Boot error? or not enough power?


Recommended Posts

I just finished my PC cut my hand like 50 times while assemblying it, I have

 

AMD 64 939 3500

Thermaltake Butterfly 480W

DFI LanParty UT Ultra-D

Sapphire X800GT 128mb

1GB Ram (generic)

1 IDE Hard Drive

1 Sata Hard Drive

 

But when i try to boot it, the diagnostic lights on the Mobo light up until they get to the VGA LED they dont move past there and my screen turns on fine but just displays the LanParty logo, i cant press delete or go to the bios or anything. Also sometimes the CPU fan and chipset fan powers off while in this stage, which makes me wonder if its a power shortage problem as i only have a 20 pin ATX not 24 pin, but surely theres a way around this my psu just cost me $125 and i would prefer not to waste that. Also there are no diagnostic beeps at the start indicating RAM error or something else, please help i go overseas soon and want this to be working before i go

Only [email protected] & only 20-pin ATX :shake:

 

Pick a "proven winner" from the "A" list :nod: : http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10854

 

You gotta love saying those 2 exact lines david :D

 

But its true what hes saying, I stumbled across that problem yesterday, ordered a psu Hiper Type-R 580W, that should do the trick.

That should do it! :nod:
Just sell your PSU on ebay or forums like hardforum. You could probaly get 60~80 for it which would help offset some cost.
Hard is hard on TT PSU's, sell it on Ebay, the n000ns are clueless! :nod:
