Sorry but not sure what you mean by the above!

 

Please provide information about your computer, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if a brand name, provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the MB, the RAM (including the amount) add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) - the old one and the replacement) providing these details will enable us to better assist you.

Its an older build my brother did for me. its is custom with an Asus P8z77-v LK MB c8mobx185318 serial number, and g.skill ripjawsX 4*2, old psu was the MODxstream-pro 700W, new psu EVGA 750 BQ, a geforce gtx 770 today i decided i would try and manually power up the MB, i only plugged the PSU into the two power slots for the MB and it started perfectly fine, when i plugged everything else in and went to start to cpu fan spins for a split second then stops

No need to quote every reply deadlynutcream69, you will understand why when you see the checklist below  :thumbsup:

 

 

With the computer and screen powered down and disconnected from the wall socket;

 

Disconnect the screen to the GTX 770.

 

Press the chassis power on button for a while to get rid of any residual charge in the MB.

 

Ground yourself by touching a bare metal part of the case.

 

Remove the CMOS battery from the MB.

 

Remove the GTX 770 from the MB.

 

Remove both sticks of RAM.

 

Disconnect any HDDs and optical drives from the PSU and MB, secure the cables neatly out of the way,

 

Check that the 24 pin power connection is secure, the same for the 8 pin CPU power connection and the 4 pin CPU cooling fan connection.

 

Connect the screen to the appropriate DVI or HDMI video port on the MB,

 

Insert a single stick of RAM in slot A2 which is the second one away from the CPU.

 

Reinsert the CMOS battery.

 

Connect the computer and screen to the power outlet/s, power up, post back with an update for us.

Positive news but not home and dry just yet.

 

its asking to setup recovery BIOS setting

 

Normal behaviour, what we need to do now is long winded but more accurate  :thumbsup:

 

 

With the computer and screen powered down and disconnected from the wall socket (not the screen to the MB though, keep it connected).
 
Press the chassis power on button for a while to get rid of any residual charge in the MB.
 
Ground yourself by touching a bare metal part of the case.
 
Reconnect your HDD to the MB and PSU.
 
Swap the first stick of RAM out to test just the second stick in the same slot.

 

Connect the computer and screen to the power outlet/s, power up while tapping the Delete key that gets you into the BIOS, reset the time and date, save and exit the BIOS, if all good, boot into Windows then post back with an update for us.

So with the second stick of RAM now tested and the connections secure you have booted into Windows.

 

 

Tip

If using a computer and not a mobile phone, please avoid adding multiple posts while waiting for us to reply to your last, edit your last post to include anything that you wish to add, this will ensure nothing gets overlooked which can sometimes happen if a thread has more than one page.
