First problem: I recently built my first desktop and did every single part carefully. I got rid of any electric shock stored in me and even did an external boot-up test and heard the single beep noise. After that I put all the parts into the tower case with the right stand offs and screws. I press the power button, it gets to the BIOS and it just stays there frozen. I try to press DEL and nothing happens.
Second Problem: For some unknown reason if I spam DEL I can get to the BIOS and actually change settings, everything reads fine and is at the perfect temp 30-40 degrees celcius. It reads my mouse/keyboard/hdd/odd all correctly. However trying to install Windows 7 64-bit home premium is where the problem begins. It can't detect my HDD, I tried changing to AHCI to IDE and vice versa. I even tried turning the desktop off unplugging it and the same thing happens.
Mobo: gigabyte h61ma-d2v
CPU: Intel i5 3rd gen
RAM: g.skill 1066 2x2GB
GPU: hd6670 2gb amd radeon hd
PSU: coolermaster 525w
HDD: 500gb seagate
I tried unplugging parts one by one and turning on the pc still no luck (two problems keep arising). Please help it has been almost 7 hours and I can't get anywhere.
This just got wierder, my Ubuntu set up disk is able to detect my HDD... and I'm currently installing it now. Maybe my Windows disc was burned too fast? I heard rumours that burning windows discs causes problems. They say the speed of burning is to be x4. I'll get back to you about the mobo problem once Ubuntu finishes installing.
Update: Ubuntu works fine its just the BIOS keeps freezing...
