  1. When I hit the power switch it turns on and the screen comes on to boot up. I get to access BIOS for a couple of seconds then it immediately shuts off. Also two beeps occur right after I turn it on
    Hey guys, just finished building my first PC.
    I have:
    ASUS M5A97 R2.o Motherboard
    Radeon 270 AMD 2GB GPU
    CX 430 Corsair PSU
    AMD 95W 6 core CPU

    I unplugged the SATA cables and power to the optical drive, hardrive, and tried using one stick of RAM only it. Please help!

    Two beeps can mean memory on some boards. While two beeps can mean video on other boards. You might want to reseat your GPU.

    Make sure you have the 4 or 6 pin AUX 12volt cable plugged into the motherboard near the CPU
