So im a newbie at building PCS (1st one) but when i turn my computer on it flashes(LEDS) and the fans within spin, aswell as it makes a beeping noise and immediately turns off, like its trying to turn on but fails every time. i have no idea what is wrong with it i did so much research and watched so much videos on what to do but i just can't decide and or make them work. Any help is appreciated<3

Please post your full system spec.
My motherboard is a GIGABYTE B250M-DS3H
My graphics card is a GEFORCE GTX 1050
My power supply is a EVEA/EVGA(Logo is weird) it is 600watts
my Processer is a Intel Core i5
And then i have 2 sticks which is 8GBx2 so 16RAM

I'd opt for a board opposed to a new CPU.

For the money you'd spend on a 6xxx or 7xxx CPU, you could buy a compatible 3xx motherboard for the i5-8400
i have untill april something to return it to Amazon which is where i got it, id get like $211 so im not buying a whole new one with separate money, but would u still recommend a different motherboard? anything in mind that you know would support everything i have?

Yeah, keep the 8400 and return the board. Assuming you can return the board?


There are cheaper options, but these all have 4 dimms slots for future upgrades.
i can not return anything other then the processor but thank you for helping me, ill buy one of the ones in the link you sent:) thank you very much
