so this is my second attempt at building a computer. The first time i forgot to put in standoffs and fryed my motherboard..i finally got done installing everything today hoping it would turn on fine but then it doesnt boot up all the way. It turns on for 3 seconds and then just powers off..everything seems to turn on when i press the power button. When i plug in the power cord the green led turns on.
this is my set u
PSU ROSEWILL | RP600V2-S-SL 600W
MB ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe
CPU AMD|A64 X2 6400 3.2G AM2
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400
i researched as much as i could so there wouldnt be a problem but then i guess i missed something...
i pulled the ram out and tryed booting it but the same thing happened..could it be my power supply dont have enough power to support what i have installed on my computer? any information would help me alot...thx
other than your psu [never heard of rosewill] you seem to have a solid system,re beeps,,usually if there is a bios problem it will commence beeping at boot,you might want to try testing the mobo outside of the case start with just the video and 1 stick of ram and go from there,you need to try to isolate the source of the problem,check that all connections/power and data are firmly in place,and make sure that your psu has the required amps/volts,,some no name psu's do not deliver as advertised,there was a time when i had the same problem,turned out that the onboard battery was not fully charged,left it set for a while and presto no problem,don't think so in your case,not now a days anyhow ??...i had a similar problem with my present board also an asus,only it beeped at me took it back to the store ,,it worked fine,,brought it home plugged it ,,it worked fine,, go figure,,,BUT i pretested it before i installed it this time still working fine..:) can you do the same??
the great advantage of buying locally is if things go snafu,well the store is only a bus ride away.....g'luck...
