First time builder. my build can power up but not boot or display

Hello,

I am a first time pc builder and i wanted to try a budget build whch i chose myself. I assembled all the parts, but every time I try the pc powers on withouth booting or it doesnt deliver signal to the monitor. The lights on the Post status checker on the Motherboad blink on DRAM, then VGA and BOOTING, but after few seconds they all turn off. All the fans on the case, CPU cooler and GPU work.

 

The CPU should not support display graphics so I thought it was the GPU the main problem, since it also an old model even though the vendor claims is not used. For this reason I swapped between PCIE gen 4 and PCIE gen3 slot, withouth different results.

 

I also tried to troubleshoot following these guidelines from Gamer nexus (https://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/2144-basic-pc-build-troubleshooting-steps-wont-boot), but without any luck. I even tried to short the CMOS jumper to reset. I dont have access to another pc to troubleshoot every component individually. I would be thankful for any tip or advise. Down here are the build specs:

 

CPU: Intel Core i5-11400F 2.6 GHz 6-Core Processor  
CPU Cooler: be quiet! Pure Rock Slim 2 CPU Cooler  
Motherboard: ASRock B560 Pro4 ATX LGA1200 Motherboard 
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 CL19 Memory  
Storage: Crucial MX500 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive  
Storage: Seagate IronWolf NAS 1 TB 3.5" 5900RPM Internal Hard Drive  
Video Card: GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB DDR5 (https://www.ebay.it/itm/234083218683)
Case: be quiet! Pure Base 500 ATX Mid Tower Case  
Power Supply: be quiet! Straight Power 11 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply  

Monitor: Acer ‎Nitro KG242YPbmiipx

 

Thanks for the attention.

PS: English is not my first language, so I'm sorry for any mistake.

1. Try to find out if you plugged up HDMI / DP to the correct port on your GPU.

2. Plug your GPU on the Top PCI-E Slot.

3. Try to run the PC without the GPU mounted.

4. Try to Plug RAM once again and push it until you hear the click sound.

 

Simple, but it can help ass in many situations 🙂

I had a similar issue once 🙂. It was because the memory wasn’t inserted correctly. Make sure that you can’t see the gold contacts on the memory once it has been inserted.

I hope this helps 🙂

I saw your cooler is mounted in another direction as it should be mounted i think, it should look like this:

Maybe your CPU is Overheating because of the wrong cooler mount.

Yikes, you have some work to do.  Put gpu in top slot, put the ram in the 2nd and 4th slots from left.  Make sure all connections and good, including fans and psu.  Make sure the cooler is secured properly with a correct thermal paste application.  Try again.

Make sure you plug your monitor in with your GPU and not your motherboard. 

 

I have a similar system and for me it works when I first start my monitor and then the PC, other way around it sometimes doesn't work.

If it was overheating it would still show a signal. It would throttle the CPU/GPU or shut down completely.

Quote or tag me so I get notified 🙂 Also mark my post as answer if it answered your question!

Do you have access to another video card you can use to test?

 

I can be wrong, but I notice in the ebay listing you added that this card has a VGA port, and is label as an GTX 1050Ti, I don't think the 1050 has a VGA port, it may be a fake card, and then it could be very likely that is broken.

Mystery is the source of all true science.

That is a fake 1050 ti, 100%. 

Friends don't let friends use Userbenchmark. Ban the term "bottleneck." Corps aren't your friends. If the PC does what you need it to do well enough, it's good enough. Don't build the "best" system, build the system that makes you happy.

Yes, 250W TDP is not normal for GTX 1050Ti...

Same as VGA in this card

Yep I think that card is a fake - it has a vga port and SLI fingers. The 1050ti does not have either of these.

In gonna try these procedure, but first im posting close images of the GPU.  If you guys confirm that it is fake i am going to find another GPU to verify the ipothesis.

looks good to me, except the cooler isnt mounted the right way… that could be an issue tbh (not enough pressure/contact ) so try to mount it correctly, it might boot then.

 

And yes, the card is immediately strange, not a 1050… but i suppose it would at least boot…

 

So correct cooler orientation.

check if it works.

return the card in either case (unfortunately its trash)

cooler goes this way, you probably need to completely remove it first, dont forget the thermal paste, and good luck. 🙂

I reseated the cpu cooler and placed again the paste, put in order the ram, tried to boot without gpu, still the same results: Post checker lights blink then they turn off but no diplay on monitor. Im going to return the GPU and try to put another one from a friend, I'll post again if I have news,
