Is it new? if yes, you probably connected the power supply wrong. most of these things are fine when they get shipped, there's just so many ways to not connect it properly that it's probably that. double check the manual of the mobo and the power supply and make sure youve got every connection right and tight. I have an engineering degree and I still forget to connect something sometimes, causing boot errors...

If it's not that, you have to think CPU connection or other peripheral connection is bad/defective/loose, and the motehrboard is just doing it's job by sutting down to prevent a fire. Doubel check your CPU connection. Did you use thermal paste? Is it snug/pproperly installed? An improperly installed CPU or other peripheral can cause spontaneous mobo shutdown, for good reason. The mobo manufacturer soesnt want you to fry your other components.

If not that, you may want to call your mobo manufacturer, you;'ll be surprised how willing they are to talk you through basic problems starting up. The lack of beeps or lights does bother me a bit in terms of pointing to a bad power connection, or a bad mobo. Usually you would rely on beeps and lights to diagnose what's wrong, as you know.

The mobo manufacturers are usually pretty good about shipping you a replacement if needed.

Good luck!

Check heatsink/fan for CPU first. If this is Ok then try a new power supply.

Please follow the following :

* Make sure that you have connected the Monitor cable firmly.
* Make sure that CPU fan is spinning else check & make it run (your pc won't boot if you missed your fan).
* Check for any unusual beep sounds after you switch on.
* Remove your RAM, Power cables, other Add on cards. Clean/wipe them properly and reinsert them correctly.
* If your PC installed Graphic Card, remove it and run your PC again using your onboard vga port.
* Replace your Power Supply Unit with another good conditioned one.
If the problem persist check your processor.

Just now i shut down my computer normally, an hour later when i tried switching it on again i cannot, the monitor dosent show any image, it even not shows the BIOS, the fan tuns just for a while and then...


It sounds like a hardware problem. Check the obvious like the power cables and plug it into a different wall socket to make sure that isn't the problem.

Does the computer beep when it starts up. The pattern of these 'POST' beeps can help you determine the problem. However if the computer doesn't beep, doesn't activate the BIOS and the hard drive doesn't spin up (with the HD light flickering) then you either have a fried motherboard or processor. Not an easy or cheap thing to fix.

Continous Beeping sound


Hi neosw,

Could you provide a little more detail?

Was this a previously working set-up or is this a new build?

If this was a previously working set-up have you changed anything?

When you switch on the PC
  • do you see anything on the screen, does the monitor remain in standby?
  • are any of the fans running?
  • does the hard drive spin up?
  • does the beeping sound stop after a short while?
The reason I ask these questions is because a continues beeping usually means that the BIOS is not seeing the processor, or that the power to the processor is not correct. With some BIOS manufactures it can also mean the processor clock speed is not set
correctly.

Please don't take this the wrong way but...if you provide greater detail in your question, the easier it for us to diagnose your problem, otherwise we can only make educated guesses.

I hope this has been of some help.

Regards,

Spare head 2
