Hi, i recently bought a new psu, a CORSAIR GS800 and 4gb ddr2 mmry
I bought the new psu for my gaming rig, because since i built my pc it had a problem that happens now more often...
when i press the on button of the case it turns on only the fans, of every component but, i dont get signal in the monitor and the hard drive activity seems to be zero because is no blinking, sometimes that LED indicator is ON and sometimes is OFF.
I have to turn ON and OFF like 30 to 50 times the pc to get a response on the hardrive activity LED and then the system goes on
*when it starts the video card fan spin faster
*i bought the psu because i thought that was the problem, i used to have a 600watt psu pretty cheap that came with the case thats why i bought the corsair 800watts psu

Thanks, sorry about my bad english :S
Remove the memory and try with just a few sticks of ram in the system.
Try replacing the motherboard battery.
Update the motherboard BIOS.
RMA the motherboard.
thank for the reply,
ill try changing the battery but where can i get them? are them "special" or they are like any battery, i cant update the motherboard bios because there's no monitor being detected, whats the RMA of the motherboard?...
You can purchase a CMOS battery inexpensively for a few dollars at a local electronics store.
ASUS boards can be updated within Windows using their ASUS Update utility, it may be a bit risky compared to doing it the traditional way but it is easier.
RMA means returning it back to the manufacturer for a new one.
I found that my pc turns on when i release the ON button slowly, i dont know how to explain that, but it works, i think the CASE push button has short or something like that, ill post a video so u can see how it happens...
I actually have a similar problem, if not the same. The system doesn't always complete boot after a press on the power button (but fans are spinning) but after a few resets it does (I noticed reset works better than power on/off).
I thought about changing the power supply but it's not that annoying and also, "good" to hear that it didn't work for you ;). What works for me is to flick the switch on the PSU to OFF after the PC has shut down. Later, when I turn the PSU on again and then press the power button it usually boots at the first try.
Mine "clicks" so I can't try releasing it slowly, besides, it's a momentary switch so honestly I don't think it would matter. Don't let this stop you from posting a video about the problem though.
I think it's motherboard related, perhaps a problem with the power regulators? I don't think it's the battery since it's been like this from the start in both my and Ranz13l1ty's case.
I think for both of you, it's the power switches themselves. Ranz: see if you can contact NZXT directly and ask for a new power switch. Hnk: not sure what brand of case you have, but try the same thing.
Basically, the motherboard isn't getting a clean "PWR ON" signal via the power switch. Depending on where you guys live, you can check your local electronics store (Radio Shack, not Best Buy) and see if they have any switches that you can buy to confirm.
It has been a long time since I've seen a power button problem. I have one that I ripped from an old case for testing issues like this. You need to call NEXT and have them send you another switch.
THANKS A LOT FOR THE REPLIES :D
ill try buying the button and see what happens...
and also ill record the video this week if i can :)
No need to buy a new powerswitch for testingpurposes. Use a small screwdriver to momentarily short the power switch connector on the motherboard.The power switch lead from the front panel goes on 2 posts. Touch a screwdriver to those 2 posts simultaneously.
Depending on the level of technical knowledge I re-frame from telling people to try risky procedures such as shorting a connector with a screwdriver. ;)
The screwdriver does basicly the same as a powerbutton; shortening the two post momentarily and is realy safe and simpel. Depending on the level of technical knowledge, removing memory, replacing CMOS-battery's and updating motherboard BIOS's isn't without risks either.
We say that now and later find pictures on the internet of a house fire.. lol
ill try that, thats not a big deal and its logic since im studing electronic basics in my school
