Hello, I just built this computer last weekend. Everything worked perfectly until now.
Gigabyte GA 970A D3
AMD FX 6100
Kingston Hyperx red edition 1600 2x4GB cards
Sapphire Radeon 6870
Rosewill 650W PSU
Seagate Constellation 500GB
Lite On DVD-RW
Today the power went out [in my house] for 10 seconds and when I powered on the PC again I get:
No post beep
Nothing on screen
CPU fan wiggles every 5 seconds but doesn't spin
Everything else powers up including a case fan wired to the motherboard
I hear the HDD restart every 20 seconds
I tried removing all external cables and removing cmos battery. Let sit for 10 minutes and retried with no effect.
I just tested the voltage on the power supply and the outlet with a multimeter. Everything seems to be within tolerance. Everything points to the MB so far but is there any way to tell if the cpu is the culprit?
