No beep codes no post no video

I recently purchased a new motherboard and processor because my old processor overheated. I installed CPU, memory, and video card and i get all the fans and lights on but no beep codes or POST when the system is running. There is no video, although the screen does flicker when i turn the power switch on. In short, all fans + lights on, no POST or beep codes. I RMA'd this motherboard because i thought it was the problem but am getting the same problem with the new motherboard Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz LGA 775 MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card 650 watt power supply

Re: no beep codes no post no video

Hi, sounds like a RAM problem, if you have 2 RAM sticks, pull one out and put the second one in DIMM one, try that then try 1st one in DIMM 1, next test is to try a friends RAM. IF all fails go back to where you purchased the board and have them test it under warranty. Regards mistyman

The hard drive would not show up until you initialize it in the control panel. With everything off the motherboard you should get some post beep. Put the ram back and try again, the next thing to install is the video to see if there is any indication of function. Keep adding things back. If there is no post beep with just the motherboard then you need to test the PSU and if it is OK then CPU or motherboard is bad.

The beeping is a trouble code. The beeps will be different based on the reason for it not working correctly. Generally when a PC beeps as such, it is caused by a hardware issue, most likely a removable device such as memory or a video card or other addin card. If the computer has an addin video card, but also has onboard video, I would pull the card out and plug the monitor into the onboard video. if that does not change anything, replace the card and begin looking elsewhere. I would start by removing the memory (RAM sticks) from the computer and see if the you get a picture after that. If so I would check to see which memory stick is bad by trying them in there first with 1 stick and as it continues to function adding another. Remember to only install and remove components with the computer powered off and preferably unplugged.

A quick test would be to get a standard ATX (or as appropriate) form factor board and offer it up to see if the mounting holes and cut-outs for back panel connectors line up. If they do, you are in business.

It only mens that there's an error on your computer.
Beep codes are use to check or identify which computer part/s causing the problem.

Repeating (endless loop) Memory error Check for improperly seated or missing memory. 1long, 3short No video card or bad video RAM Reseat or replace the video card. High frequency beeeps while running Overheated CPU Check the CPU fan for proper operation. Check the case for proper air flow. Repeating High/Low CPU Either the CPU is not seated properly or the CPU is damaged. May also be due to excess heat. Check the CPU fan or BIOS settings for proper fan speed.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

I have a power supply that is turning itself off immediately after switching it on it is a new motherboard as well Any ideas why ?

I think either the MB or the CPU is with problems.

Try (2 after 1 works, 3 after 2 works...):
1) only PSU+MB+CPU and Fan - works? beeps like crazy?
2) add memory - works? single beep?
3) add/connect video - any image?

All other connectors off (disks, etc) only PSU, fan and case buttons.

If you don't get past 1), go back to the store and have it tested/returned there.

There can be several causes for your problem.
So I will walk you through checking the most likely causes.

If you have the manual for your Motherboard it will be useful for reference purposes, otherwise you can find it at intels website with the following link.

First thing I would check is that ALL of the power connectors are in place and secure. In particular check the 20 pin ATX connector and the two 12V connectors (2 four pin square connectors) right next to the CPU.

I'm not sure if the Aux PCIe connector at the bottom of the board needs to be connected if you have just one Video card. If your Video card has its own power connecter make sure that is attached and secure.

When installing the motherboard there should have been some standoffs you needed to install, more than likely at least nine of them. if any or all of them had a metallic ring around the screw hole then they are important that you have a standoff under it and that it is secured with an electrically conductive screw(Any that came with your case that thread into the standoff should be good).

make sure that that the processor is fully seated and the heatsink (Cooling block if building a water cooled system) is attached properly with a thermal pad/paste.

make sure the fan for the processor is properly attached to the heatsink and its power leads are connected to the CPU fan power connector(On your board the connector is a four pin) the one on the fan may be 3 or 4 pin depending on in it is speed adjustable by the BIOS

there are lockdown latches for your RAM and Video cards, they should come up and fully seat into the notch on the video card and RAM modules.

If you don't have enough RAM modules to fill all 4 slots at once, use the one next to your CPU first then the one the same color as that, then the next one up and its like colored. if you want your RAM. If installing in pairs its important to make sure they have the same specification (Size and timings)

Connect your case fans to their repective pins on the Motherboard.

Connect the power and data cables for your Optical drive(s) and Hard drives.

Make sure the case wiring is attached and properly oriented on their headers

attach the USB & or Firewire(1394) connectors to their respective headers (Be sure not to interchange and attach a 1394 cable to a USB header or vice versa) [That could kill the connectors or fry the Motherboard]

Now I think your ready for a test run.

leave the side panel off and connect everything up and try to boot, If you see a light on the motherboard then thats a good sign that all of the power connectors are properly attached and that the Motherboard is OK.

If you fail to get that light the motherboard may have been damaged when you attempted to power up and the CPU wasn't properly seated

If it attempts to start but shuts down right away, you may have a damaged CPU (Processor) unplug everything, remove the processor(Make sure you discharge any static electricity by placing a hand on the side of you Power supply before touching the CPU) turn it over and look to see if any pins are bent (If so you can straighten them again by using a mechanical pencil. Just pull the lead out and slide the pencil over the pin and adjust to as straight as you can.

Reinstall the processor clean off the old thermal pad/paste from CPU & Heatsink with a Qtip and some rubbing alchohol. Let dry and apply a new thermal pad or paste. If using paste put an amount about the size of a dime over the Core of the CPU if you want to spread it use something other than your finger[oil from skin can affect the pastes conductivity] then reattach Heatsing and fan

and give it another go. If it still does not work, you may have damaged your CPU electrically and it should be replaced(maybe under warranty, since its brand new)

Hope this helps
