    Gigabyte GA 970
    AMD FX 6300
    8gb of corsair vengeance DDR3 ram
    hyper 212 evo
    and for test purposes i'm using an AMD R9 270x (when i finish the build i'm going to put my gtx 970 in it)
    All powered by a 7 or so year old 600 watt psu which i am almost* certain is not the problem

    Occasionally it will turn on for a few seconds and turn off. most of the time the fans will spin and everything lights up but nothing is displayed on the monitor

  5. Do you have speakers or earphone? Plug in and boot with only MB and CPU, unplug hard drive, gpu, ram

  7. before you go tossing the thing out the window out of frustration, you sate " I've done everything i can think of and gone through the whole "PERFORM THESE STEPS before posting about POST/boot/no video problems", problem is I have no general idea what those steps you took so I will ask one question.

    - have you removed the GTX 970 and replaced it with another video card ?

    Before it started to no post? I turned of the pc and plugged in the front panel USBs then turned it back on and it hasn't posted since. Thinking i may have shocked the motherboard?

    Try resetting the bios. If that does not work, Try unplugging the front panel usb.

    I have reset the BIOs and I no longer have the build inside a case so the USBs are not connected

  13. Dissconnect every single thing from the mobo minus the PCIE connectors and the cpu and atx connectors if you still have any plugged in., and then plug them back in firmly just to make sure you didn't knock any power cables loose. As for shocking the motherboard, Did you feel sort of a low voltage shock on your fingers when you touched the motherboard?, technically it only takes a miniscule amount of static build up to shock a component and most of the time you wont be able to feel it... but stranger things have happened.

    I did that and now the fans spin for a few seconds and shut off. I got a internal speaker in the mail today but it doesn't make any sound when i turn on the system.

    I unplugged and reseated everything again. Still nothing. also I didn't feel a shock.
