Hi, i recently built my second computer, but can not get it to run. every time i turn it on, it runs for a few seconds, and then seems to restart itself. most of the time it gets to the screen were it displays the motherboard name, but sometimes it never even sends video single. please help.
Case: Antec Three Hundred
MoBo: ASRock 970DE3/U3S3
PSU: LOGISYS Computer PS550ABK
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB
DVD: SONY Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive Model DDU1681S-0B - OEM
Look at your mobo manual, according to ASROCK, your internal chassis speakre header is number 26 which is situated beneath your power LED header.
there will be a + and a -, you need one of these from your local computer store, plug it in, and if the mobo has error it will buzz the appropriate error code for you to decode. If it's silent, then it's a buggered motherboard and it will need replacing.
