i9 Build - Help required

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone..

 

I’ve just put together my new PC and have powered on for the first time. The power all comes on, all fans etc are running and no warning LED’s.

 

i would expect to see an MSI boot screen but I’m currently just getting a black screen

 

My spec is..

 

i9 9900K 

MSI Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon AC

32GB Corsair Vengeance 3200 RGB

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Super

1TB Sabrent Rocket NVMe

750w Corsair PSU

Corsair H60 CPU Cooler

 

This is the first build I’ve done.. ever. I look to have everything connected, not sure where to go now. There’s 1 socket on my motherboard ‘CPU_PWR2’ which is currently not connected, could this be the issue?

 

Thanks!

Dan

Assuming the "CPU_PWR2" is the secondary 4-pin EPS connector on the board, no, you don't need that.

Have you checked the Debug LEDs on your board? Is the video cable plugged into the graphics card? Is the monitor turned on and have you selected the correct input in its settings (HDMI, Displayport, etc)?

Thanks for the fast response guys.

 

I’ve tried both HDMI’s, 1 on the motherboard and 1 from the GPU. None of the debug LED’s are currently lit up. Yeah the monitor is on and I’ve selected the correct input. 
 

🤦🏻‍♂️

I'd try checking whether the CPU is seated properly (maybe actually reseat it while you're at it), and recheck all the power connectors to make sure they're all plugged in all the way.

I’ve just taken the GPU out and I’ve managed to get to the boot menu, thanks a lot!

 

My main concern is if I plug it back in once Windows is installed, will I have the same issue?

 

Really appreciate the help everyone.

Probably the GPU is faulty....

Are the GPU power connectors plugged it correctly ?

If yes then u should RMA the card....

Good to hear it's not something more major.

Try reseating the graphics card, checking the power connections on both ends for it, and seeing if that does the trick. I've had a similar problem where I wouldn't get any display output to the monitor, but reseating the graphics card actually fixed it. If that doesn't work, try a different slot on the motherboard.

Thanks for the response, that’s exactly what I did.. took the card out and got a much more reassuring click as I put it back in.

 

Thanks everyone 👍🏻
