Everything works, but SYSTEM WONT BOOT!

Ok! BASICALLY screen/system will not BOOT! i've properly gone through all the wires and i can see i have plugged everything in PROPERLY! i mean there are no other pluggins for the wires, The Lights/LED's work, all the fans in the case plus the heatsink fan work, Except! the GPU fans as soon as i turn the computer on the fans will spin for a good mila second, also i plugged in system speakers for post beep but i hear nothing, i even plugged in a mouse and the laser also was turned on. I've gone to way to many forums kinda like a patient going to numerous doctors to try and figure what the problem is NO LUCK at all! but im still trying! anyways i REALLLY hope its not my motherboard cuz i mean i spent a lot of money on that and im hoping theres a solution to this problem. Here's the system parts.

Can't find the optical drive but it was cheap 14 dollars shouldn't matter.

1.unplugged GPU plugged it back in problem still occurs
2.plugged VGA cable behind GPU, same problem still occurs system won't boot
3.plugged in 8 pin Auxiliary cable in the right pluggin
4.plugged memory close to the CPU slot

i think thats about all that i have done to try and fix the problem, any help that i get IS MUCH APPRECIATED!

More about everything works system wont boot
  1. Sounds like the power switch is plugged in backwards or the board is shorting out on the case. You didn't put in standoffs in where they didn't match up to the motherboard, did you? Are you sure the CPU is in correctly and no bent pins?
  2. k i just check the CPU theres nothing wrong with it pins are fine, i never put in any stand off screws because i didn't need to the case had built in stand offs not screws, the mother board has six holes i made sure they were all aligned properly theres nothing else underneath the motherboard that shouldn't be there cuz i never put anything in the case before mounting the motherboard in, i dont really understand what you mean by the power switch? what does that have to do with the system not booting?

    if the connector to the power switch isn't plugged into the board correctly, it won't power up. It can plug in two ways. Try turning that plug 180 degrees and then try to boot
  4. k just tried that unfortunately no luck, motherboard is probably shorting out, ugh this is really frustrating.
  5. Have you tried stripping it down to it's bare components and bread-boarding it, yet? Take the Mobo out of the case, plug the bare minuimum into it and try turning it on again while the mobo and board are sitting out of the case.
  6. i would start by removing the video card from the equation. try booting with on board video into BIOS - you could also try each memory slot with your one board - I'm suspecting the mb is having an issue with your memory
  7. Yes, breadboarding is the next step. Set the mobo on the anti-static packing it came in and put everything back together. You can short out the power switch pegs with a paper clip. If it still doesn't work, something is bad...
  8. Here is our standard checklist. Try everything even if you think you did before.

  9. k looks like my motherboard is broken cuz i tried bread boarding and nothing which zdbc13 said is bad sooo i don't know what to do now.
  10. Did you follow the steps in the link I provided?
  11. Btw i followed all the steps, none of it helped especially the post beep, it stays quiet all i hear is the heatsink fan turning on i've tried everything.
  12. Have you tested the PSU yet?
  13. Um what is the PSU?
  14. You followed that checklist step by step?

    The one thing that really stands out about your computer is the Pareema? brand RAM. They are a very new company and have been around for less than a year. Therefore there is really no track record to say it's good or bad RAM in general. Personally I would not have picked it but it may very well be OK. Some motherboards can have problems with 8GB sticks and being it's an off brand both make it stand out as a likely problem.

    Do you get any display at all? Does the board POST? You see a BIOS screen?
  15. I get nothing the screen is completely blank, it's like it get no connection. I have followed it step by step I'm honestly not lieing I've tried everything. I tried booting it with out the ram and I haven't heard any beeps or anything, I have a speaker plugged in aswell and m pretty sure it's in the right pin I double checked but as I said before no beeps.
  16. Did you try using the onboard graphics?
