Read your Mobo owners manual. For the first time you turn it on there should either be a button you have to press, or two pins you'll have to short. Your Mobo Manual will tell you which you have to do.
>>
>>699463849
Does your motherboard have any "Debug" LED's?

If so that can help.

Also, try and "reseat" your CPU and RAM.

hdd connected? ram?
have you tried prying the supply with a fork while plugged in to make sure its connected?

This is assuming that nothing happens when you press the power button:

>>699463485
This section here, double check to make sure that the case power switch wires are on the correct header in accordance with the motherboard manual.
>>
Worst comes to worst OP take it apart and re assemble this time documenting the steps so you can accurately tell if you fucked up along the way. Can we get a parts list, that'll help us tell if there is incompatibility. Also make sure the PSU is switched on if yours has a switch.
>>
>>699464424

>>
>>699462758
Have you ensured the power supply switch is set to on?

There should be a switch in the back of the power supply with I and O as an option. O stands for OFF, and I stands for ON.

This switch should be set to I if you want the computer to turn on.
tl;dr: Is the power supply switch set to I?
I've seen people make this mistake before.

Hmmm. Did you try turning it off and back on again?

k so theres alot of replies. Sry i cant reply to all. I uninstalled the gpu and turned it on. The cpu fans turned on, but the fans that came preinstalled with the case didnt. Having trouble on figure out how to get them to turn on.

>>699464424
sry ye i didnt clarify it too well.
nothing coming up on the screen. mobo leds and cpu cooler leds will turn on. along with the cpu cooler fans. They turn on for about 10 seconds then turn off, and will cycle that. hdd is spinning is doing the same cycle of off/on.

nothing on the screen.
>>
>>699464536
You fucking idiot if you screw up the gpu it beeps
>>
>>699464536
Beeps sometimes indicate problems during the startup check of the computers BIOS. different beep combos mean something may not be connected properly or an error with something. I forget the order but it checks your computers parts one by one and makes sure they work together and if one doesnt work it halts the check and indicates to the user that something is wrong through either beeps or a output on screen
>>
>>699462758
Have you tried turning the computer on with the switches on the motherboard itself?
>>
>>699464515
POST means "power on self test". It shows a bunch of information about your PC on startup (so lang as it is not disabled in the BIOS).

I'm not sure what there is to understand about my questions aside from that. I can clarify if you could tell me what exactly you didn't understand.

>>699464536
For the slight off chance of there being a beep. Haven't seen many in the past few years, too. Find it kind of sad, as it was easy debugging, but whatever.
>>
>>699464459
and OP still can't figure out how to start his pc

>>699463897
he doesn't have a watercooled pc...just a liquid cpu cooler, a common thing since like 4 years ago...

Look up "flashing bios" you switch a jumper from pins 1 and 2 to 2 and 3 typically. Also, what size PSU do you have?
>>
OP here. sorry if im not responding fast. Im going to unplug what i have on the mobo right now so you can see it. along with pictures of the manual. ik im an idiot but just asking for help. thanks for anybody thats not a total faggot about it.

Now I know you're trolling
>>
>>699464725
You connected the cables from the case wrong on the motherboard.
>>
>>699464515
Do the drives and fans start when you press the power button, or does absolutely nothing happen?

>>699464464
It looks like the connector on the far left isn't properly connected. You may want to pull all of those connectors, then put them back one by one as indicated by the manual.
>>
>>699464838

I know this, and it's different per manufacturer. But like I said, LED debug codes are much more common place these days over case speakers. My motherboard didn't come with a speaker, and neither did my case.

This, But highly unlikely.
Some times you can get pc parts dead on arrival, or you may have shorted somthing.

do you get any display at all when you turn the pc on?
>>
>>699462758
RTFM of your motherboard, connect the correct wires to the pins, make sure you have connected a hard drive and have installed a ram module. some motherboards require a connected keyboard. whatever. RTFM. do you hear bleeps? are there lights flickering? these hints will help you debug the problem by RTFM

>>699465378
By buying an ASUS or MSI mobo that allow for cold flashing, rather than a G1 pos.

