I've just built a new pc. Gigabyte EP35C motherboard, Intel core 2 processor, and Gigabyte graphics card, plus a 500gig sata drive, and a sata optical drive. Now, I think that I've put it all together properly, but when I power up, the cpu fan spins, the board lights come on, then afew sweconds later, it powers off - then it starts up again - then off, and so on. I'm getting nothing on the screen. I obviously want the POST screen, or the bios. Has anyone come across this problem, please. Have I got a faulty board, or processor, or have I done something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance. Allan.
thanks skidzy I bought it all off the same dealer - board,cpu and ram. I've checked the headers - they seem ok, and I'm sure they're in the right place. It's got the 20 pin + 4 atx connected ok. the 4 pin 12 volt is connected. I've tried running it with the sata drive, and the optical drive disconnected - same problem. there is 1 thing - the psu fan isn't running!!!!!!! Allan
Actually, I made a mistake - the psu fan IS working, its just so quiet, I couldn't hear it, and it looked stationary. Anyway, the problem was a duff memory module. I bought 2 x 1gig 1088 corsair baracudas, and one of them was not working. All fixed now. The psu is EZ cool 500 watts. thanks for your help and interest. I'll close this thread. cheers Allan
