PC Startup problem

Hi guys,

 

I wasn't quite sure where to put this on the forum.

 

My pc isn't able to boot since yesterday. 

When I push the start button, the fans turn on for a second, then turn off, then on again and so on and so on. 

I've tried a few things.

 

  1. Jump start the PSU with just a fan on it, It starts normal. Then tried with a few hard disks on it so it has a heavier load, it also starts normal.
  2. Then reconnected everything but with no GPU and no Ram, but here On and off and On and Off again. 
  3. Reseting the bios, also no result. (even putted a new bios battery, same result).

I'm starting to think it might be a defected motherboard?

What do you guys think? What else can I try? 

 

My PC Specs: 

 

  • Core i7 4770k
  • Asrock Z87 Extreme4 motherboard
  • 16GB Memory (2x8GB)
  • GTX 980Ti
  • OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W

 

Thanks in advance guys!

If you overclocked something you might've put a wrong value and for security reasons the motherboard turns itself off, thats what came to mind tbh

Try clearing the Bios on the mobo, try a different psu if you can, I know you tested it with fans and hdd's but those are still a very small amount of power by themselves. Also try with 1 ram dimm at a time and see if it boots. Process of elimination here is important, don't throw money at parts that you're unsure will even fix it.

Bios flash? I know some new mobo's have two bios chips for some reason. And some of the newest 390s. I can't see bios chips on the rundown anywhere.

So can you boot to bios or does it shutdown before you get there?

No it doesn't even post (or give an error code on the motherboard).

 

I've tried my psu on my dads pc and it works just fine. 

 

So it must be my motherboard or cpu. 

Guess I'll have to upgrade then! #sorrynotsorry

So I bought a Ryzen 5 2600x , Aorus x470 ultra gaming and Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX 2x8GB 3000Mhz. 

I was wondering if I install this on my old ssd's without Reinstalling windows if it will boot just like that? Don't want to reinstall Windows...
