Z77A-G45 Issue
« on: 15-June-12, 04:30:15 »

Hello,
Two day ago my PC stopped working. Now when I try to turn on the PC it turns on for around 10 seconds (screen is blank) and then shut off and keep on repeating this cycle.  I have tested the PC in it's basic setup (motherboard, CPU and PSU) and with a different PSU unfortunately same issue is occurring. Also, the motherboard speaker is not making any sound at all. Has anyone encountered anything like this?

Additional detail: The PC was working fine since April 28th until June 12th. The system was also not overclocked. I have tried to reset my CMOS using the Battery method and the button at the back of my motherboard.

Motherboard: MSI Z77A-G45 ATX LGA 1155 DDR3 3PCI-E16 4PCI-E1 SATA3 DVI HDMI VGA DX11 USB3.0
CPU: Intel i5 2500K 3.3GHz Sandy Bridge 6MB
Ram: 2x4GB DDR3-1866 CL9-10-9-27
Video Card: Palit Radeon HD 4870 Sonic 512MB PCIe w/Dual Link
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
OS: Win 7 x64 Ultimate
PSU: OCZ GAMEXSTREAM 600W (+3.3V/36A, +5V/30A, +12V1/18A, +12V2/18A, +12V3/18A, +12V4/18A, -12V/0.5A, +5Vsb/3.0A)

And what does the rest of the system consist of ? >>Posting Guide<<
A system that just dies after having worked normally means a dead components somewhere. The only way to find out which one, is to have a similar system available for component exchange to trace which one.
Have you done  full CMOS clear ? >>Clear CMOS Guide<<
Have you tried your MB outside the case on a non-conducting surface. i.e. a piece of cardboard or untreated wood ?

Thanks fore reply. I apologize for not providing the sufficient details. The topic is now updated with the appropriate details. Yes, I have tried a bare bone set up and resetting my CMOS by using the battery method and using the switch at the back of the motherboard.

I suggest that you test with another PSU and see if the issue remains.

I see you have already tried another PSU but the question is what amps does that PSU have on the 12V rail. That 4870 needs quite a bit of power and it may well be that the PSU is not strong enough to power the system.

The topic was updated couple of minutes ago with all the PSU information. However, like I said I have tested the system with only CPU, motherboard and PSU and the same issue was occurring.

Take out your processor and RAM, and resit them again.

Thank you for your guys quick replies.

Just to clarify, I should take out my RAM and CPU and unplug the power and try to reset CMOS using the new method described in this topic: http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=31222.0

Yes, reseat the memory and CPU.
Clear CMOS by removing the power cord first. Then cycle your on/off switch to ensure all caps are discharged.
Now use your clear CMOS switch or the jumper. Then remove the battery for a while.
Also reseat your power cables on the motherboard to ensure proper connectivity.

If all that makes no difference, then its time to test your CPU on another known working board, the same goes for the RAM. If the CPU and RAM work fine on another system, then its time to have the MB replaced under warranty.

I have done what you guys have told me to unfortunately the result remains the same. I don't have any other motherboard that would support this processor. Is there any other way of testing the CPU?

Take it to a PC shop that is prepared to test it for you.
