computer won't boot D:
« on: March 12, 2011, 01:37:03 pm »
Sometime during today, i wanted to register my motherboard. So after it was working perfectly, everthing normal I took out the motherboard (disconnected all the wires first, computer unplugged), took it out, looked at the serial number and registered it. So I put it back in, I booted it up, and it shut down after 7 seconds. I look at all my connections, I saw the 8 pin motherboard power unplugged. I plugged it back in, still shutting down. I Cleared the CMOS, I took it apart again, re-built it, I have checked ALL my connections, and I can't figure this out. HELP!!!   :( :( :( :( ???

edit: also nothing shows up on the monitor during the short boot time

I think you were loaded with static electricity, and that you actually have hit something vital, destroying it with the little electricity in your hand (sorry for being vague?)

Hmm I hope this isn't due to incompatibility between some parts. X.x I know this happened when TsukasaZX built a computer and he never could figure out the problem. :/
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Last time I got my motherboard broken, I either paid 400€ for a new one or 400€ for a new computer so I took a new computer.

Can you boot the OS or force your computer to do it by pressing F2 on boot?

Is not possible, because the computer worked good before he took the motherboard out.
I wonder what it could be ???

Do you have another computer around that you can try each part of the "broken" computer's parts in? If none of the other chips are broken, then it's either the processor or mobo...

No, it wont accept input. Also when it shuts down it turns itself back on, then shuts down again :S
There is also a 2-3 sec delay between the computer power button and when it actually turns on

edit: no other parts.

Hmm... Not many ways to find your problem, then...

Does your mobo have integrated video? If it does, switch over to that instead of any video card you are using and see if anything appears on the screen...

no, its a P67 motherboard and it runs a GTX 460 hawk

edit: if this helps it doesnt even go through the bios or anything, the monitor LED stays orange (no signal)

Have you checked to see if there are any shorts yet? Maybe a screw you forgot to put in correctly or a nut on the board... A quick way to check is to pick it up and gently twist it a bit; if you hear rattling, try to find the cause..

EDIT: Since it is booting then stopping, it could be a faulty power supply, though it would be really unlikely and that wouldn't explain why it isn't starting up the BIOS.

no the PSU is DEFINITELY not faulty. There are no screws loose since i tried to take it back out and put it back in and screw it in again. They are all hand-tight
