Weird forced reboot

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just finished putting together a system with the following specs:

Ryzen 3600

MSI b550 pro wifi

16gb gskill 3200 ripjaws

1tb wd blue ssd

Zotac 1660

Thermaltake smart 700

 

I am able to boot into BIOS just fine and stay there forever, but as soon as I try the windows installer I make it about 10 seconds before it shuts off and my motherboard's CPU debug LED turns on, then that turns off and my VGA LED turns on.

Update:

I was able to get through the Windows install, however I am still experiencing random restarts followed by the CPU debug light.

Well if the debug light for the CPU cuts on, it means the CPU could be having issues. There could be some bent pins, or the CPU itself just might be a dud. But if nothing looks out of the ordinary, just reinstall your CPU, and make sure its firmly in place. Resetting the cmos is a last resort, shouldn't have to touch that.

In the hours I've been at this today, I've tried reseating my CPU, and I still get the two debug lights. My system was working long enough to update some drivers, but has since continued the problem.

You might have to reset the cmos then unfortunately. If that doesn't work, then replace the CPU.

I’ve cleared the CMOS and am still having issues. I’ll have to wait two more weeks to get paid and try a new CPU.

Ok, and before you do it, you should make sure your bios is current just in case. It could be rebooting because of that as well.

Update and end of this thread:

 

It was a bad motherboard. Swapped it out for a motherboard that my brother bought and it works like a charm. Thanks for your help!
