New Computer turns on and off and repeat HELP?(noob)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i am very new to building computers and today i built my very first computer. Everything went well untill i tried to start my computer. After i press the power butten my rgb on my cpu fan turns on, only 1 out of 2 case fans turn on (depending wich one is in wich cpu connector) (probably broken??) my cpu fan tries to turn but it cant, my gpu spins as fast as it can and after a few seconds everything stops and it does the whole thing over and over again. I see nothing on the screen and i cant go to my boot menu an OS(since i couldnt install one). I am very new to pc building and have no idea whats going on. Can somebody help me?

My specs are

Asrock x470 Master Sli

Amd ryzen 7 3700X

Rtx 2080-super

seasonic focus gold 750w

corsair 16gb 3200ghz ddr4

fractal design meshify

i have also tested and 1 out of 2 connecter for my fans is working and the second cpu fan connector doesnt work either. Is my motherboard just faulty?

Also i hear no beeps or see no lights flashing exept the rgb from my fan and motherboard.

Did you update the BIOS on that motherboard with a compatible CPU? Because if you didn't, you just built a brick. Either get a motherboard that supports your CPU out of the box or get someone to lend you an older chip to update the BIOS.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

As @Sauron stated, X470 motherboards will need a Bios update before being compatible with Ryzen 3000. You will need a 2000 series Ryzen processor to update it yourself, if you don't have one or can't get one most computer shops should be able to do it but it will cost money, or you can return that motherboard and get an X570 motherboard or one that for sure has the correct firmware if you want to use an X470 or B450 it's wise to ask the seller if it will have the update or not before you purchase it.


Main Desktop: Cpu - I7-8700k @5ghz | Mobo - Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E | Gpu - Asus ROG STRIX 2080ti OC Ram - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB 3200mhz | Aio - H100i Pro RGB | Psu - Evga 850 GQ | Case - Fractal Design Meshify C White | Storage - Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVME SSD 1x 1TB 1x 512GB / 1x Seagate Ironwolf Pro 4TB HDD |

 

TV Streaming PC: Intel Nuc CPU - i7 8th Gen | RAM - 16GB DDR4 2666mhz | Storage - 256GB WD Black M.2 NVME SSD |

 

Phone: Samsung Galaxy S10+ - Ceramic White 512GB |

 

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

pretty sure AMD will lend you a CPU to flash BIOS for free, given that you provide warranty info

 

search up amd bootkit

You need an older CPU to update the BIOS. AMD used to send out dummy chips (which you need to send back) specifically for this purpose so you can try contacting them. Alternatively you can try getting someone to lend you their CPU if you know someone who has a 2000 series or earlier Ryzen chip. Or you can pay for a tech retailer to do it for you.