Still. He hasn't plugged in the front panel stuff correctly, but doesn't understand why it isn't working. He hasn't plugged the fans either in to a molex or into the mobo headers, and doesn't know why the case fans don't work. He is providing enough information to be infuriating but not enough to actually solve the problem.

So fuck this thread. Fuck the OP. And here is your (you)
>>
>>699464725
So it's very likely crashing and restarting. That's not a good sign. Does your mobo come with a DVI/HDMI/VGA port so you can bypass the graphics card? If not, unplug the card and see if the cycle persists, if it does, it's either the RAM (most likely), the mobo or the power supply.

Assuming you've made no mistakes with the wiring, but that's unlikely.

Just two things happen more often than they should: People forget to plug in the power supply next to the CPU or (and that's a fatal error) people have set up their screws wrong. With that I mean the small hexagonal screws that have a male thread on one and a femal thread on the other side. If you misalign these with the holes on the motherboard you run the risk of shorting out a connection underneath. Make sure that didn't happen.

I have built hundreds of PCs for my job and occasionally when one does not power up:

(1) Check the wires next to the on/off button. These are usually 8 little pins- look at motherboard manual and make sure these are correct.

(2) Like somebody else said check video card- sounds weird but somehow video cards and other boards can cause a fault where the PC won't boot up.

(3) When I get frustrated I usually start all over and turn PC on after each part is assembled.

(4) Finally- for some strange reason one time I have seen a computer that would not boot up while inside of a case- but assembled on a desk with no case it worked fine- I know this sounds like total bullshit but I swear it is true.

Worst Case Scenario just return the parts and start over- or at least go get another motherboard (which could be the whole problem)

Also call a friend and get them to come help you if you are not that good at following instructions
>>
>>699464725Do you have a fan hub? If yes, make sure it is connected to a cpu fan header on the motherboard

Jesus fuck OP I am so stupid with things like this but even I was able to do it. It is just like fucking lego

OP you obviously haven't downloaded enough ram yet, system32 takes a lot of ram to run but you can bypass it by just deleting it tbh
>>
>>699465081
Does that case have a fan hub in the back or something? I don't see any of your case fans plugged into the motherboard headers, maybe you forgot to plug them in? shit happens.

Also try to unplug all your ram and re-seat it. you should be getting some kind of image regardless though, something if off there. what kind of cpu? i'm assuming it has on board video so if you pluf the display directly into the MB without a gpu installed you should get SOMETHING unless the cpu is not seated right. you can also re-seat your 24 pin and 8 pin power cables.

Maybe, maybe not; just flick the little red switch on the back of your PSU to be sure. That's the voltage converter, sometimes the parts you chose are built for a different region which is why most PSU manufacturers build that option into the device.

On that hub there should be a 3- or 4-pin fan cable that you have to plug into a cpu fan header on the motherboard. Did you do that and if yes, are you shure you plugged it into a cpu fan header and not a system fan header?

This is likely the problem OP. I was in the same situation when i built my second rig, and it was a nightmare. For the longest time I couldn't figure out what the problem was. I sent the motherboard back and they sent me a new one which worked. I never did install the standoffs though. So far so good though. It's been running for over a year without a hitch. It's the worst feeling in the world slapping all your shit together and having nothing happen when u press the power button. Don't forget those standoffs OP. I'm probably running on borrowed time myself.

Anyone else not using standoffs with no problems?
>>
>>699467374
If OP's smart (which I wouldn't count on), he's found somewhere that makes sense to ask these kinds of questions.
>>
>>699466933
I'll explain it, then.
That switch (if it exists, not all PSUs have it) is a user input to tell the power supply what voltage it receives. If you tell it that it receives only 110V AC the circuitry inside will adjust to that and assume it to be correct. That means the circuitry now expects 110V AC but really receives twice the amount and that can severely damage your rig. If, on the other hand, you put it to 220V but it only receives 110V you've quite a decent chance for the MOSFETs in your PSU and on your parts to not saturate, making them run incredibly hot incredibly fast eventualy blowing them. Just don't touch that switch.

