Question about Intel Motherboard
I purchased a PC Kit from Tiger Direct that included an ASUS P5N-E SLI motherboard and Intel Quad Core Processor and NVidia 8800 GTS Video Card 2 Gigs of ram a Ultra 550 watt power supply and Ultra case. I put it all together pushed the power button and the system would start up for about a half second and shut down.
I have tried the following solutions:
1 - Called ASUS, they said the motherboard need a new bios for the quad core processor. They sent me a new one. Put everything back together, still had the same problem.
2 - Thought it might be the power supply. Got a new 650 Watt supply. Still had the same problem.
3 - Called ASUS back, they had me pull the processor and power up the system. The fans ran for about 10 seconds the ASUS Tech had me pull the power and said the processor was bad. I called Tiger Direct and they replaced the processor. Got the new processor, put it in the sstem and still have the same problem.
The ASUS Board calls for 6 retaining screws but the Ultra case only had 4 retaining studs in the motherboard housing. Could it be a ground issue?
I simply don't know what to do next????
Try taking out the mobo and ps out of its casing, lay it on a table, hook things together and power it up. I had some problems before caused by mounting studs or try insulating all stubs from the mobo. hope this will help.
