Well, I knew it would happen sooner or later. This is the fourth build and up till now every one has started right off the bat. Not so with this one. Here is the layout:
MB - Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3
Processor - AMD FX8350 4GHZ 16MB 125W AM3+ 8-core Black Edition
RAM - Patriot Viper Xtreme 2-4GB PC3-12800 1600 MHZ
SSD - Samsung SSD 840EVO
HD - WD10EZEX Blue 1TB
Video - GeForce GT520 1GB DDR3 Dual DVI
PS - Corsair TX750 Enthusiast Series
Case - ULTRA DEFENDER MIDTOWER GAMING CASE - WHITE
When I turned the system on for the first time the CPU fan started to turn and then stopped. For a bit I thought it was just one of the circuits that control fan speeds holding it from running. One of the cooling fans started and ran okay but that was about it. Nothing showed up on the monitor. Probably had it on for a minute or two and then shut it down. After perhaps ten minutes I tried it again with similar results except that the CPU fan ran for a couple of seconds and then stopped. At that point I shut it down immediately. During that time the processor got fairly warm. I could hold my hand on the cooler, but not much more.
I can follow instructions and put these things together, but I'm not technically astute enought to know what to do when this happens. Hope that's enough info. If not, let me know. And thanks in advance, I'll appreciate any help anyone can give.
