: 
I have to add 20C to whatever it says to know what the real temps are. :pfff: 
Kinda frustrating but it keeps my addition skills on par. :lol:

Hi.
I sent back my ASUS mobo yesterday. Now I am using my old computer and it reproducing the error what the new one did. So I press the power buttons but just the coolers staring. And after 7-8 times it turns on and it can reboot anytime but if I turn off it for the night and I switch of the plug in the morning It will not start.

The config is:

Mobo: FOXCONN 915PL7AE
Processor: Intel Pentium 4 HT 630 3.0Ghz
RAM: Kingmax 1Gb 400Mhz
PSU: LC Power 500W LC500H
Case: the BMW like case
HDD: Samsung HD80HJ
VGA: Gigabyte NV210-1GD3 (GeForce210; 1Gb GDDR3; 64Bit)
ODD: Samsung SH-V162C IDE connection

I hope I didn't returned my new mobo for nothing.

Hmmm, is this PC plugged it no the same wall socket as the last one?
Try plugging it in somewhere else.
It may be you PSU.
What brand PSU did you have with your old mobo and what does the current PC running the Pentium have?

Yes It is plugged into the same wall socket. I have tried plugging somewhere else but no change. The older PSU what I used first for the new mobo and now using for the pentium is an LC POWER LC-500H (500W) and the replacement what I used for the new mobo is a HKC 450W PSU and its brand new.

The only thing I can think of is a faulty PSU, loose RAM, bad power switch.

It sounds like it draws too much power or something then surges itself out. :??: 

When you hit the power button everything turns on and then it just shuts down right away?

No it not shut down just hangs out before POST screen so I press the button than the LEDs light up the coolers start and nothing happens no beep until I turn it off by pressing the power button again than it shuts down.

Update 1: So you think the old PSU what I used for the new mobo surged out the mobo what have surge protection. That's weird.

If it gets to POST then beeps then something isn't plugged in all the way or is missing/broken.
I thought you meant everything lights up for like .5 seconds then it dies.
