Hi everyone,

I recently built a PC and It's been working for over a month. I restarted my PC one day and because the thing boots so quickly I couldn't get to BIOS, so I hard reset the PC until it turned off fully. Upon powering it back on, there was no display on the monitor though the fans spin and LEDs turn on.

The computer sometimes turns on and immediately restarts, then turns back on and just stays on for minutes with no display! I have managed to get access to BIOS after reseating every possible component, though I believe CMOS to be the issue. When the PC works, it works fine. But when I turn it off, I have to go though the same procedure to get it working again.

I have no Graphics card as of yet, I am running on the integrated graphics. I started on HDMI output, but VGA seemed to work more consistently after the issue started.

I have run memtest on my RAM and it passes.

Recently I upgraded my RAM (additional 8GB vengeance) and bought a webcam.

My specs are:

Mobo: Gigabyte H87 HD3
CPU: Intel Core i5 4670k
Memory: 16GB Corsair DDR3 1600MHz Vengeance (4x4gb)
PSU: Corsair builder series 600W modular
SSD: SanDisk 64GB
HDD: Seagate 500GB 7200RPM
no Graphics card

Stock cooling, and have never overclocked.

Please help guys, any suggestions will be appreciated.

I appreciate your response. I have attempted to do what you said, but to no avail.
Just for reference, I am running Windows 8 Pro 64bit.

sometimes you need to enable channels for 4 sticks of ram to work and post might want to try taking out 2 of them and rebooting

Already attempted, the issue is seemingly random. When I get it working, it works for a while and an be restarted multiple times. But for example, this morning I woke up and the same issue came back.

Thanks for your support

Yeah it might be something more serious like your motherboard, I've had older system that where aging that seemed to do the same thing sadly, 99% of the time it's the motherboard not the cpu which if you tested all of the ram you should be able to check that off, So that would just point at ether a psu or motherboard problem, I would probably find a a friend or a spare power supply that is good enough and test it out, if the problem still is accruing might be the motherboard. but I mean corsair psu's are just amazing in quality so the chances are low. but if you look at this list you see that the CX750w is on the list but not the CX600 AXi: AX760i, AX860i, AX1200i
AX (Gold and Platinum): AX650, AX750, AX760, AX850, AX860, AX1200
HX (Silver, Gold and HX1000): HX650, HX750, HX850, HX1000, HX1050
TX-M (All Versions): TX550M, TX650M, TX750M, TX850M, TX950M
TX (All Versions): TX550, TX650, TX750, TX850, TX950
GS (Current V3): GS600, GS700, GS800
GS (Legacy V1): GS600, GS700, GS800
CX-M: CX750M This is the list of haswell ready psu's from corsair
CX: CX750
VX: (Legacy) VX550

Oh my god, I could have sworn I checked this.

"The ones in this second list are marked as "likely compatible" but "currently validating." Corsair explains that it's "still working with Intel on the details of the testing methodology they use to check PSUs for Haswell compatibility."
•HX (Legacy Bronze and below): HX450, HX650, HX520, HX620
•GS (Legacy V2): GS500, GS600
•GS (Legacy V1): GS500
•CX-M: CX430M, CX500M, CX600M
•CX: CX430, CX500, CX600
•VX (Legacy): VX450
•VS: VS350, VS450, VS550, VS650"

I guess all I saw was 'likely compatible'

Thanks, that's given me a good indication.
