Just built my first pc.. turns on, but nothing happens
Here are the specs of my machine:
ASUS P8P67 Pro Intel P67 Motherboard Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40 GHz Quad-Core Unlocked EVGA GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) FPB 1GB GDDR5 PCIe Seagate Barracuda 1TB Low Power Hard Drive Sony Optiarc AD-7260S-0B 24x DVDRW Drive Cooler Master RC-932-KKA3-GP Case and 700W PSU Patriot Viper Xtreme Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 RAM
I'm upgrading the evga card asap...
So this is what happens:
I turn it on, it powers up and instantly turns off- and then turns back on. At this point it stays on, but nothing happens on screen. The fans are on, cooler running, the mobo is lit up (two leds are lit, CPU and Power), the dvd tray works, etc... My only thought is that the ram i installed is somehow installed incorrectly (going to take one out and move it over one slot- the slots are A1 A2 B1 B2, and right now i have the sticks right next to eachother in the A1 A2 config.. gonna try A1 B1 (the colors match on the mobo for the card slots, blue and black alternating b/t A1 A2 B1 B2 so maybe you should have them in the same colored slot?)
More aboutjust built turns happens
that RAM config test did not work... this is very puzzling.
Does it give a series of beeps after you turn it on?
