Motherboard Issue/No Boot to Bios

October 23, 2019 at 09:26:54
Specs: Windows 10
My computer will not boot to bios, only thing it does is the processor fan runs. Seems anything else draws power it will shut down. Purchased a replacement processor, motherboard and 600 watt PS. Have MB out of case and only thing hooked up is the CPU Power and the 24 pin and processor fan

Most modern processors require a separate power supply to the 24-pin one. You might get a more meanigful answer if you told us which motherboard and which processor you have. Otherwise it's just guesswork.

You didn't provide any info about the hardware.

You cannot get into BIOS until there is at least one stick of compatible RAM installed.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

OK, should be a decent board. I checked the compatibility list & the CPU is supported. You didn't post the power supply info though. Just saying it's 600W isn't all that helpful, we need the make/model. The FX-8350 is a 125W CPU so you need a decent unit. I see the board has an 8-pin ATX power connector for the CPU just behind the PS/2 ports, do you have that plugged in?

What RAM do you have? The board doesn't appear to have a built-in piezo speaker; do you have a PC speaker connected to the board? You'll need that to be able to hear any error codes.

I'm giving up on this. Not going to spend anymore money on parts from Ebay that don't work and they don't want to replace them. Probably will just add the hard drive to my existing computer and be done with it.

That's why I would never try to setup a computer myself : if it does not boot, it can be ANY hardware that is failing, and when you bring it in the shop, they will tell you whatever part failed, and need to be replaced. For most of us, it's not that hard to mess something up, and you will never know what is wrong, how you messed it up, and how to fix it. It's all very technical, but even more than that, the liability of these things is a big guess. So you've just spend whatever money, then to find nothing works. You can't sell the parts because each part may be worthless. Nothing can be repaired, be sure of that, unless you have a degree in electric device fixing, and nobody has that, these days.

Try again...many of us here do just that, and some of us do it for a living.....

I've built well over 100 systems. I've only had issues with a couple of them and it's pretty easy to figure out what the problem is.

I built all of the systems for myself and family since the beginning of the Windows XP days, probably two dozen by now (except laptops) and I only had an issue with one that took more than a few minutes to figure out.
This is why we always recommend bench testing the hardware systematically (Google 'bench test computer') to eliminate all of the major hardware right from the start before building. I have to admit that I have skipped this step on a few that were 'routine' without problems but would have teared them down to start over if issues came up.
Like many, I started out repairing and upgrading my Windows 95 machine and went on from there, learning as I went and often came here for advice, now sharing it.

I had a similar problem once. It turned out the PSU had an external 110/220v voltage switch that was set at 220 when it should have been 110. If yours is similar (some PSUs auto detect the voltage) you should check it's in the correct position. Don't guess and don't experiment; just verify. If you need to change it do so with the power cord removed.
