PC booted to BIOS (perfect). Turned off, then 1min later tried to power, No Beep, Monitor comes on for a sec, then blank.
My rig I built was running well for over a year. Then my motherboard died (probably zapped with static electricity) and I got my hands on another one (same model). I am just trying to start up with the basics, Motherboard, CPU/CPU cooler, RAM, Graphics card, PSU and USB keyboard.
___First 3 Attempts to Boot (reseated the RAM each attempt)___ * No beeps * Monitor gets a signal for a second, then nothing * Motherboard lights are on
___4th Attempt to Boot (reseated RAM again) * Got a Beep * Booted to BIOS (perfect, exactly what I wanted to happen)
___ 5th Attempt to Boot (did not reset RAM. Just held down Power button to turn off. Turned it on a minute later) * No beeps * Monitor gets a signal for a second, then nothing * Motherboard lights are on
That was last night. This morning it happened in a similar fashion. Got it to boot once, perfectly into BIOS. Then tried to repeat the process with no luck. Get the same, No Beeps, Monitor comes alive for a second then goes blank, MB lights are on.
This is driving me crazy that it works perfectly once, then does not boot after I turn it off and on a minute later.
_________My Build (this is all I am trying to start it up with, besides my USB keyboard)_________ MB: Asus Rampage IV Extreme
