I just built a new gaming computer and finished it yesterday. It ran for about 2 hours then just shut off without making any noises/beeps. Now.. if I hit the power button it turns on the lights and fans for about a second and then shuts off. I tried the paper clip test and the PSU turns my fans and my lights on. Does this mean the Mobo is junk? Everything is brand new!
720 G Seagate HD SATA
NVDIA GeForce 295 GTX
AMD Phenom 4x Black Edition
750W Corsair PSU
ASUS M4A79T Deluxe Motherboard AM3
2 X2G Corsair Dominator DDR3
Any help would be appreciated! This is my very first computer build so I don't know very much on the technical aspects of it.
You can get a speaker for that pretty cheap at a local store. If you plan to build more computers it's a worthwhile investment and saves a lot of trial and error, esp with assembling/disassembling/reassembling entire motherboards.