>>
>>699467591
why the fuck would you not use standoffs -.-
That is just shortinh out your mobo
>>
>>699467610
TL;DR: Flick the switch very quickly.
>>
>>699467731
>entirely pos
Yeah, that was the idea.
>>
>>699467610
but thats implying OP didn't get 220v rated hardware which he most likely did because as stated he does not have enough voltage provided in the current 110v setting to power his hardware, without turning to 220v his shit will not power on and will just do what its doing, mobo is turning on but there is no voltage for the rest of the hardware. OP will have to try the 220v switch at some point, and no it wont fry his hardware, that is bullshit.

>>699468066
There's no reason to try it. Look at the switch, see what voltage it says, compare it to the mains in your country, done. There is literally no reason to switch it as a means of trouble shooting. And yes, it very much can damage the system. The fuses are only that fast and emergency circuitry is only that reliable.

im not reading through all this, but it looks like your pin-out where it says PW is not connected properly. next to PLED, theres a third pin showing.

and you are completely missing the point that OP clearly has bought 220v hardware, why else would his mobo power on but not actually boot? Clearly there is not enough voltage being supplied by the power supply, the only option is to try 220v.
>>
>>699462758
Disconnect all non-vital peripherals and other hardware.

-hdd/dvd drives
-gpu (use on board)
-all ram not in dimm slots 0/1 (if using dual channel, otherwise everything not in dimm 0)
-fans/usb bus/leds

after ALL non vital hardware is removed, reseat your cpu and ram, make sure you follow proper grounding procedure. if you didn't ground yourself when building the computer, you may have damaged hardware.

make sure that your 8pin cpu power is connected as well as your primary mobo power.

So. Many. Reasons.
It's the entire point of the thread to find this out, but the PSU switching is the least likely and doesn't require any meddling, but merely a visual check goddamn.

sorry guys. was talking to a computer repair guy on the phone. was a family friend and he couldnt think of anything to do over the phone. sorry to keep you waiting. Thanks for all the help through the thread its just hard to follow and answer questions to 6 people at once. would anybody like to help me off the board? that would be awesome. Like i said its just hard to follow what to do/answer with all the people. Giving me too much anxiety.

Your BIOS may not support your CPU. It's possible for a processor to fit, yet still not be compatible. If you can flash your bios, that might fix it if that's the problem.

i didn't use standoffs because my motherboard wouldn't line up with the back panel if I did. Some cases don't require standoffs. I'm not sure if that's the case with my setup. I have a corsair carbide 200r case.

If it's an AMD FX series, you may need a bios update to make your motherboard compatible with the processor.

I hope you didn't cheap out on the motherboard faggot.
>>
>>699462758
try only using one stick of ram
>>
tomshardware.com would be a better place to ask than this

Secondly, check out those tiny wires that run from your case to your mobo, really hard to get those right.


Also did you turn your PSU on? There's a switch on it.

A list of the parts in your build might help

Try a different outlet connector..

If that doesn't work.. Try the paper clip technique.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixcWCrYpw3Y

If that fails, your PSU is DOA.
>>
>>699471035
Well if you provided more details to begin with, people would be able to help you better. What processor did you purchase? Do you have a GPU? Which model? Is the memory unbuffered? What's the latency? Have you tried getting a video signal from the VGA?

Considering all you need is one good card, for one monitor. I think going Tri-SLI is fucking dumb.. Unless you have more than one monitor..

Dude probably just wanted the best shit he could get..

