I'm in the process of doing a pc build. The motherboard is a ASRock Fatal1ty z97. The cpu is an i5-4690k. The problem is that the computer (with just the mobo/fan and chip) will turn on and run for about 30 seconds, power down for about 3 seconds and starts back up and is the same cycle over and over. The psu is a 750w so I don't think that should be a problem with what little I have running. First I thought is might be RAM because I didn't realize I was running 1.5 in a 1.3. That didn't fix the issue so I went to the very basics.
Yes, I did reset the bios several time but since the computer has never actually ran consistently trying to reset the bios was never a problem solver. I have I have tightened all screws and check for lose connections but there doesn't seem to be any issues. The motherboard IS used but my friend would never send me a board that had problems that he would have known about. I also called a local pc shop to see if they could run a POST but once they were given my 411 they said no.
Thanks in advance.
