ASUS 970 Pro Gaming/Aura turns on for a sec then off

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok, so I'm so-so at computers. I know how to put them together and general trouble shooting. However, my daughter's computer is doing this thing when it turns on for a sec, then turns off. It has a Q LED status light thing on the side. The DRAM one will blink on right before the whole thing shuts off. I've reseated the CPU, GPU, and RAM. I've switched the RAM in and out to see if one was faulty (unless they're both faulty, then I'm SOL). I've been beating my head against a wall for the past few hours and don't know what else to do. It was working fine right up until she shut it down for 15 minutes or so and turned it back on. (I also turned it off and on again, no luck. lol )

Please help me.

Try with one stick of RAM at a time, in different DIMM slots.

If it eventually boots up properly then you'll know either:

  1. One or multiple stick(s) of RAM has failed
  2. One or multiple slot(s) on the motherboard is now faulty

If it is #1, you can request an RMA with Corsair...because RAM carries a lifetime warranty.

If it is #2, then you need to find out if it is a CPU or the motherboard -- since the Integrated Memory Controller (IMC) is internal to the CPU itself.

 

Not sure if the questionable RaidMax power supply may be the cause...

 

Let us know how it goes.

I just did that, actually. It does that no matter what configuration I have with the RAM. Ugh...I hope it's not the CPU/MOBO. I can't really afford to replace that. Oof.

Damn.

In MOST cases, it is the motherboard that will go out, before the CPU...but there is always that 1% ~ 5% that it could be the CPU.

That was actually the case with my i7-6800K.

 

Anyway you are somehow able to test the motherboard and/or CPU?

I know it is a bit of a pain in the a$$, especially with this pandemic crisis going on...

No. My computer is an Intel 8700K and my studio computer uses an AM4 board so I can't test the FX 8750 in it. I know they're famous for being not so good processors. I may have to just try to scrap some funds together to get her the parts to replace her rig. The GPU and HDD's still work fine. So, yeah. I was just hoping I wouldn't have to do that. Thanks for the help, though! :D
