New pc NOT POSTing, I think CPU but not sure[SOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so today i built my first gaming computer containing

 

asus z170 pro

intel core 17 7700k

gtx 1070 founders

be quiet dark rock pro 3

corsair vengeance lpx 16gb

wd 1tb hdd (plan to add ssd later)

evga 750w gold pus

 

the power gets to everything but it doesnt post and nothing at all is showing on my monitor. the ram light flashes red then turns off when i power it on, all the fans turn on including in the gpu and the geforce gtx logo on it. ive tried using the hdmi port on the card then unplugging the gpu and just using the integrated graphics but still nothing and as far as i can tell the ram is seated fine.

i think the mb might be bad but im not sure.

 

any tips??

 

(New addition after some testing)

 

OK.  SO

 

after some thinking, I believe the problem is the cpu. Because power gets to everything fine (meaning all fans and indicator leds light up), and when I tried to reset the bios and clear cmos nothing changed (other than when powering up it did turn off then back on. Even removed battery, put it back in and did it again)..

I Think the mb is fine. But when I tried to plug the monitor into the gpu and then the mb to use igpu nothing happened. So I think the problem is the cpu. I made sure the power is plugged in. (I did check the ram btw) I reseated it, reattached the air cooler and tried again with the gpu and integrated but still nothing. 

 

So before I see about replacing it.. any thoughts?

 

(New findings) 

 

The highest supported processor for my motherboard is 6th gen without a bios upgrade SO I need to get a compatible processor so i could then upgrade it and use my 7th gen 7700k

I am guessing you have your monitor hooked to the graphics card. Try booting with the monitor connected to the board. If the computer posts, there could be a problem with the card or the pcie slot. if you get post, try the card in a different pcie slot. If you have a card you know works, you can try it in the slot the 1070 is in. if the computer still doesn't post, or still only posts on the board outputs, try resetting the bios.

Is the CPU 4/8 pin cable plugged in? Stupid question, but I have to ask, since tons of people (me included) have done this before.

Still nothing when I connected it to the board or changed slots. Since it's my first build I don't have any spare parts to check with unfortunately

I can do that without seeing anything on the screen?

Yes but it didn't work. I looked it up in the manual and removed the battery then plugged it back in then reset but still nothing
