Hi eveyone Iam new to posting on this site but have been reading for awhile. Iam having an issue with a CPU. First off the problem. My PC will not turn on while the CPU is attatched to the Motherboard it turns on for a second then turns off. If i take it off it turns on fine. SO i figure i Fried the CPU somehow but then i was told I would of fried my motherboard before the CPU. Just want another persons opinion on my situation. I'll give some specs
yes both....... if the CPU is in it all turns on for a Split seconds all the fans spin starts to live then dies. no CPU no problem but no CPU is a big problem
No CPU? Definitely a problem.
Start over, with the motherboard out of the case.
Put it on a neutral surface, like some cardboard.
Attach only the minimum parts needed to boot to bios.
CPU and cooler
1 stick of ram in the first slot,
vga card and monitor,
no hard drive or sound card or dvd drive.
See how you do then.
Assuming that it works run memtest and add parts one by one.
When it all works put it back in the case. (you DID use the little hex shaped standoffs to mount the mobo I hope?)
You might need a bios update to use the q6700. check the CPU support list and if the q6700 needs a bios other then the first one it is very possible.
You will need another compatible CPU to flash the bios with.
the cpu was on the mobo for about a year before the issue happened i havent Oc'd anything the motherboard is on the proper standoffs( not the first pc i have built) I will post more detailed specs after I try what you have suggested. Thanks in advance for all the help I will take it out of the case and start doing some tests
