post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was playing Dirt 2 when all of a sudden in the middle of a race my screen went black and the sound stopped. When I tried to shut the computer off by holding the power button, nothing happened. The only way to shut it off was to flip the switch on the back of the psu. I instantly started googleing things and tried the suggestions, but nothing worked. What I have done so far:

-Reseat gpu in both pci-e slots -Didn't display anything, no change.
-Try gpu in another computer -It worked just fine.
-Try PSU in another computer - Worked just fine
-Replace RAM and put in differant channels - Still no change, not displaying.
-Clear CMOS/Hold Power Button Down while not plugged in - No change, no display
-Plugged in a speaker to the mobo and there are no beeps
-Try both DVI ports on gpu

The Motherboard is still getting power as it is still charging both my phones and my speakers, fans come on and spin, hdd and power led come on and stay on.

What is going on? What else should I do to troubleshoot? I don't have a spare mobo or cpu, so that puts a damper on fully troubleshooting

Unplug the CPU heatsink fans. check the heatsink if is warm/hot. If is cold, CPU or Voltage regulators are dead. If is warm... I have no idea

I would unplug the power cable, take the battery out for a few mins, only run the essential components, HDD, GPU, keyboard mouse etc and one stick of RAM.

I unplugged EVERYTHING that isn't essential, ethernet, usb, mic, hdds, etc.

Hit the power button, heard a beep. Then another beep ~5 seconds later, switched my monitor from my phone to my computer, and it posted! Red LED on the gpu isn't lit up anymore. I'm gonna try plugging things in one at a time and see if anything causes it to fail and will report back.

Thanks for the advice so far!

If you have a power supply tester I would test the power supply.It sounds like the PS is going bad to me.
