Solved Brand new custom built computer does not Boot (black screen)

March 10, 2013 at 14:11:34
Specs: Windows 7
I have ordered the latest Asus ROG motherboard (Maximus V Formula), with a i7-3770K quad-core processor, two sets of 8GB DDR3-2133Mhz 240-pin DIMM Corsair Vengeance Red Desktop CMZ8GX3M2A2133C11R, an Asus BW-12B1ST Internal Blu-Ray Burner, and a 2 TB 6Gb/s Serial ATA HDD Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001, running with a BenQ HD 17"monitor. Well, I have spent some good time building systems so no wrong assembly can be the cause. System lights up the LEDs, run the fans, and without making ANY noise ... it restarts. I could never hear any beeps, nor the BIOS setup can be activated no matter what. I have re-checked processor, memory, and all connections, just to make sure. The only thing I can think of is a defective part or incompatibility (motherboard x memory). Any ideas?

Hi there,
Aftyer examining VERY close, I found out that the motherboard had a deffect in the CPU contact. Got authorized for a replacement. Hope that works out.
Thanks for the hints.

Did you benchtest outside the case? No hard drives or optic drives. Just the the motherboard with CPU and fan, 1 stick of ram, Keyboard plugged in and monitor connected to onboard graphics. You didn't mention in your list of components whether you have a discrete graphics card nor which powersupply you are using.

Could it be a weak power supply? Was the CPU heatsink installed correctly with the proper amount of paste using the vertical line method?
