So A few weeks ago I had a failed motherboard, so I ordered another one after about a week of debugging and it has arrived today. The old motherboard is a Gigabyte Z87X-D3H and the new one is a Gigabyte B85M-D2V.
So I put it all back together and found that when I power the system on, the fans from the power supply and graphics card spin, but then stop after a moment. Nothing happens on screen or anything.
everything is connected right, cpu fan header is connected, and I tested the PSU with the paperclip method and it worked. I should also mention that the Power supply fan only spun as long as it does when connected to the rest of the system during Paper Clip test
I am really stuck on what is happening and I would really like to find out what is happening.
Unfortunately I have no PSU to test it. Is CMOS the bios clear thing? That's what the manual said and it did nothing. And apparently the cpu is compatible with the board. If you need any details the specs aware:
No I have not checked the pins but I am not sure that it would be a problem, it is a fresh new board, the pins where fine before I put the CPU in, and I put that in gently. It does say 3.0 is compatible with the cpu. It seems to me that this is simply a faulty PSU.
I would say so to. Maybe you have a local pc store who would be willing to test it for you? Bring the system in and they will probably put a test PSU in to see. I know we would do that type of think when I used to work at one.
