So i just finished making my new PC, my first time doing this.

When i turn on the PC, it beeps once when it turn on, and after 2 seconds it beeps again, then turns off.

I tested the system outside the case, as suggested by someone, and it worked perfectly.

So i installed everything again, and again same problem, beeps once then again the turns off.

So once again i tested the system outside of the case, and this time it did the same thing that it did inside the case, beeps once beeps again, then shuts off.

I am desperate for some help. How do i figure out the real problem is?

By the way, after it started to shut off even outside the case, i removed the RAM to see what happen, and it just starts to beep like crazy but it stays on.

When i install the RAM back, it does the same thing, beeps once then again then shuts off.

I really need help.

Here specs if necessary:

 

Motherboard-Asus B85M-G

Processor- i5 4670k

RAM- Corsair Vengeance 8gb(8x1) DDR3

Power supply- Corsair CS550M

Hard drive- Western Digital 1TB

Graphics Card- EVGA Geforce GTX 750ti

 

Anything else you would like to know, just ask and i will answer the best i can.

Thank everyone in advance,.

:welcome:   XavCurls

 

Try removing the GTX 750Ti and using the MBs integrated video port and let us know what happens.

 

Can you also tell us the exact spec of the Ram, provide a link if you can.

 

Is the CPU cooler firmly and correctly mounted.

 

Are you using a USB or PS/2 wired type keyboard.

So i disconnected the power cable that goes from the psu to the graphics card thinking that would completely stop the graphics card and only use the integrated graphics.

When i turned on the pc, every turned on even the graphics card without the psu power cable, and the best part was that the PC didnt shut down.

What i dont understand is, how did that cause the PC to shut down.

SO thanks a lot in a way you helped hahahaha

But how does that happen though

Are you saying that the MB is now booting.

 

ATM we cannot speculate until we know what has occurred and the system is running correctly.

K, please shut it down, disconnect all power cables, remove the 750Ti, connect the MBs video port to your display, reconnect the power cables and then start up, let us know if you get a BIOS screen and do not do anything else until we get back to you please.

It shows a screen with my processor info and RAM info.

Then is says, " Devices total: 0  Drive. 0 Keyboard, 0 Mouse, 2 Hubs

SATA3G_2: WDC  WD10EZEX-00BN5AO

 

Please enter setup to recover BIOS setting

Some progress at least  :thumbsup:

 

With the computer shutdown please do the following, disconnect all power cords from the wall socket/s, ground yourself by touching a bare metal part of the case, if the memory stick is in Dimm slot A1 remove it, gently blow out the slot and then reseat the Ram securely back in the slot (do not overly apply physical pressure or you may damage the MB) if the Ram is in any other slot, remove it and put it in slot A1 as above, check that all internal connections are securely attached, reconnect the power cables, screen to integrated video port and keyboard, have your Windows installation disk ready, post back when you are ready to proceed, I am around all day so get back to us when you have the time to spare a couple of hours.
