    Default GA-H55M-S2H will not power on! Help needed.

    Cannot turn on system:

    Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2H
    i3 530 @ stock
    4x2GB OCZ Platinum's CAS 6
    Using integrated video and audio
    Corsair 400W PSU
    500GB WD Black

    Built system 2 months ago, all new parts from Micro Center. Updated to latest BIOS at the time, don't remember what it is now, and can't power up system to check.

    About 2 weeks ago the system just powered itself off from Windows 7 x64 desktop. Turned back on immediately with power button.

    Last night we shut down the system and went to bed.

    Woke up this morning and system will not power on. When the power button is pressed the system acts like it will power on for a split second, then shuts right back off. Reset and power buttons are then unresponsive. Cycling the PSU power switch yields the same results. Tried a different mobo battery and clearing CMOS, nothing. Took out mobo battery as I type this up. Will put it back in in awhile to see if anything changes.

    Have attempted disconnecting power to PSU for 30 minutes and attempt to start. No dice.

    Disconnected all unnecessary items from motherboard.

    Tested PSU with power supply tester, and on another system. Voltages in nominal ranges, all good to go.

    Tried powering on again with just one stick of RAM at a time.

    None of this has made the system power on.

    What's next? Re-seat the CPU? The tower has not been moved recently, nor has the case been open.

    All my diagnostics point to the mobo. Anybody else experiencing these problems?

    Thanks for any/all advice. Peace!

    Ok, but this was brand new 2 months ago, and its a Corsair PSU. I know my TX750 is rock solid, but I don't have any experience with the 400W Corsair.

    Hopefully its not as picky as a DFI NF4 - at any rate - why would it work fine for a few months, and then stop working all together?

    I will see if I can power the system with another PSU.

    i dont know,but to be 100% sure its best to go through each component one at a time start with psu,you say youve tested one ram stick at a time?? removed cmos battery?? next thing id look at is the cpu socket be careful not to damage anything and look for any even slightly bent pins,makesure heatsink is fitted correctly and not overtightened or the heatsink backplate isnt shorting on the case

    Alrighty then.

    Tried a 550W known good PSU. No Go. Does the same thing. Acts like its going to turn on for a split second and then right back off.

    So. I tried the CX400 PSU on another rig, runs just fine.



    Also, I removed the heatsink, all RAM, and CPU. Checked all pins with my trusty electronic microscope. All good.

    Put everything back together. Still no better results.

    Calling it a night. Gonna go play some games on my other rig.

    How does one start an RMA request? Through the forums, or through Giga's site?

    Laters!

    Have you cleared the CMOS for a long time yet? If not please try doing so using the long method I outline in post #2 here
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/

    Then if no luck try one stick of memory and clear it again and try once more, I know you tried this but please try again after long CMOS clear or try different memory if you can. If no luck after that please try the board out of the case and OFF the motherboard tray, with only one stick of memory, your GFX card if using one, and CPU/Heatsink only. NO CD/DVD drives or hard drives.

    RMA page is here if things come to that

    So, powered up my old DFI LP UT NF4 Ultra-D with the CX400 today. Stress tested for awhile using a GTS 250. G2G.

    Tried some Corsair Dominator-GT's and an i7-860 in the S2H. No change. Tried all the stuff you linked to. Still no change.

    RMA submitted. Will update progress when I get some. Thanks to all for your help.

    Peace.

    Sorry to hear you couldn't get this going! Maybe the PSU is not compatible or not good enough?

    Let us know how the RMA goes for you

    No, the PSU is functioning properly. I was able to run my DFI LP UT NF4 Ultra-D for several hours yesterday without a problem. I don't know if you had ever owned ANY NF4 system, but they were MOST picky about PSU's, especially DFI's.

    Welcome to Corsair :: CX Power Supplies

    Supports the latest ATX12V v2.2 standard and is backwards compatible with ATX12V 2.01 systems.
    This PSU has a 30A 12V rail, and I am satisfied that it is good to go if I can run my NF4 w/ a GTS 250. I only used a GTS 250 because that mobo has to have a dedicated GPU.

    Then if I plug the CX400 into the GA-H55M-S2H - nothing. It just "pops", lights flicker, and then nothing.

    30A should be plenty for an i3-530 running stock speeds using the integrated Intel HD graphics. I wouldn't have any concerns with using that PSU on this system and adding a GTS 250 or less in the future.

    This is basically an internet machine I built for a homie. He wanted a decent rig made from some better than Dell quality parts. It's been flawless for months.

    Gigabyte is exceptional, however I don't really like the mobo mount spacing. WAY too much board flex, even with the stock cooler. I've got a Xigmatek Crossbow on order for the replacement mobo we get.

    Yeah, will def keep you guys updated! Peace!

    Well I meant maybe the PSU is not enough for this setup possibly?

    When you say "Pops" what do you mean by that??? Doesn't sound good at all if there is a actual poping sound, sounds like a short somewhere to me!!

    Did you try it outside of the case and off the motherboard tray? That would eliminate shorts, unless the xigmatek is shorting something on the front or back.

    If you are unsure of that and you haven't sent the board off yet try it with the stock cooler outside of the case and on a wooden table or cardboard box.
