You did hook the power supply up, right? ;)

Is it plugged into the wall outlet?



:D



Seriously- could be a bad connector on the mobo, dead fan- any number of issues. Try taking a fan that you *know* works, and use it on the same connector.

Run memtest. To thoroughly test the RAM you could be looking at days. I prefer 8 passes. Test it with all your RAM in. If it'll pass 8 passes with all your RAM then odds are the RAM is fine. Maybe burn an UBCD and run HDTune to check for errors?

Is this a fresh install of Windows?

Sadly mates , my long awaited new computer is no more!! The mother board is damaged as is the cpu.

What happened was the case panel fan's connector was too short to reach the motherboard so i cut it and joined the wires, whilst seeing if the fan was working ok , a bare wire touched the case and the machne stopped and then restarted. It has blue screened ever since. I tried to reinstall but i cant even load windows.stop error 0x0000000A there are others too.

I have striped the machine down , removed the cpu, there looks like a liitle scorching on it
E8400 45nm , so i gues both the motherboards p5q se/r are damaged beyond repair. I have waited over a year for this and in eagerness to get going i have killed it.

Lesson . dont be a dick. take your time.
I will need to wait several more months before i can get new stuff.

Aw- that's BS! :( :thumbdwn:

I'm sorry to hear that, bro- that really frikkin' sucks. :(

You ordered through an e-tailor, right? Can you send it in for replacement or refund? I mean, what's the return policy? Why not try for a refund, once you get the refund, buy a new mobo + cpu?

I bought the mother board earlier this year but had not used it, so i dont even remember where i got it. Cant find receipts or anything. might get the cpu swapped out but doubt it.

Quick update mates. Been in touch with supply comany today , they are going to test cpu and motherboard for me, I think everything else has escaped. I got a new Zotac GTX 260 seems that is ok also.

So I will now have to wait a bit longer for new computer.

Ouch dude, I can totally vouch for the "take your time" thing. Honestly if I see a fan, power cable, or pin out of whack I'll avoid using it if possible.

Another thing that has saved me countless hours of troubleshoot time is to setup your system externally first. Get some clean boots and your OS install done with no errors etc. Then if your stable xfer to your case. That way if anything goes wrong hardware-wise out of the gate you can easily switch parts out. Just don't set it on anything that could short it out, cause it to overheat, or catch something on fire. :P
