New build won't turn on Tags: New Build Light Power New Build Systems Last response: September 7, 2012 3:01 AM in Systems Share foxh0und September 6, 2012 10:13:52 PM I've just built my first PC but when I press the power button, the fans start to spin and light up then about 1/4 of a second later everything turns off.. whats going on? More about : build turn spat55 September 6, 2012 10:21:09 PM Check the power connections, is the CPU power head in? If you can't see what you have missed then unplug everything and try again. You should have, CPU header, Sata' in the HDD and DVD drive, One or two PCI-E in the GPU, and one ATX into the motherboard. m 0 l spat55 September 6, 2012 10:26:09 PM PM ME IF YOU NEED MORE HELP. m 0 l Related resources My new build occasionally won't turn on - Forum New Build - Power light flickers, but system won't turn on. - Forum New build won't turn on - Forum New build won't turn on - Forum Computer won't turn on new build, Ethernet port goes on but turns off - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Any other ideas? m 0 l foxh0und September 6, 2012 10:59:49 PM Update - the ATX wasn't in all the way, I now have a blue light on the case, but still no spinning fans or power... did it short the board by not having the cpu header connected? o.O m 0 l adgjlsfhk September 6, 2012 11:01:45 PM You should not have shorted the board. If you have a blue light, you have some power. Are case fans spinning? m 0 l foxh0und September 6, 2012 11:06:47 PM New update... the JFP1 socket wasn't correct as I had placed the power in the wrong connector, but i'm still getting no image on my monitor, but the pc is on and stays on. m 0 l foxh0und September 6, 2012 11:56:39 PM Another update, I took out the graphics card since i've heard about driver issues or something, and i'm installing windows now, hopefully the graphics card isn't broken. I guess I'll find out soon enough :') m 0 l adgjlsfhk September 7, 2012 3:00:04 AM Your idea to give a youtube video of your build is a really good one. I'll try to recommend this to others needing help. m 0 l adgjlsfhk September 7, 2012 3:01:54 AM The card is most likely not broken. What you will have to do is download the driver once you get into windows. From there, shut down and re-install the graphics card. BTW what gpu are you using? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
