PC no post

Hey guys. So this weird thing is happening. I press the start button of the pc, and the monitor shows a “no signal” sign and then no display. After about 7-8 tries, pc booted normally. I shut it down after I was down, now its giving the same problem. (This is the first time in experiencing this kind of problem) Any ideas what the culprit may be?

 

specs:

core 2 quad q9650 @3ghz

gtx 1050 ti 4gb msi

240w psu hp factory

12 gb ram ddr3 (2x2 and 2x4)

1TB toshiba 7200rpm sata 3

I dont really know how to do the psu troubleshooting part, cuz even if its not dead (wich i suspect it is), i may end up killing it myself xd

I had something similar to this, and turned out to be an issue with my socket and ram, however it depends on what you have and what you can try to change.

Can you give some system specs and what you have tried to resolve the issue?

Check the gpu and reseat it if you have one.

check all the psu cables and try reseating them.

try changing ram around in different slots.

can you get anything from trying to open into the uefi?

 

 

 

 

CPU: i5-4690k @ 4.4 GHz | RAM: 12GB DDR3 1333MHz | GPU: Sapphire Pulse RX 580 4GB

Update: i tried with and without gpu. Without gpu it boots normally. Im hoping that the pcie slot died and no my gpu.. real tragic that would be

So i tested the gpu, its fine, so the pcie slot is dead. Now im buying another pc, and i thought of using this as a media pc and connect it to my tv. Now that i reseated the ram sticks, i power the pc, where there should be a green light (near the start button) is now red, it gives 5 short beeps, and if i press the start button again (to like try and shut it down), the cpu fan goes on Turbo modee, i had never seen that fan pull that much air.. any help?

 

 

Edit: it was a ram problem, wasnt properly seated, its cool now. Thanks yall
