My original problem was that it would power up, and then power down, on repeat, but then after reading the "How To Troubleshoot Your Home-Built PC" article here on pcworld, i jiggled my cpu fan plugs, and it started up and showed BIOS screen.
None of the tech guys i know are responding, so im forced to ask here.
My NEW problem, is that after shutting down to connect the hard drive and optical drive, it starts up, and runs continuously, but does not show video, and i cannot make it go to BIOS menu with a USB keyboard, or a serial keyboard. I have unplugged the HDD and optical drive to see if thats causing the problem, still does not show anything with them unplugged.
I have jiggled various power supply wires, made sure things are in correctly, but no such luck, yes, my monitor is on, and yes, the monitor says it is connected, but there is nothing to be seen.
ANY help in this matter would be greatly appreciated, and i am not against live support as well, im going to be here the rest of today, and every day until wednesday, so i can run tests on it if necessary.
If my tech guys respond and help me fix it, then i will post my solution here. Thank you for your help in this matter, this is my first home built PC, and ive spent 1000$ on it (before prices went up) and dont want it to go to waste.
