I have just installed a new computer with :

Motherboard MSI 970 gaming

CPU : FX 6300

Graphics:AMD radeon HD7750

 

with a simple SSD in sata but I didn't plug it so ...

 

The problem is that I've plugged everything 8-pin and 24-pin, cpu fan + system fan +CPU, ventirad + front panel pins.

 

When I press the power button, everything runs for half a sec and then stop. I have already unplugged everyhting, clear the CMOS (The motherboard is a second-hand).

But I am experiencing the same issue.

:welcome:   Axfalt,

 

Some questions if I may;

 

Was the second hand MB guaranteed to be working.

 

What are the brand and model name or number of the PSU.

 

Have you connected any 6 pin power dongle from the PSU to the HD7750 video card.

 

You don`t mention any Ram, what do you have, brand, spec and amount.

 

Are you testing this inside or outside of the case, outside would be best to reduce the risk of a system short.

 

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

Hi,

 

Was the second hand MB guaranteed to be working.

 

Yep it is almost guaranteed to work since it is under warranty.

 

 

Was the second hand MB guaranteed to be working.

 

It is a Corsair VS450

 

 

Have you connected any 6 pin power dongle from the PSU to the HD7750 video card.

 

There is no port for it and I am almost sure of it.

 

 

You don`t mention any Ram, what do you have, brand, spec and amount.

 

G.Skill NT Series 8 Go DDR3 1600 MHz CL11

 

 

Are you testing this inside or outside of the case, outside would be best to reduce the risk of a system short.

 

I am inside of the case :/

 

 

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

 

Wired USB keyboard, A simple as [bleep] working model ^^

Great news Axfalt  :thumbsup:

 

No inconvenience to anyone, we volunteer here to help in situations such as this.

 

As for the cause, you are correct you may never find out, loose connection or Ram/video card not seated correctly, I suspect you wont mind as long as it never happens again though  ;)

 

You are welcome btw and thanks for the follow up   :)
