Problem starting up computer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have some problems starting my computer. When I press power button, I can hear HDD starting to spin. No fans or their LEDs turn on. Not even CPU fan. Gpu fan is on. No video comes out from the GPU, which means I can't go to bios and check things. The computer was working fine yesterday. Specs of my machine are as follows:

  • 6700K
  • Asus Z170-A
  • 16Gb kingston ram
  • amd radeon HD7770
  • Corsair CX430 psu from year 2013

My thoughts go first to blame the PSU, but also mtherboard could be at fault here. What do you think?

I had a similar problem but I had LEDs on, fans spinning but no video comes out of GPU.

 

The fix for my issue was that the motherboard had bent cpu socket pins (3) but successfully bent them back and displayed video on screen.

 

This may not be a fix for you, but in my case, this was my fix.

Check your CPU, Thermal paste might have reached the pins.
Or maybe your 430W PSU isnt enough.

Id also recommend checking the cables, try replacing them.

He is fine with 400watt PSU.  I would reseat CPU and check and make sure of the cable connections and what not.

Got it to work again by reseating GPU. I'm about to get a new PSU and cables because just bought an used R9 280x. I have decided on seasonic focus GX-650. I know that good 550W PSU could power that gpu, but PSU is a long time investment and I want something more future-proof
