Built computer not booting

Q: Built computer not booting

I built a new computer, but I think I hit a wrong button when setting it up. I got into the bios and set it up how I wanted it, but I closed out of the bios and now the computer isn't sending a signal to the monitor, keyboard, or mouse. The fans come on, the lights light up, I don't here any beeps from the motherboard. I haven't installed Windows yet.

Preferred Solution: Built computer not booting

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am relatively new at building computers. I just configured my rig:

XFX nForce 780i SLI Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3Ghz 6MB
OCZ 700w GameXStream PSU
*BFG GeForce 9800 GTX 512MB PCIe video card
*500 GB SATA II hard drive
*3GB DDR2-667 memory
*DVD-RW Dual layer drive
CoolerMaster CM690 Nvidia Ed. ATX Case

*The starred items I took from a previous computer of mine. The motherboard fried in the old computer, so I am not sure if any of these parts are damaged.

My problem is that I just connected everything and plugged in the PSU and the motherboard's light went on, which was a good sign, but when I pressed the power button on the case the power light went on for a brief second, then the computer didn't boot. The light was still working on my motherboard so I knew it wasn't the motherboard. I am pretty positive that the video card is broken, but my computer should be able to boot without it right? What could cause my computer to act like this? Thanks for the help.
 

A:Solved: Problems booting built computer

Since you have SLI Mobo You can only check if you Graphic Card is faulty by changing it with another one.
before that you should troubleshoot with what you have i.e
Disconnect your DVD rom from PSU & Mobo
Use only a single RAM first
you should Swap each RAM in Each Slots i.e 1st slot try 1st ram the boot, if not booting try the 2nd one in the same slot & so on.
So if you have 4 slots you will have to try 12times
if its not working even then, you then try to check your graphics card by putting it in another computer/ another computers card in your computer.
If everything if working when you disconnected the DVD Rom then either your DVD Rom is Faulty or the connecting cable is.

Best of Luck

Good morning all,

I am new to this forum and hope to god someone can help me, I was up until 2AM this morning trying to fix my new rig :(

Let me explain the issue and what I have done so far:-

I have an Asus Crosshair II Formula mobo, 8GB of OCZ 1066MHz Reaper X RAM, AMD Athlon X4 Black Edition and Windows Vista

When I first built the machine and switch on for the first time (with all 8 GB RAM in) I got a DRAM error on the LCD display of the Mobo and nothing shown on the screen.

I removed 2 of the sticks of RAM so down to 4GB and it booted, I installed Windows Vista 64Bit Ultimate and all worked well.

I now want to be able to use my other 2 sticks of RAM.

I have put the other 2 sticks back in and again I cant even boot to BIOS. After reading some forum posts I lowered my RAM down to on DDR2 800MHz and turned off Ganged mode??

This allows me to boot to BIOS perfectly and recognizes all 8GB in BIOS.

Now when I go through the BIOS and try to get into Windows, I immediately get rebooted, and this just keeps going in a circle.

I have tried to reinstall the OS but after I get past the intial black install screen I immediately get a BSOD telling me its stopped my computer to save it blah blah blah.

So, I cannot get into Windows, I cannot reinstall Windows.

I desperately want to use all 8GB..

Any ideas?

PS I have also updated to the latest BIOS on the Mobo....

Thanks in advance

Hi all. This is my first attempt at a custom built and it's not going so well. Here are my products:

-----

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ Brisbane 2.7GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor

Mobo: Foxconn A7VMX-K AM2+/AM2 AMD 780V Micro ATX AMD

When I turn the power on, the case fans work, the CPU fan works, the USB mouse has power, the non-USB keyboard doesn't work, the DVD drive doesn't eject, and I don't get anything on the monitor. It's as if the lights are on but no one is home.

