Hi. Ive had three of the MSI Z77 MPower now. And ive tried thousands of different things to make it work, except changing the power supply. I have a Chill Innovation Cp-1000M 1000W.
So can a power supply ever give the motherboard to much power, so it may be damaging to the motherboard? When i try to get the new built pc to start, it only starts for 1 second and then turns itselfs off. Sometimes after the first time I try to turn it on, there comes some kind of delay from when i push the power button on the motherboard, until it starts for 1 second.
On the information to the PSU, it says "1000W continuous load". Does that mean that the motherboard might be getting to much power?
The power supply will only use how much the PC needs. So even if you had a 1000W PSU and the PC was using 350W, the PSU would only draw 350W. I think continuous load just means that if it had to run at 1000W constantly, it could... That would be a bad idea though .
Thanks man. But do you think that it might help to change the PSU?
did you try to start the system outside the case with the parts laying on a cardboard ? also i would check if every power cable are connected to the motherboard and that the standoff post are in between the case and the motherboard .
It might be worth a try if you've done everything else
Try re-seating your CPU. I had a start-stop problem that was aggravating me forever, and then I removed and reseated my CPU and it worked.
