Put together a new system today using components below. Push on button, get one long beep and everything shuts off. If I hold the power button in it will try to power up and still beep until it shuts off.
All the fans power up.
The keyboard lights come on.
I am not sure if its a long beep or just a beep until it shuts down. It only last about 3 seconds.
I have done the following:
Change memory, also tried two sticks rather than four.
Changed power supply
Hooked up MOB outside case to be sure ther was not a short
Reset the heatsink after applying new paste
I am not a geek but have built five computers prior to this one and never had a problem getting them up. I am stumped!
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
