this hasn't been mentioned yet but check the thermal paste on the heatsink if you put to much and its overflowing on to the contacts of the processor it will short it and cause this exact issue. if it is the case carefuly clean with isopro alcohol and reapply carefully with a smaller amount

Have you tried a different output? I've asked you twice already...


Sorry...

By output do you mean the power adapter or HDMI output? I've tried different ones for both

Did you try that?^

If that doesn't work, try going to a local PC store like Newegg they can help... they can update it for you for a cheap price. I live in a 3rd world country and it just cost me 5$.


Newegg has local stores?

If not are there any local stores I can just take my build to? Whether it's to update BIOS on my mobo, troubleshoot hardware, etc.... anyone know if there are still some PC repair shops in USA?

Apparently Best Buy's Geek Squad is not geek enough to do it.

Where can I get isopro alcohol? Can I just rubbing alcohol to remove the thermal paste? it wont damage my cpu when i remove the heatsink even tho i applied paste right?

Oh I tried a DVI to HDMI cable where the DVI end connects to the PC and HDMI on monitor. I couldn't find my VGA and DVI cables unfortunately.. I guess it's still worth trying with just VGA?

Try VGA because HDMI is picky when it comes to resolutions.

it was short for isopropyl alcohol and can usually be found in same area as rubbing alcohol at the store , and if you do it carefully you shouldn't have an issue removing the heat sink. I had this issue before when I was in a rush to get a build done for my friends b-day, ended up having to take it back and clean it up to get it working if the thermal paste did over flow check the socket as well for paste and the base housing make sure it gets cleaned up. with the symptoms you stated it could be things aren't seated correctly as well make sure everything is in and pushed down all the way , probably not a graphic card doa issue because if that was the case then the out put on the mobo would have still produced a picture it is a short somewhere either with inproper stand offs , inproper seating of add on cards or ram, the thermal paste issue or inproper wiring or a combination there of. good luck hope this helps
