there really shouldnt be any part of this computer that is a struggle to put together. maybe attaching the HSF in computer from 5 years ago, but it's not really a big deal now. If you need more help, reply away.

Try removing each piece of memory and trying them separately. Also look at resetting the bios with the jumper on the board.

You may want to remove the graphics card if the problem persist and try running using the hd4000 from the i5.

Default Re: Buying a gaming pc need HELP!

so all in all..this experience with building a pc has been a living hell..my goal was to spend 1300...no more....ive ended up spending 500 extra on mobo that they claimed i broke which i did not but me being new to this i let it slide...4 weeks AFTER getting my parts n tryin to get this pc running...it finally gets there..n lasts for ONE day...now no 1 ever told me moving a pc from here to there would be a problem..but when i got back from my friends house after a night of gaming i plugged my pc in..in booted up..ran for 5 mins then BLUE SCREEN!!!....i turn it off...turn it back on...NOTHING....its not the processor...so now its its ether the mobo AGAIN or the power supply...right now im extremely bummed an wish i had never taken this route..
