Help Needed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Keep in mind, I am total noob

I attempted to turn on my computer the other day, and nothing happened. I mean literally, nothing happened. Computer won't even POST.

The LED's on the motherboard were still on(as they always are), but the CPU, graphics cards, HDD wouldn't turn on. (fans weren't spinning) I pressed the main power switch on the back of the power supply, and the fan on the power supply barely spins.

Not knowing what I am doing, I tried to narrow down power issues. Disconnected the second GPU, and secondary hard drives, still nothing. Basically bare essentials to boot

Just to try something different, I swapped the location of the CPU fan power, and the computer started right up. Shut down the computer, moved the 3 pin connector back to its original place, and everything is fine. Reconnected all hardware, and I was good to go.

I thought all of my worries were over until this happened again today. Started with the CPU fan connector, and the computer works again.

Does this make any sense, and does anyone know where the problem is? Please don't tell me the motherboard is bad. Just bought the computer in December with no warranty.
