PC won't start

I am helping my friend build his pc and it will not start up. We took it to best buy geek squad and they didn't know either, they tried their own power supply and it wouldn't start up. We checked out the motherboard website and it said the r3 1400 wasn't on the compatibility list of the b350 pc mate, so he got another cpu and it still won't start up.

Now that I typed this all out I'm starting to belive it is the motherboard, can anyone confirm this?

Disconnect both drives and see if it at least gets through POST. If not, I suppose it could be the GPU, but a bad motherboard or faulty wiring are the most likely suspects.

  1. Power down your system

  2. Disconnect and/or remove; hard drive, Memory, graphics card, CD... Just leave the power supply connected to the motherboard and power up.... Listen for beep error codes... Let me know what happens and we can continue to troubleshoot/isolate the problem.