I built my PC about a year ago and it had been working well until recently when it just stopped booting up. I asked my friend (who is IT savvy) and he suggested that I test/ replace my PSU. I was able to get a free replacement PSU from Amazon but even after connecting that (the one outside the tower in the photo), the PC doesn't seem to boot up. No lights, no sound .. nothing. The only thing that makes a little bit of noise is the new PSU. Is my motherboard gone? Or is it my power-switch that I need to fix? Or is it something else completely. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello, I am having issues booting to a bootable usb thumb drive or DVD on my HP Notebook 15-ay009dx. It has Windows 10 on it, although I'm not sure if it's 32 or 64 bit. I have long forgotten the password to the main account on this computer, so I am trying to use Trinity Rescue Kit to reset the password of the main account. I have gone into BIOS and disabled Secure Boot and enabled Legacy Boot mode, saved the changes, and exited. After rebooting and pressing F9 to go into the Boot Device Options menu, the only bootable options I see are OS Boot Manager (UEFI) and Boot from EFI File. I pressed F10 to go back into BIOS. and I see that Secure Boot is enabled and Legacy Support is disabled all over again! I quickly re-disabled Secure Boot and re-enabled Legacy support, saved the changes, rebooted, and the same problem is still happening! When I check back in BIOS, the settings for Secure Boot and Legacy Support are back to what they originally were again. After performing some research, I read that you should be prompted for some 4-digit number after disabling Secure Boot, but I did not get prompted to do so. At a loss, I went to the Security tab in BIOS and tried the Restore Security Settings to Factory Defaults and was prompted to enter in a 4-digit number, but I don't see anywhere to type in the given numbers. I've tried pressing the keys anyways and pressing Enter, but nothing happens. I can only press ESC to exit the Security Feature Reset Request window... Read more

Hello, I am trying to figure out when my laptop was actually built, what year? I got it through Fingerhut Catalog (I know, bad choice but at the timeit was the only way I could get one), anyway I got it in around 2009 or 2010, but it's called an "HP 200 Notebook PC" so I am just wondering if these models were actually BUILT in 2000? If so, then I'm using a 17-year old computer?!? I mean I got it in 2009 or 2010, don't remember exactly, but if it were built around that time it would only be about 10 years old, which would make me feel a little better!LOL! Anyone know???













Solved!

A:When was my computer built?

HP 2000 has nothing to do with year. That was the name of the Model series. None of the hardware in your laptop was available 17 years ago nor was Windows 7. The laptop was likely built in mid 2009 or later as that is when HP started releasing Windows 7 machines.

A:HI...I just built my new computer and

It is a feature of soltek mb. It is called redstorm overclocking. Just do not use it if you do not want to overclock. What the utility does is start increasing the fsb until it detects some corruption, then it decreases it slightly.

BTW good choice in mb. Do you have the 939 pin or 754 pin? There is a bios update for the 939 that addresses memory speed when using dual channel.

Everytime I go to shut down it says "installing updates" when I check the update log it says failed everytime.
The second problem came up in I tried installing DC Universe Online. The installation goes through flawlessly until the very end when it goes to install directx, it gives me an "internal failure" message and then just closes. I tried downloading from microsoft's website with the same result. I can however play Star Wars Galaxies without a hitch(much older game obviously) The video card says its rated for directx 11. I honestly have no idea what's going on lol.

First off, I did it!!! i actually BUILT my own computer and it RUNS!
It did not blow up or melt on the initial power-up! No major problems, only a few little issues that hopefully I can resolve soon! I am running a GA-7DX powered by a XP1600 CPU with 256 mb DDR RAM & 40gb HD. Oh yeah, got it all inside a nice Antec case too.

The biggest problem now is no audio at all. Can you guys help me? The M/B has the creative 5880 (i think) and under bios the sound chip is "enabled". Speakers are plugged into the appropriate connector. Windows XP is configured to use that Creative Sound Blaster so I assume it recognizes it as being there? I installed drivers for it from the gigabyte CD instead of the generic windows drivers. Windows is saying there is no problem with my hardware.

Am I supposed to install an actual CARD for the audio or is it all onboard with the ga-7dx board?

Oh, I have been very aware of the need for cooling with this chip. I think I'm doing ok. I love the BIOS health monitor! Hmmmmm......my cpu temp is around 117f.

