Thread: GA-EP35C-DS3R not POSTing

    Default GA-EP35C-DS3R not POSTing

    Above mo/bo was working fine then when I switched it on the other day it would not POST. Power light on (on case) and HD LED on steady, also all phase LEDs on mo/bo lit.

    I have checked the PSU and all voltages are good.

    Stripped the mo/bo back to just RAM and CPU, no graphic card or other add-in cards nor any HDs connected.

    Symptoms the same. Won't POST, power, HD LED and all phase LEDs lit.

    From this info can anyone deduce if it's the mo/bo or CPU at fault?

    I still wouldn't rule out the Power supply, I've had it were the PSU outputs the proper voltages on all the rails but on the +12V rail didn't have enough current to drive anything in that specific rig anymore... .But I'm still using it in a much smaller PC today...

    Do you have a spare PSU that you use as a test?

    also can you list a complete hardware list of what you are using? and possible settings from the bios if you had an overclock... also include your cooling methods please.

    Main Rig
    OS = Win8.1
    CPU = i7-980X @ 4.17Ghz 144x29 cooled by custom Loop
    Mem = 12GB 2000Mhz corsair Dominator GT at 2010Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-2T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3 e770
    GPU = 2x Sapphire r9 290x in xfire
    HD = 4x PNY 120GB Raid 0
    Storage = 2TB WD Black
    PSU = EVGA SuperNOVA 1300w
    Case = Cooler Master HAF-X 945

    HTPC / Home Server
    OS = Win7 64Bit running XBMC HTPC Front end with Windows Server 2011 Virtual Machine with 8GB ram assigned for homer server with exchange
    CPU = AMD 1090T
    Mem = 16GB 1600Mhz Kingston RED Limited Edition running at 1600Mhz
    MB = Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup
    PSU = Corsair TX750
    Case = Too embarrassed to mention.

    Unfortunately I don't have a spare PSU to test with.

    The rig was originally o/clocked by increasing the FSB to 400MHz but the BIOS was set to warn and shut down at 15C below TJ (75C or 80C I think).
    The rig has run like that for over 2 years without any problem and the o/clock was set after stress testing and monitoring CPU temperatures for over 5 hours.

    4 SATA drives, 1 IDE DVD burner, FDD, GTX460 graphics card, 2x2GB DDR2 RAM Stock cooling.

    With your system off, unplug the A.C. power cord from the back of the psu or the wall outlet.
    Remove and re-seat all cable connects, then remove and re-seat all memory and hardware cards.
    Check to see that your cpu cooler is not loose and is secure.
    Now would be a good time to blow out all accumulated dust from the inside of the computer case.
    You should borrow a decent power supply to test with.

    You're wasting your time and ours by not providing a detailed hardware list.
    I won't assist further in your thread until you've provided this information.

    We can best help you after you create a detailed hardware list in the System Specs portion of your
    forum profile at the bottom of the
    profile page or in your forum signature
    Be sure to include brand names and model numbers.
