CPU unable to "kickstart", need help here!

#1DeathHopePosted 3/8/2014 5:04:33 PM
Hello folks, had this issue with my cpu.

Now everytime i try to start my cpu, it will try to startup with the fans starting to spin up and everything then a few secs later, they would stop spinning; like the cpu cant get a "proper" kickstart.

Im going to guess its the psu thats' wonky. But still, any ideas fellas?

When asking for help always provide as much info about your PC as you can.

Try removing the GPU if you have one. Often that sort of behaviour is a type of short circuit protection. Double check all your cables. Try a barebones setup with as few cables plugged in as possible. So, CPU, 1 Stick of RAM, MOBO 24 and 4 pin power connectors, front panel power switch... That's it.

Was going to suggest this, I was just waiting for him to answer with specs so I could see if he had a dedicated GPU.

But yeh, do what this guy said.

Well obviously you need stretch goals before you kickstart anything.

Hey guys, sorry for the delay. I was testing out my PSU and gfx card. Turns out both of them are fine.

My specs:
Gigabyte ga-p67-ds3-b3
nvidia geforce gtx 770 4gb
2x 4gb ram
Corsair cx 750m (750 watts)
LG dvd writer/reader
WD 500gb internal drive
intel i5 2500

EDIT: Ok so i've connected as told [I've even changed the PSU] and i'm getting the same reaction; cpu tries to start but it can't. The fans spins for 2s then stops; spins again for 2s and stops.

Okay try resetting the bios... Either remove the watch battery from the mobo for a good 20 seconds or so (doesn't need to be that long but do it anyways), or look for the reset bios switch. Read your motherboard manual to check to see where it is on the motherboard itself. Usually its 3 pins with a jumper that connects 2. You just move the jumper over to the other 2 for several seconds then replace it back on its original 2 pins. Other mobos just have an actual switch that does this. Again, refer to your motherboards documentation.

If that doesn't work and you've tried any alternative wires you may have, it could be a motherboard, or psu failure. I realize you changed your PSU and it is unlikely that is the cause but there is still a chance. Chances are something happened to your motherboard though if the bios reset doesn't work.

Gfaqs isn't letting me edit right now for whatever reason so

edit: Also check to see if you have any overclocking features turned on if your mobo has any.

This was happening to me before. In my case, it was the PSU.

Your motherboard could be dead. I had the same issue with a Sabertooth (the motherboards that are suppose to last 5 years!) for where it refused to post. Had to send the thing back.
