Hi all,

 

Was wondering if you guys could shed some light on a problem im having, my brother asked me to upgrade his rig.

I got him a new motherboard, new case, new ram and new cpu, he is still using the same hard drive,GPU and PSU.

 

the problem is that after the bios, windows 7 in starting to load up, then blue screens for half a second and the computer restarts.

 

 

Case:                 crosair carbide 400r

motherboard:     Asus Z87 pro

CPU:                  intel core i5 4670 6mb

GPU:                  evga nvidia gtx 670

Ram:                  x2 4gb ddr3 kingston

Hard drive:         Hitachi 640gb sata 3.0

PSU:                  dynex DX PS500w

 

the hard drive is not broken, it works on other computers, so I'm thinking its the power supply, the z87 pro has an 8pin atx 12v, while the PSU has a 4pin atx 12v, i was reading around and people said that you can use the 4pin on the 8pin, but im thinking its not getting enough power.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Cheers!

That's sorta on the low side, I would recommend 750watt

So a quick update, I went out and got a new psu, its a crosair tx 850 watt, plugged it all in, and still got th blue screen, so I just put in a new hard drive, and I'm in the process of installing windows 7, I think the problem might have been that the old hard drive had conflicting motherboard software and was not able to boot, I will do another update after the installation finishes

Ok, that sounds good, always make sure to install the drivers for your motherboard after installing windows.

So I just installed the OS , and all the drives, and on the final restart of the computer I was not able to turn the computer on, so i put the old 500watt psu back in and it works fine, if I put the 850watt in the computer turns on and off constantly, but this is a brand new 850watt psu...any ideas, maybe faulty psu?

oh, i should have concluded this thread,  here is an update, just incase any one ever has the problem i had.

 

as soon as i purchased the new psu (850 watt), i was getting the same blue screen, so i figured it was it was motherbord driver issue since i was using an old Hard drive,

as soon as i installed the OS on a new hard drive everything was fine, but then the psu died on me, i tested the new 850 watt psu on 2 riggs, it was doing the same thing (turning on and off)

 

so i went and got them to exchange the psu for another, i ploped that in the new rigg and bam, everything was working fine.

 

cheers
