HELP Comp Won't Post
Just added in new sets of Ram (G SKILL 2X2 4GB DDR 1066) , NEW PSU OCZ Z Series 550W, and a new Video card XFX 5770 1GB

Current computer spec prior to the upgrade was

RAM: 2X1 2GB MUSHKIN performance series 1.8V
VCard: XFX7600GS 256MB

Right now the mobo won't put up
fan will only spin up for less then a second than nothing happens...
i've already tried resseting the cmos , pulling the battery...

I also tried to stick 1 GB of the old ram in still won't boot,
i tried booting it without the drives plugged in and still won't boot
can anyone find an answer

What is the beep code you are receiving?

Take care...........

Put the old video card back in first of all.... if that doesn't fix it then put the old ram back in. Last of all, try the PSU.

You're going to have to uninstall them all one at a time until you find the troubled component. I suspect video card first.....

THere's no beep code... tried old ram, tried 1 ram, will update more tomorrow

A little update.. um the computer posted for about 10 minutes, when i tried to install the ATI drivers for the XFX5770, half way thtrough and the computer turned off it self.. right now i put my old PSU back and it seems to be working fine for 15 mins now.. it looks as if the new pSu is faulty??

Probably. Time to swap.

Did you un-install the nvidia drivers before installing the ATI - especially using Drivercleaner in safe mode?

Check the current out of the PSU if you can with a meter. There's some guides online to help you if you've never done it...

Otherwise RMA.

Most people don't have a DVOM, let alone a Ammeter.... Swapping the PSU with a known good working one will be easier.

im gona try to run the psu on another mobo,, so far it boots up i'll see if it can last over an hour
