14 posts in this topic

Hey guys.

I got some parts from a friend and was bloutting it back together. One thing I can't figure out is why the cpu seams not to be getting any power. The fans and every thing are running but the procceser is still cold as a rock.. any ideas?

Try reseating it. Could be a memory error too, try swapping out RAM when possible.

Made sure you plugged in the 24-pin and 4/8-pin cords?

Are you getting any beeps? Well have a speaker onboard at all?

Unplug everything and try a minimal boot: motherboard, CPU, RAM, plug a monitor in the integrated graphics (if no IGP add a discrete card), keyboard and mouse. 6 screws with large flat heads connecting the motherboard to the case. 24-pin and 4-pin CPU power connections made. If you're not getting into BIOS try resetting the BIOS. If that fails you probably have a defective part, it's either the PSU, RAM, CPU or motherboard. Swap with known working parts if possible to identify the culprit.

Your PS should have a single 8 pin cable for that spot..

What motherboard/powersupply is this?

You need to have a 8pin plug into the mainboard. That powers the CPU. The CPU needs it's own power.

The 8 pin behind the CPU is plugged in. It's the asrock p43d motherboard and a coolermsster 460 Watt psu
