hi, ive decided to build a pc, ive put it all together and switched on and i get 4 short beeps (second long each)then the DRAM light stays lit. then it attempts to boot, the chassis fans spin but the cpu one doesnt, then it all stops after a second and keeps trying for about 5 minutes before 4 short beeps again.
Ive pressed the mem ok button to configure the memory it does the above, but after 8minutes of testing, i get the 4 beeps and then the fans continue spinning, but the dram light is still lit and it doesnt start on the power button or show anything on screen.
i took it to pc world and they couldnt work it out as they said they tried booting it without the graphics card, and tried new memory and said the cpu or motherboard must be faulty , so i replaced them and ive got the exact same problem this time. surely its not another faulty mboard or cpu? ive tried the power on button, which does nothing and i cant do any bios as i get no signal to the monitor. one thing i found weird was that the power was to the mouse but not the keyboard.
the motherboard - new - asus P8Z68 - V
the pcu - new - intel core i5 processor i5-3450
the psu - 6months old - corsair GS700
the hard drive is 8 years old from my old pc
the dimm3 is new and in the a2 slot as instructions informed.
the graphics card is pny Geforce 9400 GT
i just want it to work and im begging its something so simple and preferably not too expensive!! please help
