This is my second build, and I've run into a problem.
Last night I had everything set up started the system installed win7, and I was installing all my other drivers. Then I wanted to see if I had any audio, I didn't, so I thought I had just plugged the cable into the wrong slot. So I unplug it and then my video cuts off. So I check the video cable to see if it was still in, it was, I check the monitor and it's fine. So I end up touching the power switch and nothing, I hold the power switch for 5 sec, and nothing. Then I end up hold it for other 30 sec nothing, hit the reset button nothing. So my system is still running with no video, and I decide to cut it off and hit the psu switch.
I've been testing the ram(1 stick and no sticks at all) and my mobo isn't beeping anymore with start up.
I don't get any beeps or video with startup, but fans are on. Did I short the system? Please help.
Asrock 970 pro 3 mobo
Amd fx 4170 am3+
16gb of Ddr 3 1600
500 gb hdd
2x nvidia 550ti
If no beeps with only CPU and CPU fan installed, then it might be a motherboard issue. I would test again with the board outside of the case. If still the same, I would RMA both the board and CPU, or have them tested at a local shop.
