PC shuts down 1 sec after is turned on

Hi guys, I know this is a lame problem, but it's a bit weird in my case. So, I had to move and I disassembled the PC (it was a working PC and I packed everything in original boxes), ordered a new case for the new place (couldn't take the old one with me) and put it back together. My specs are:

Mobo - Asrock H61M-DGS

CPU - Intel I3 or I5 I can't remember right now

GPU - Asrock Radeon RX550 (6 months old)

PSU - Aerocool VX PLUS 500 (6 months old)

RAM - Fury Hyper X 8GB (6 months old)

SSD -Team group 60GB

HDD - Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 160GB and 1TB (1TB 6 months old)

Case - Master Cooler MB311L ARGB

 

It's an old system, but I use it for work and it gets the job done. Here is the problem:

the system boots up with mobo, RAM, CPU, SSD and HDD 160GB, but no matter what I connect next, it's gets in a boot loop. Lights up, shuts down, 5 seconds nothing and same thing again over and over.

I checked all connectors, cleared the CMOS, checked for dust and particles, switched RAM slots but I can't get it going. Any advice would be helpful!

Did you connect front panel connectors properly and made sure you've installed mobo standoffs?

The standoffs were already mounted in the case and I tried several combinations with the front panel connectors just in case, but still nothing.

I've read I should replace the CMOS battery, but I don't have where to by one now.

that's usually not a problem

 

try booting with the CPU(with cooler), motherboard, RAM only, 24-pin and CPU 4/8-pin connected, the rest disconnected (other than PWR button, that's fine)

you could re-seat the CPU and RAM (again) if that doesnt work.

Things I need help with:

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Yes, it posts! It says:

 

BIOS Date: 07/11/2012 11:02:09

H61M DGS UEFI P1.40

CPU: Intel Core i3-3210

Total memory: 7934MB

CMOS Date/Time Not Set

Press F2 or DEL to Run Setup

Press F1 to Continue

 

if I have to be honest, I don't know what to press:D

You can press G2 or del to enter setup and key in the right date and time

Or F1 to continue and see what it says, probably "please insert boot drive" if you followed my method

It's your method, yes, but here is the funny part...my keyboard is Bluetooth and therefore, not working....

ok, lets assume I have a keyboard. After I press F1 and I have connected my boot drive, what's next? Won't it gust crash again after I connect everything else?

if it does, you have a faulty part, so you can connect them 1 by 1 and check to see when it stops booting once you added the part

I got a keyboard and here is the situation:

with CPU, mobo, Ram and SSD - posting and I could actually use my PC

with CPU, mobo, RAM, SSD and the 160GB HHD -  system starts REALY slow if at all and the HDD doesn't spin, just makes vibrations every 2 seconds and it is not recognized

with CPU, mobo, RAM, SSD and 1TB HDD - it does not start at all, turns on for a sec and then turns off

with CPU, mobo, RAM, SSD and GPU - it does not start, turns on for a sec and then turns off

 

Everything was packed very good, so I doubt that  the GPU and HDDs are broken, I think it might be the motherboard, any thoughts?

hm, I haven't thought of that...

I know the GPU needs more power, but I didn't know the power consumptions of 160GB and 1TB are that different. 

Ok then, could you recommend a PSU?

mmm I would say CX550(M)

but you should get more insight from others (you can make a new thread in PSU subforum)

im not too familiar with PSUs

 

but do take note it's just speculation that it's PSU's fault

your unit is a tier D (low tier) PSU, so it's no harm getting a better one anyways, even if it's not the faulty part (but probably is)

Yes, it won't hurt to buy a new one. Thanks for all the help :)
