Swap the RAM to a different slot. Same thing happened to me

Specs would help

 

Sounds like a faulty PSU or overheating CPU

No, I think it is likely the RAM. Since my RAM had not arrived yet, I turned my system on before I had the RAM in and this is exactly what happened

That's also a possibility

check the manual for where to put RAM, next did you plug the front panel in correctly. Did you plug the power from the PSU to the mobo in the right place

You need to make sure your motherboard has at least the F8 BIOS update before it will POST with your 4690. It's a Haswell Refresh (ie Devils Canyon) therefore a Z87 board will not support it out of the box unless it's been updated.

 

Sometimes you get lucky and the board was built and shipped with the updated BIOS. Sometimes you don't.

How do i go about doing this since i cant start it

How do i go about doing this since i cant start it

Heh well. Let me take a look at your board specs. I'll edit this post in a minute.

 

Alright.

 

From your manual: Chapter 5-1-1 (Pages 77-78)

1. Download latest BIOS

2. Extract to USB Flash Drive, formatted in FAT32

3. Boot. Immediately press <End> key during POST to access Q-Flash.

 

According to your manual Q-Flash is designed to be used without "accessing MS-DOS or the OS" so it's possible it will work without needing the CPU since it's an embedded utility. Notice I said possible because I'm not sure if this is similar to Asus' blind-flashing utility.

 

Give it a shot. If it works, awesome, if not then you'll need to either get a regular Haswell CPU (a cheap pentium or something will work, just not the G3258) or take the board to the store you bought it from (or any PC store with a tech depot really) and see if they will flash it for you.

I am going to give this a go but how would it work when the rig just turns of instantly?

Hence why I said it may not work as I'm not overly familiar with Q-Flash. Best you can do is give it a shot.

That's what I was afraid of.

You're going to need to do one of two things then. Either take it to a shop and see if they will flash it for you. Or you're gonna need to buy/borrow a pre-refresh Haswell cpu. If you have to buy one you can get a cheap G series pentium to do it. Just make sure you check Intel's ARK site first to make sure it's a pre refresh chip.

.... Yeah? The issue is your motherboard BIOS does not recognize your Haswell Refresh CPU. And it won't recognize it until you get it flashed with the updated F8 or F9 BIOS.

You can plug and unplug as many things as you want to try, but its not going to help.

I checked cpu compatibility and its 4th gen intel and the i5 4690 is 4th gen so that shouldnt be the problem and even without the cpu the fans stop spinning are they supposed to do that without a cpu

Look at the compatibility list. Notice the BIOS revision requirement?

I don't know how much clearer I can say it.
