Boot problem i think !
 
When i press the power button sometimes the screen displays some bios info about the marvel controller and at the bottom it says press "space" to continue and after a sec the screen goes black and the computer starts without the windows logo and sometimes PC starts up without showing any thing !!! :shok::shok::shok:

what the heck is wrong with it
Core i5 2400
P8P67 pro
4GB Ram @1600 (stock)
Adata SSD 64GB
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1.5TB
and a moment ago i restarted the PC and it turned completely off and then after a sec turned back on and the screen was black and i was pressing delete repeatedly so i can go to the bios to check the Voltages and Clocks and it did even start windows or get into bios so i had to press the power button for 4 sec to turn off and then back on and now i am posting this topic. I really need help here:sad:

check your ram.

bestest and smartest thing to do is get it together+on+testing on thine table,mobo box etc. why? because of threads like this.

Dan is saying if pulled from the case and setup on say the motherboard box you eliminate shorting as a cause, have you changed anything in the BIOS to cause this issue?
Was it POSTing fine before and now isnt?
Have you tried a CMOS reset?

the press space to continue you might have a disk inside you cd ( dvd) tray, and what might bwe happening is it sees the disk but cannot boot from it so it coninues into windows.

Bamm bet you got it, completely missed that *facepalm. Now I feel foolish:doh:
In my defense I havnt used a optical drive in quite sometime.

Though that doesnt explain this:

yes i changed the XMP setting in the Ram and when i found the problem i entered the bios and selected "boot menu " and picked the SSD as my Primary boot drive that is all, at the beginning i did not pay much of an attention to it cause i thought this is how the system boots up with this board and all, but then i noticed the problem. how to reset the CMOS in this board it does not have a button and i can not remember whether i found it in the bios or not.

one question, if shorting is a problem and it is fixed when the system is outside, why would i need the case ?
i mean if the shorting problem exists with the system being inside the case what can i do about it ?

yes there was a DVD in the optical drive but it was happening before i put it in.
i hat to say it but i think i will never build a PC again cause i hate problems like this i can deal with the software very easily with some assistance but the hardware is really getting on my nerve.

Update : i looked at the user guide and i found that the red LED i was talking about which exists on the top right of the board is a DRAM LED and i believe that it only lights up when there is something wrong with the ram, what i did in the bios was enabling XMP so the RAM can run on the stock speed 1600 MHZ so, should i use the memOK button (how to use it , while the system starts right after pressing the power button or before powering the system ?) or go to the bios and restore defaults or something like that ??? hopefully this ends the problem.
