Pc Shuts off after about 30 seconds from turning it on.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
This is a friend of mines pc and when he presses the power button everything starts up he can choose bios or to start windows and after about 30 seconds to a minute of turning on the pc it shuts off. It will shut off while in UEFI or while loading windows. I've tried telling him to boot up in safe mode, pulling the ram sticks and testing them one at a time, pulling the graphics card, and clearing the Cmos, checking all connections on his mobo, and making sure all his fans spin and the problem still persists. I'm starting to think it's the CPU or Mobo.

Edit: There is no blue screens and the mobo beep is exactly the same since he's gotten it. No extra beeps or anything.

CPU: 2500k
mobo: p67a-g43

Try booting into a disk. Put a disk in the drive, and make sure the boot order is set to boot from the cd/dvd drive first.

Also, I've had this happen when power supplies start going out/overheating. Check to make sure the PSU fan is turning on with the computer, and check for an odd smell from the PSU. If the fan comes on, and there is no smell, it could still be the PSU acting up. If you have another one of similar or higher power, try that one out.

Yeah I've eliminated everything except MOBO, CPU, PSU. It sounds like a PSU problem to be honest. I haven't been able to actually see the computer but I'm helping him over the phone / vent. He says that the PSU fan is in fact spinning. I will ask him if he smells anything coming from the PSU. I have been looking into a PSU tester (This one to be exact - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16899705003) and that may help find the problem. Just to add things we've tried I also had him plug the reset button into the power button slot on the Mobo and then try turning it on with the reset switch and the problem still occurs. I will post back when I get more info.

Does his PSU have a voltage switch on it? I bumped mine over one time and it took me forever to figure out what in the world was going on. lol

Also, have him look at and feel all the wires coming from the PSU for any cuts or anywhere the plastic may have come off. Have him look around in the case for anywhere a wire may have been pinched or rubbed on a sharp edge, got caught in a fan, etc.

Alright thank you for the suggestions. He's going to bring it to my house tomorrow so I can take a look at it. He doesn't really know much about computers so telling him what to do over the phone is tough. I'll let you know what I find. Hopefully it's something stupid and easy to fix.

Hopefully it is. Sadly it's a gamble, though.

Good luck.

Sounds like a heat issue. Temperature protection is kicking in after 30s of some component and shutting the system down.

Disconnect the power button. I know it sounds stupid, but sometimes the button gets stuck the PC thinks you are holding it down. Disconnect it and start the PC by shorting the two pins that the button was connected to with a flat-head screwdriver.
