Have you updated the motherboards bios yet?? Sometimes the shipped bios can be buggy and its a good idea to do a bios update from the motherboard manufacturers website.

What kind of Powersupply do you have?

450 watt come with my Raidmax gaming case.





The thing is that the cheap raidmax cases have low voltage 12volt rails on the included power supplies. Im hoping this isnt your problem.

Just because a powersupply says its 450watts doesnt mean its actually 450 watts. Only the expensive or quality brands called true power powersupplies actually put out what they say or close to it. The raidmax dont put out what they list hopefully its not the problem but if the bios doesnt fix the problem it definately sounds like a powersupply issue.


Can you try getting into the bios by pressing Delete right after you power on the system.

Then go into pc health status and look at the voltage levels and post back all of the voltages.

It doesnt matter what is posted on the side of the powersupply as I said before.. I need to know the voltages through the bios atleast to see if you got ahold of a bad powersupply.

I don't think SLI had anything to do with screwing up your PC. I think jrm20 is right about it being a PSU issue. Go ahead and remove all video cards from your system, and see what kind of errors the board throws at you.
If it gives you a no video cards error, then put one card in, see if it will POST. If not, try the other card. Try another power supply, if you can get your hands on one.

"The Ninja 918 Gaming Case from Raidmax is a gamer elitist’s dream. It’s sleek ninja styling creates the perfect balance of dangerous good looks and ..."
Never trust a manufacturer who uses the words "sleek ninja styling" to describe a computer case.
