PC won't POST
#1
Hi,
I have a self-built mid-range gaming pc, which recently refused to POST.
The day before it stopped, it had started microstuttering. not very frequently, but about 5-6 times a minute. I brushed it off as the game bugging out. The next day, when I try to turn it on, only the fans would start spinning, no POST. I have tried everything from cleaning the pc to reseating the RAM, GPU and even the CPU, cleared the Real Time Clock via a jumper on the motherboard, removed the CMOS battery for a minute and plopped it back in. Nothing seems to work.

Peculiar behaviour: When powered on, the fans initially spin at a lower speed and the LED on the fans are dimmer, which then pop to full potential in a few seconds as if to give me hope. Microstuttering included full system freezes for very short amounts of time with audio bleed and visual fracturing.

Specs:
Mobo: Asus M5A97 LE R2.0
CPU: AMD FX 6300
GPU: Asus Strix Nvidia GTX 960 2GB
RAM: HyperX Fury 1X8GB 1888 MHZ
HDD: 1TB WD Blue SATA
SSD: 128 GB Kingston SSDNow SATA

Hi,

My Asus M4N78 Pro motherboard does the same thing. I think it's going bad.

But what I think was happening was that it seemed to get stuck into a low power mode. After clearing the CMOS via the jumpers and battery, as well as several power cycles, it started to come back to life.

When power cycling the motherboard, turn computer off, flip the switch on back of Power Supply to off or unplug, then hit the power button on computer to discharge any power still left, then plug back in and power on as normal.

Are you able to get to the Bios Settings? if so try resetting the BIOS and see if there are any updates that you can flash.
Also under AI Tweaker in BIOS, make sure EPU Power Saving Mode is disabled,



Do you use any overclocking? If so disable and revert all those settings back to default in the BIOS. And I've had major failures using the AI Suite overclock software!
