Solved

New pc build, boot issues.

I recently ordered and built a gaming pc, but i can not get it working. There is no video, but GPU fan is running. There is no beep code. When I connect my keyboard, it doesn't power it. It doesn't power my wifi card. I can not shut the computer off with the front panel power button. And last but not least; there is no internal GPU on the Mobo. Can someone please help me? I'm going insane over here.

Specs:

Asus M5A97 R2.0
AMD FX6300 Black Edition
Radeon Sapphire R7 240 2Gb
Crucial Ballistix 1866Mhz 8Gb

  1. If you want some one to answer this you might wanna include the PSU in your stats
  2. well have you got an os installed?BTW Pics of every component in your pc please?And does you Graphics card require additional power?
  3. AMD FX6300 is the PSU. The GPU does not require additional power, and i do not yet have an OS installed. I will add a photo just as soon as i can find a suitable camera.
  4. If you don't have an os installed how's it gonna work bro?Try something like Windows 8.1?And Photos ASAP.
  5. How do I install my OS without being able to see anything?
  6. the fx is a CPU... Power Supply Unit... PSU
  7. my bad :P i've been up all night trying to fix this shit, i'm tired... PSU is a Cooler Master B600
  8. ATX 12V V2.3
  9. its the os then.. that psu is fine.. you need to get an os and drop it onto a disk or a usb then change the boot order in bios if you can get that far..

    check the video cables bro and reset monitor something is going fishy some where if you can even see bios.. make sure mobo is in there nice n snug and all appropriate power cords etc are attached inside
  10. Problem is, with no integrated graphics on the mobo, how do i access the BIOS?
  11. the integrated graphics and the bios are unrelated my friend.. my mobo does not have integrated on it.. if you can get the screen to kick up it usually very quickly says press F(number here) f8 f5 f9 something of that nature
  12. Okay. But i'm not getting any signal from the GPU, and no reaction from keyboard in any USB or PS/2 connectors.
  13. Is your gpu connected to the mobo firmly are the fans running?Bro btw which interface are you using DVI,HDMI or VGA?The cable could e the problem too.BTW use zotac usb maker and install win8 using it onto a 4GB flash drive.BTW can you check if you can get to the bios setup?

    I've tried several HDMI and VGA cables. Fan is running on GPU and CPU. I'm not getting any picture, so I can't see BIOS at all. No USB ports appear to be functional, as I can't connect and use a keyboard. Only time it reacted was when i put a flash drive in the flashback bios port, but that did not work either. No beep error message either, so I suspect the problem may be the mobo?
  15. I would vote mobo.. I just cant imagine what else would do this
  16. I'm going to completely strip the pc down one more time, and if that doesn't work, I will try with another mobo as soon as i can get my hands on one. Thanks for all the help so far :)
  17. New mobo did not work :( Not booting any external ports so i can't get anywhere with a keyboard...
  18. Best answer
    my guess your monitor/cables are jacked up and you should try some different ones... seriously if swapping the mobo did no good and you have tried all different cords and monitors.. its only one thing left bro.. swap that gpu

    Edit - This is not a program error or really even a mobo issue if everything is clicking n whirring. Even with no coding or OS or bootloaders the screen should still turn on if your gpu is active and in the right slot on the mobo
  19. Borrowed a friends comp and swapped parts, figure out that the issue was a doa cpu, replaced it and everything booted up nicely :) Thanks for all the help, im a lot more prepared for my next build.
  20. Well All is Well then.
