Hi guys,

OK just finished building a new system about 6 hours ago,

Cpu: Amd 6core fx6500
graphics: sapphire 7850 of edition 2gb
ram: ddr3 1600mhz 8gb
hdd: wd blue caviar 1tb
motherboard: asrock 970 extreme 3
psu: antec 500w

OK problem I have is that computer boots up perfect but when I shut it down and try turn back on I get no image on screen, how I fix the problem is turn the psu off at the switch on the unit then turn it of then back on again then the image appears???? I'm confused as hell

I have checked cabling and re seated the ram and re seated graphics card I have honestly ran out of ideas???

Please help

OK, first of all you need to accurately post your specs. There is no fx 6500; there is a 6500 however it is not a fx; it is an A8. Occasionally amd will release chips for evaluation with odd part# If you have one of these, please post the exact cpu with the part#

Next issue; antec pw supply. Antecs are ok for a basic build ie onboard video, running office, etc. They are not recommended for gaming. The exception would the the high current line; that is fine for gaming.

Next when you post your specs; post the exact part. If possible post links to your parts. As an example, 8gig of ram does not really tell us much; 2x4gig of corsair zzz123 tells us a LOT more.

I'm guessing your graphics card is actually a Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 OC 2 GB - which is a dual-width, dual-fan model.

I couldn't find its recommended power supply requirements, but it's my guess your Antec 500W power supply can't handle it.
