Hello,

Today Iíve been building a pc but it doesnít seem to do anything at all.
When I push the power button only the fans are working and then stop working over and over.
We had this problem with an other computer before, but after replacing the memory in different slots the problem was solved. Unfortunately this doesnít work on this computer.
Specs of my pc:
- Mainbord Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4
- i3 550 processor
- 2x Kingston Hyperx 4 GB DDR3 1333 Mhz
- PSU 580 Watt
I hope someone can help me!
Thanks!
Greetings from the Netherlands!

Did you plug in all the cables properly?

^ In addition to the above question, make sure you carefully review the instructions (product manual) for the motherboard and other hardware components. Check the cables, hardware adjustments (reseating).

Take your time with this and let us know.

Also the components only fit one way, don't force it in.

First thing I notice is that the memory you are using is either 1.65 or 1.7 volt (it is hard to tell without the exact model number) and your motherboard only supports 1.5 volt memory modules. This could be the cause of your issue. One possibilty would be to manually set the timings and voltages in the BIOS if you can access it. If you cannot access the BIOS or that doesn't work then you may need to get memory that works under the 1.5v standard. Also try booting with only one stick in the DDR3_1 slot to see if you can access the BIOS that way.

Check the memory are in the correct slots. Since you are only using 2 sticks they must be in the DDR1_1 and DDR3_3 slots which are, counting from the processor, the second and fourth slots respectively.

Check to be sure your CPU heatsink fan is plugged into the correct header. If it does not detect a fan plugged in there most motherboards will shut down to prevent overheating.

Also check the BIOS revision since the original version is F10 and your processor is supported under F11 you may need to update this as well.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
