The following are my equipment (omitting my storage drives): - Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor - ARCTIC Freezer i32 CPU Cooler - G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory - Gigabyte Radeon R9 390 8 GB Video Card - Rosewill TYRFING ATX Mid Tower Case - EVGA SuperNOVA GS 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply
Motherboards (MB): - MSI Z270 GAMING M6 AC LGA 1151 Intel Z270 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard (1) - Asus PRIME B250M-C-CSM Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (2) - ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO/Whetstone LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 Z170 ATX Motherboard (3)
I tried starting up my PC one night using MB 1 and I was not getting any response. I thought my motherboard may have been fried, so I purchased MB 2, hooked everything up, and I was not getting anything on my monitor. My fans were working so I would guess power is getting to my MB. I have a spare MB 3, so I decided to try to hook it up and I got the same problem. MB 3 gave a code of 00 and my fans were working. (I don't use MB 3 because my RAM is not compatible but I did use a RAM that was compatible from a friend, but with no luck). I re-hooked up MB 2 this morning with minimum equipment and I am still having the same issues. I did double check to see if the CPU power is hooked up properly.
My guess is that my power supply that feeds to the CPU is bad. I did purchase a new power supply and a new case (not here yet). I am also confident that I am hooking up the power supply correctly from my case to the MB.
Ruling out that my monitor may be bad (I am going to try to hook it up on a working computer just to make sure soon), what could be the problem?
