My friend computer turns off 3-5 seconds need help

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
My friend is having a strange problem and even myself can’t really determine what’s the problem.

When she turns the computer on, it only runs for about 3-5 seconds. She also bought a new PSU, RAM, and a new motherboard. None of this fixed her problem. The only parts she is still using are the CPU cooler (dark knight) and the Q9550. I heard the CPU dying was rare, so what could it be?

Thank you in advance.

Does it get past POST? Are you positive everything is plugged in properly?

Do you hear it boot up? As in do you hear the fans start to blow and everything? You're sure that the monitor works? Does the monitor just stay in standby or at lease attempt to turn on?

What power supply did she get? Sounds like a PSU issue to me. Do you have a spare PSU she can try swapping in?

I would say check the RAM, pull it out, check for the POST beeps saying no RAM and try and boot with one. I've had similar issues minus the turning off after 3-5 seconds...

Has she tried using different power outlets? Is she using a power strip? Does she have a graphics card or is she using an integrated solution?

Yes I hear the fans blow, yes the monitor seems to be working but stays orange so i guess stays in stand by.

Clear CMOS? its pretty rare for the CPU to actually die, but it dose happen. What are the other specs in the RIG. Lastly. check the backplate of the CPU cooler, is it shorting out anything?
