Solved

Ok I need help again :(

So I posted not long ago in the CPU thread about how my PC would start up around 10 seconds

and shut down repeatedly. After I switched my CPU to a i5 3570k to a I7 3770k .So they suggested

that I reset the CMOS so I put it from the 1-2 to the 2-3 removed it and PC started so I put it back

on the 1-2 turned the PC off thinking it was fixed hooked everything back up went to turn it on and

nothing. It will only start up and stay on but wont show display to my monitor nor will keyboard or

mouse light up with the PSU power on and me putting the jumper on the 2-3 then removing and

placing on the 1-2. So I'm totally confused on what to do now. I cant get the cooler on the cpu any

tighter btw my cooler is the Corsair H80i I also used it on my I5 with no issues.

  3. Do not get the cooler any tighter or you will screw your CPU socket!! When installing the cooler, you must tighten a little bit ONE of the screws, and THEN the next one tighter as the previous, and then tighten the next one, and the next one, and so on... Do not tighten the max one, and then the other, and the other. It may harm the socket.

    Ok, now. It's quite probable that you messed your motherboard at this step: "... and PC started so I put it back on the 1-2 turned the PC off ...". You shouldn't have put back the jumper with the system turned on. Let's make a diagnosis.
    Turn off the computer and unplug from the AC power or use the swith on your power supply (if it has one) to turn off. Put the jumper on 2-3 and back to 1-2. Plug back the AC power and try to turn on the computer. Now, what are the signals? Leds on? Fans on? The display is dead or it lights that "dark" of alive? The fans of the GPU are running?

    Yea I need to see if that other ram is messed up which it shouldn't its not that old. I went to put the 2nd ram back in the 3rd slot and bam same issue pc would start and turn off. any idea other then bad memory? the ram was locked in tight so shouldnt be that. It only did that after I installed the new cpu.
