Just built my new PC yesterday, and every time i start the PC (from the very first boot), it will boot for about 2 seconds and then shut off, then boot again perfectly fine. It only happens when I'm turning the PC on, not when rebooting, and apart form that initial shut down there are no other issues it presents.
My desktop will do that only if it is unplugged and i plug it back in, it will boot for a second shutdown and reboot, I think it has to do with overclock settings and the PC thinking that the OC failed and it needs to reset it..
If it was an unseated component, a) it would be causing other problems, and b) the occurrences would not be so specific or predictable. Regardless, I have checked anyway and everything is seated correctly.
It ONLY happens when I'm booting from shutdown, it never happens when i reboot.
As for the overclock... At the time of making this thread it had only been overclocked for about 2 hours. This issue has been going on since i first built the PC 2 days ago; before i had even touched the BIOS.
Paid more attention, and when the PC boots successfully (after the initial hesitation), during POST i get 2 short beeps, a pause, and then another beep (2-1). Not sure if it's a beep code though, I can't find any info at all and it seems too short to be a code.
Not with a pause though, there's a very distinct pause between 2nd and 3rd beep.
Everything is fine apparently, contacted EVGA and the restart is the BIOS checking and testing the settings before booting with them. As for the beeps, the 2 beeps indicated the BIOS loading, and then after a pause it beeps once for every USB device connected.
