    I'm at my wits end with my new build. Bought everything a couple of weeks ago and could never get the system to boot for more than 1 second. Sent everything back to Scan and they said the memory was faulty (which seemed quite unlikely).

    I received my goods back today with a new set of memory, put it all together and it still wont boot up! Can someone please help!

    My spec is:
    Asus P8z68-V GEN3
    i5 2500k
    Corsair 8GB 1600MHz.
    Cooler Master 500w PSU

    Im using the standard heatsink and have no other components connected. If i press the on button the VGA button lights once and at the same time the CPU light comes on twice very quickly then turns off. If i hold down the power light the CPU light blinks 4 times but I'm not sure if this is related to the problem. I have checked the ATX CPU power is plugged in correctly and the heatsink is on tightly.

    Has anyone got any suggestions to try?


    Thanks in advance

    Are you using integrated graphics?

    Do you also have the 8pin atx cable in?