Put in a 10GB HD and started it up. it started well, it told me to choose to either start the set up for Win98, Start the Computer with Win98 disk support, or simply Start without the Win98 support disk. I chose the first, it went fine and it formated my 10GB hard drive, afterwards it checked on a few things and it got to a screen where it told me to take out any Floppy Disks and press any button to restart.
So I pressed the "any" button....just kidding. I pressed "d" and it went black and restarted. It went back to the Gateway screen and it showed me those 3 options again. I chose the first thinking that it would maybe finish installing win98...but it simply showed all the checks it did and it stopped after it checked all the components like it did before on the "Win98 Setup" screen.

I am having a new computer built (after almost 8 years with my hP lemon). There are so many choices, but my technical savvy is limited. You guys seem helpful so I am going to appeal to you for advice.
Here is what my comp guy proposed:

Motherboard, Matx 945G DDR2-667/533/400 LGA

Micro Processor, P D CPU 805 64 bit Dual Core

x512mb DDR2-533 (PC2 4200)

120 GB 7200 RPM SATA NCQ

Windows Media Center

OK - now, my DH says I cannot go near any serious upgrades for a year or two and I do have a budget to work with, so what I need to know is... will this run Vista Windows Aero? Is that a good processor? Am I missing anything?

Obviously video is the other thing - my comp guy says the chipset has onboard graphics, but I am reading that's not the best choice. I want to play around with video editing, watch movies and do some gaming (or my kids do) but gamings not my focus.

Mainly I want solid, dependable, speedy and efficient (but I like the bells and whistles, too). Something that I won't need to put too much more into in the near future.

Is that enough info? Help...opinions....forgive my ignorance and please speak in small words (LOL).
Thanks
 

A:having new computer built - help

What is your budget?

For your Ram, you will want at least 1GB. I'm not sure what Vista Aero's req's are, but regular Vista reccomends 2GB.

HDD is fine (seagate is a good brand)

Motherboard: not sure about this one. Can't tell with out more info if it can handle a future upgrade to an Intel Conroe processor (currently owns for speed!).

CPU: The 805 is certainly a nice cpu, and at $100 its fairly cheap. But the new Conroe E6300 is close to twice as fast for $183. Againit comes down to your budget.

Vid card: Depends on what games you want to play. Currently the radeon 9600 would be "lowest" card you would wnat to use to play todays games at low res. A Nvidia 6600 or above would be better.

If you want to do a little 'window shopping', check out www.newegg.com for competitive prices.

Don't skimp on the power supply! You can get a decent one from FPS for around $40 at newegg.

I've tried it on a CRT and LCD monitor, and with the onboard card (GeForce 6100) the video card (Radeon X300) and an old monitor card. Below are the specs:

Gigabyte GA-M55PLUS-S3G
AMD AM2 Athlon 64 3200+
Seagate 320GB SATAII
Corsair 512MB 667DDR2
CoolerMaster Musketeer
Pioneer DVD Burner
350W Power Supply

Please offer any help you can, I'm counting on you TechSpot
 

A:Just built a new computer.

I am assuming you are not passing the POST test? Are you getting any beeps?

You'll need to go back to the basics to help troubleshoot.

Take out your motherboard, and set it on a box beside your case.

Intall ONLY the cpu/heatsink, one stick of ram and the 2 power connections from your PSU to the motherboard. (both the 24 pin and the ATX12).

Connect your case's speaker wire to the motherboard as well.

Use a screwdriver to "short" the two pins usually connected to the case's power on switch.

Connect your monitor to the onboard graphics.

Are you able to post?

Hi all

Looking for some information. I'm replacing 3 pc's in the business I work for. We use custom software and have to remain on Windows xp to avoid issues with the database hooking correctly. We have used mostly Dell pc's to run our software, and from time to time need to reinstall Windows as needed. With the Dell systems, I wipe the partition and insert a disk, reinstall, add drivers plus our software, then I'm done. I'm considering building 3 new pc's maybe around the i5 level for workstations. I was curious if there was a way to build in the Windows XP serial number like Dell and other vendors do. Is this a specific type of main board ? A function in the bios ? I would love to be able to duplicate this, if it's possible.

Thank you

A:Windows install / vendor built vs homebrew / built in serial

You can not use the same serial number for a different computer. Its illegal. You'll need to buy a copy of Windows XP for each computer or buy a Set copy that will work on 3 different computers.

Hopefully someone can give me a hand.

Thank you for your time.

A:Help with BSOD, computer was just built!!!

Two issues

1-You have a driver from 2005 that is a HUGE cause of BSOD's in win 7 called RTCORE64.SYS, it is the msi afterburner driver (used in overclocking). It needs at least to be updated and if it cant it needs to be removed.

2-When that is removed your crashes are releated to a memory exception (Probably related to your DirectX) Please run the below tests to find which driver and test your memory.


* If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

* If you have raid update its Driver.

Memtest.





Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5-7 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.



RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Driver verifier






Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline edi... Read more

I?m having an issue with getting everything to work properly on a computer I built. It refuses to start off any of my Hard Drives regardless of if they are set as Master, Slave etc. It boots off the Ubuntu disk every now and then and will boot off the Windows XP Disc and won't boot off the Windows 7 Disk. I can successfully format and copy files to the HDD but when I restart the computer to finish the installation it won?t boot off the HDD, it just has a flashing _ . I have tried all sorts, switching out ram and different Hard Drives, DVD Drives, CD Drives. Only the basic components are installed:
CPU - Pentium Dual Core 2.2ghz
Heatsink - Stock Intel

HDD - 20GB IDE
DVD Drive
RAM -2x 512mb 533 DDR2


I just can?t pinpoint the problem. I have tried changing the IDE cables but that doesn't work either. When I plug a HDD that has Windows XP into it, it tells me there is missing files. I'm completely lost.

I am helping to build a computer at the moment. I am using some good stuff from the old one and a new case, motherboard, graphics card, soundcard, and hard drive.
One problem is that the monitor won't stay on. This is new and it is powered when I press the button the green light vomes on then changes back to yellow. The computer is running at this point. However, I have not been able to install an operating system. Is it necessary to do this before trying to see a signal on the monitor? It will be Win XP, by the way. What order should it be done in? OS - Programs - BIOS?
Also, the two disk drives I took out of the old computer (DVD-ROM and CD-RW) won't work in this one. They are powered and light up but no matter how long I hold down the drive open button or press it the drawer on neither drive will open. A person I spoke to said that perhaps the motors have failed in both drives but I think that for them both to bre affected at the same time is highly unlikely. he thinks it would be best to replace the drives.

You thoughts on these please.
 

A:Built computer - having problems

check for bent pins on the video plug - common problem with video.

make sure everything seated correctly

instal OS - then install motherboard drivers, for video, audio, lan etc etc - then your additional programs.

if you are having problems it would be a good idea to connect it up outside the box with the minimum componets - DO NOT put on static bag as this is conductive - put mobo on the cardboard box - sometimes the mounting bolts on the case short out the mobo.

i dont htinkk theres a hardware problem with the drives - it maybe a symtom of the other problems you have - but lets get the PC basic config running 1st

Hello all, I just put a new computer together. Upon startup it went through the self check. It recognized my HD and CD-ROM drive and correctly identified my RAM, CPU, ect. It then gave me two options, press delete to enter BIOS or press enter to continue. I though there was more self check so I hit enter. Now it's saying...

