Hey... Everyone...

Processor: Intel core i7 3930k
Motherboard: Asus Rampage IV Extreme
Cpu Cooler: Corsair H100
Power Supply: Corsair AX1200
Ram: Transcend 2gb 1333mhz (x2)
Graphics Card: Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX 550ti
Cabinet: Cooler Master Cosmos II

Well i created a different thread cuz the problem is slightly different this time...

 

after the last time i got the not booting up problem.. for a few weeks it was completely fine.. and then 2 days back the problem came back... the problem is when i press the power on button nothing happens but all the LEDs in the motherboard were on... and so this problem came back and i eft the system on for a few hours and then it worked again....

 

and yesterday i got the same problem.. so i left it on for sometime and then when i tried to turn it on it restarted a couple of times it didnt even go to bios logo screen but kept restarting and after a few restarts it booted up.. and my date and time settings were wrong.... and everything was fine till yesterday night i turned it off and went to bed.. and today morning when i tired to turn it on the same problem there was no response... so i though since the time change it might be bios problem.... so i removed the cmos battery and inserted it again and then turned it on.. and then the restart loop came again but this time it didnt even boot up at all.. it keeps on restatrting till i turn the power off.  and then i thought maybe the battery was dead so bought a new one and tried to boot with it.. still it kept restarting and then i noticed something on the mother board...

 

one of the q-led was lighting up.. and i checked the manual and its the q-led for the processor... the bottom most one.... it happens like this.. when i press the turn on button it led lights up and then turns off and then restarts then again qled lights up and then turns off... it keeps happeneing even now...

 

so i serached through the internet with the help of a friend... and in one of the forums its written that first i remove both processor and ram sticks and then try booting up.. i tried but there was no response.. like the same problem i had before... and then i inserted just the processor and booted it up the qled lights up and restarts..

 

so wats the problem guys.... im completely confused... dont know what to do....

 

hope u guys can help me....

Thanks... ^_^

sounds like either there is a problem with your processor or your motherboard.

 

Obviously nothing will happen when there is no CPU or RAM in the system, you might get lights but nothing else, the reboot cycle to me sounds like a CPU issue, like there is something telling it to reboot. Pull the CPU out and look through the socket it goes into and see if you can see any debris, look at the pins of the CPU see if there are any bent or missing pins, or shorted pins.

Look at the motherboard, see if there are any blow parts on there, or any broken connections.

Make sure that your power supply to the motherboard is complete and all things are plugged in (24+8+4).

 

Also you should probably consider upgrading your RAM and video card, your CPU and motherboard are top of the line but RAM and GFX are quite low on the market.

Greetings. First time user here. Western Australian winter weather. Same difficulty in what you have all described with very similar specs in many different forums. I'm a computer technician with hardware stock available to swapping out. I had tried everything i could think of, Software and hardware. My only question left is the air conditioning running too cold. I noticed this when I saw the thermostat. (DAMN ICE COLD! Reset thermostat control back to 22Degrees C) Do you boot up your system in a cold environment? Say under 15Degrees C? I have a  'CoolIT ALC Vangate'  intelligent CPU sealed water cooling system with LCD display to which has an alarm system if the temperature is above or below a set standard. As for starting the motherboard I by-passed the ATX power supply switch (Grey and Black, I actually installed a permanent toggle switch) and took a rather large gamble with nothing more than the motherboard, CPU and one RAM module connected. The CPU cooling alarmed at a low-temperature, I left it running until it reached a good 20Degrees C outside of the server room where I play in my spare-time. Switched off the by-pass switch and then booted up successfully using the motherboards Start button. It attempted to boot a few times, sometimes with an 'Over-clock failed' message. (I would get this issue when running my RAM @ 2400MHz (OC) or more. 1666MHz is fine.) This has only been an issue since winter has started and the over-night temperatures have dropped significantly. I can only guess as the CPU or BIOS maybe too cold to start or something along this area. Once booted up and running I have never had a glitch or B.S.O.D. just the internal clock is always incorrect. Nothing too extreme there. So its just the booting up stage that will glitch from time-to-time in cold weather. I did another test to confirm my theory about booting up in cold weather, I ran a basic domestic air heater facing the open side of the tower case last time It wouldn't power up. It worked! These two small tricks have worked for myself every single time. In any case I hope this will help everyone out.
