My computer shuts down After 3 seconds.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My wifes computer that has been Running great for about 2 years has developed a serious problem that i can't figure out.

On thursday night after a night of gaming she shut it off for the night and on friday when she went to turn it on it would do nothing.

I unpluged it from the wall and plugged it back in and it came on for 3 seconds and shut down. the only way I can get it to do anything was to unplug it for 10 seconds and plug it back in. I cleared the Cmos and that didn't help any.

So I went through the steps of unplugging each stick of RAM and trying to power it on. and nothing. Took out the video card nothing, unhooked the HDD and DVDRW and still nothing. Took out the CPU and re-seated it with new paste and nothing.

I went out picked up a new power supply and changed it all out to only run into the same problem. I pulled out the mother board and inspected it and there is nothing that is jumping out and looking like a cap is burst or shorted out.

if anyone has a suggestion, I will give it a try.

With many thanks in advance.

Can you confirm that the CPU / Ram work using another system? Possible re-flow?

Possible overheating issue. Try this, apply a fresh coat of thermal grease and re-seat the HSF.
