My Parts list:[/size]
CPU - Intel Core i3 6100 3.7GHz[/size]
GPU - Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050ti[/size]
MB - Gigabyte B250M-DS3H Motherboard [/size]
PSU - EVGA 450BV 450-Watt Power Supply [/size]
HDD - 500GB Seagate HDD [/size]
RAM - 8GB Crucial RAM. [/size]
All parts were purchased brand new and were deemed compatible by PCPartPicker.[/size]
I'm able to boot it and get into the BIOS, and it stays in there and everything seems fine, but if I load a Windows installation DVD/USB, the computer will show the blue Windows logo. I'll see the dots at the bottom start to load and all of a sudden the computer shuts off completely. A few seconds later, it turns back on.[/size]
There's no operating system. I just built it, so there's nothing on it yet.[/size]
Parts I've tested and I know are working:[/size]
- Power Supply (Tested in another computer)[/size]
- GPU (Tested in another computer)[/size]
- RAM (Ran Memtest and everything was fine)[/size]
- HDD (Tested in another computer)[/size]
- Very likely the motherboard (RMA'd it and they said it was fine)[/size]
Things I've done to try to fix it:[/size]
- I RMA'd the motherboard and the same one was sent back because Gigabyte claimed there were 'no issues'.
- I've tried another 650-Watt Power supply coming directly from another working computer, and it shows the same result.
- I've tried several different Windows 10 USBs and DVDs, and I've also tried them on another computer and they work fine. I've also tried various versions of Linux yet none boot.
- The CPU temp, when it's sitting in the BIOS, is 37C (Around 91F).
- There is a stock Intel CPU cooler with thermal paste. The case has an extra 2 fans. I don't think overheating is an issue.
Latest MB revision. I took the whole thing apart and put it back together again. Took out CMOS battery for 10min and put back in. [/size]
I was able to boot from a USB drive with Windows 7 into Safe Mode. You can't install Windows through Safe Mode however. I enabled boot logging and here's the log it gave me: https://pastebin.com/w31bDEqy
Yes, all cables are plugged in correctly (8-pin 12v, 24-pin, CPU Cooler, etc.)[/size]
This is a bit of a long read, but I'm seriously stuck here. This was my first computer build for myself, and I was planning on finishing the build late August. I even sold my MacBook Pro to get the money for this build. Any help would be greatly appreciated.[/size]