Give him some prop's for at least trying to build one, instead of buying some IBP, CyberPower, or Alienware bullshit.
>>
>>699469520
This OP
>>
>>699472210
But 4k tho.
>>
>>699462758
Op where the fuck is your ram. Is it that section in the upper right that looks more like a heat sink? The slots down in the bottom left look empty, and im not really near your pc right now, but those look like ram slots.
>>
>>699472325
IF you can afford a monitor that runs at actual 4K.

Plus, one thing that gets me about all this shit..

The MOBO Manual tells you EVERYTHING you need to do.

>Everything.

Hopefully OP grounded himself, and didn't short out one of his components lol
>>
>>699469520
Magnets can't hurt computers anymore you fucking asshat. Not since the early 90s. I bet you keep a magnet near your computer just in case you need to erase some bad shit. Jokes on you fuck face. That hasn't worked for decades.
>>
>>699472609

He has some G.Skill ram to the right of the processor, installed correctly.

>>699473388
i'm serious, put a magnet on a spare hard drive and then use it. It's like nothing happened.
>>
>>699473415
Considering I'm one of the 3 people trying to give him good advice.

It's a hit or miss lol
>>
>>699473553
DONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNT

Enjoy your fucking fried hard drive if you do this
>>
>>699473553
^ Truth.

There is a strong magnet INSIDE the hard drive, right near the disk too. If that doesn't fuck it up then nothing will, assuming you only touch the magnet on the outside.
>>
>>699473035
Okay, so its not a heat sink. That was the only thing confusing me. I couldnt tell if it was ram or heatsink, and if it was heat sink, the next best spot wouldve been the pci slot looking things, which they are indeed pci slots. thank you fag.
>>
>>699462758
K I'm getting the fuck out of here.
Here is my final hook-up for troubleshooting this shit.

Unplug all the wires.
DO THE FUCKING PAPER CLIP TRICK ON YOUR 24-PIN in said video.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixcWCrYpw3Y

If that fails.. Get a different outlet connector for the back of the PSU..

If that fails, YOUR PSU IS DEAD.

If your PC turns on you're golden, but it doesn't turn on when the 24-PIN is connected.

Remove all the wire's from their connected spot, and read through your motherboard manual. Place them accordingly, and make sure any wires that are left over; there aren't any slots for them on the MOBO.

Also, make sure your ram is seated properly in the slots. Take them out, and place them back in.

Good day OP. Good luck.
>>
>>699473553
Of course not. The writing head is so close to the ceramic disc that the magnetic field at the point of the disk is magnitudes stronger than what's left after half an inch of air and metal from a strong magnet on the outside.
>>
>>699474229
(TYPICALLY) RAM slots are in a vertical position.. Unless you installed your MOBO side-way to fit your case.
>>
Is your RAM seated correctly?
>>
>>699462758
I had the exact same problem where the MoBo LEDs turn on but the PC wont start. The cause of the problem was the 24-pin PSU cable being around 95% plugged in instead of the needed 100%.
>>
>>699475012

Did MOBO have built in video? (Or anything else you have chosen to go card based rather then MOBO native?) And did you disable it? (Usually with a jumper setting though BIOS settings work too.)

Anyway from the power cycle you describe?

I would check the power switch to MOBO connection. You either have it shorted with something else or backwards.
>>
>>699475183
Opening up a computer is the hardware equivalent of surgery in my mind. I can never be too careful. Especially when one component can be worth well over $100.
>>
>>699464252
ngl....i did the same thing on the build i did last month.. had power outside the case, but none once installed. put the mobo standoffs in and viola. lucky i didnt short anything out
>>
>>699462758
Make sure the speaker that came with the mobo is plugged in. without it you won't be able to get BIOS error beeps. If all else fails breadboard the system and try to figure out what isn't working. My first build had a DOA mobo so one of your parts might be broken.
>>
get a console its 2016 fags
>>
hey OP, I'm wondering if you may just be dealing with an issue with your display.. What connection are you using? HDMI, Display Port, or DVI? Are you plugging it into your GPU, or mobo?
>>
>>699470233
>only thing that can go in a PCI-E slot is a graphics card