VERIFYING DMI POOL.......
BOOT DISK:
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER

Now this is all it will do, I can't even get back to BIOS with ESC or Delete or anything. I've tried loading up Windows and the software for the motherboard...neither will load. I've rebooted a bunch of times hoping to go back to self check, switched the CD-ROM and HD around on the MoBo (HD is old school ribbon ATA, not SATA), switched the jumpers around on the DVD-ROM...I really can't figure out what it wants. Right now the HD is in the primary ATA input and the CD-ROM is set to "master" and in the secondary ATA input per instructions that came with the MoBo. Any ideas on where to go from here? I think it's trying to boot an Operating System when the MoBo software isn't installed. Help! Thanks in advance

A:Got new computer built...can't get XP installed

Easy fix. Boot the computer, and when it states "press del to enter setup", tap the Del key until you get into the BIOS. In there, change the boot order to CD-ROM first, HDD second. Pop in your windows install disk, save settings in BIOS, exit. It will reboot, and then search for your CD rom first, and then boot the windows setup.

Once windows is all installed, change the boot settings back to HDD first, CD rom second.

n-joy.

Hi,

I'm looking for any advice and expertise please.

I've recently built my a Windows 7 desktop and i'm getting all kinds of blue screens.
I have tried doing a clean install, i've done a system restore since then to when it was working best and i've still had BSOD.
Originally it kept BSOD when i had two sticks of RAM in (at least once every 30 min) and worked fine when only one was in. I've since done a clean install and have both in.

I've attached the dmp files from the two BSOD i've had since i have done the clean install.
The only programs installed are Avast! (6.0.1000) and the software to run the wireless dongle (Netgear WG111v3) plus whatever came with Windows 7.

I've ran dskchk and sfc /scannow with no errors reported.
I've ran memtest86 and that returned no errors (though only ran once)
The motherboard has MemtestOK! and that shows no errors.

Motherboard: Asus M4A88T-V EVO USB3 (the latest drivers for the chipset, audio, graphics, lan and usb3 from the amd website have been installed)

THe drivers for the wireless mouse and keyboard are install as is for the wireless dongle.

The BIOS is the latest chipset as well.

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 640 Processor 3.00GHz
4gb of RAM
Windows 7 Ultimate x64
If you can help or if you need any more info that might help please let me know.

Hey this is my first time trying a tech forums, so if they are a helpful as people say they are i plan on using them more often to solve problems i encounter.

I built this computer using parts i had left over from an old computer that was faulty.

I had a brand new hard drive which was compatible, with all this parts, thinking that the problems i had with the old computer was software related. I put it all together and started to install windows xp, but during the copying of files stage the computer shut off and when started back up wouldn't work.

So I put in my brother's spare motherboard (which is compatible with all the left over parts). Hoping that to solve the problem, it finished the copying of files part but now gets a blue screen flash and shut off as windows is still installing (Beyond the blue screen installation part). Says windows needs to restart, and keeps restarting to the blue flash screen. It continues to do this...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I am completely new to computers, and really wanted to build a gaming PC. I ended up purchasing the parts and had someone help me build it. On the 3rd day of gaming on it, I started to get random BSOD's. They would go away for a week, then come back and happen multiple times per day. The whole thing has been really strange and frustrating.

Everyone I talked to suspected the memory to be the problem, so I RMA'd it, did not fix the problem. I just want to get this fixed because I haven't been able to enjoy my PC since it was built over this. I get to have some fun playing games, but always know it is going to happen again.

I am almost ready to either build my own computer or have it built but have a couple of questions.

I am going to use an Intel Dual Core Pentium 3.0 ghz processor and an Intel 975X motherboard.

A video card will be needed and I vaguely remember seeing something on this site about some of them interfering with the operation of USB 2.0 external drives (I have four of them running). Naturally, I don't want to buy anything that will interfere with them.
Cost does not matter but I do not play games and so the latest and greatest would probably be a waste of money.

Also, I have seen "memory timing" mentioned here and other places. Is this something that I will need to do and if so, is there information available about how to do it and recommended settings? I have never done anything like that to a computer.

This week, I am going to take my list of components to a local shop and ask what it would cost to have them build it. Last time, their quote was less than I would pay for just the components. If that happens again, they will end up doing the building. Even if it is just a little more than my cost for components.

Thanks

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. If empty (or non existent) please look in the following folders. C:\windows (the dmp should be called memory.dmp), and C:\windows\LiveKernelReports\Watchdog.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
