560ti 2g OC
Seasonic X Series 1050W PSU
16GB RipJaw RAM
I gamed until 6 this morning, turned off my PC like normal, woke up at 10 to turn it on and this is what happens. Help?
You Hit Power, Fans Power up? Powersupply running, etc. Lights on Mobo etc on? Do you hear any BEEP when the computer is turned on?
As per crimson, there is a spot in your manual that explains what he beeps mean.
But we are going to do this the old fashioned way.
Unplug the PC, Reset your CMOS (should have jumper config listed in your manual if you dont already know it) Hold the Power button down for about 15-20 seconds while CMOS Clear Jumper is in proper position.
Reset the CMOS Clear Jumper position to the correct spot
Plug her back in and try turning it back on.
Here are my other things that i personally do when having any PC problem, I remove most of th hardware and reseat everything, the GPU's, Ram Etc. (not the CPU)
I usually do this before resetting CMOS just to be certain something hasnt come loose.
Hope this helps, its pretty much your only option.

Your 650 watt psu was plenty (with extra to spare), 1050 watts is completely overkill. I can walk you through all the math to prove to you that 650 watts was more than you need, but that's not point of this thread....
It's sounds like a problem POST-ing. Define "CPU turns on"? Do you have a POST code?
If you do not know about POST-ing you can read about it here --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power-on_self-test
. Your motherboards instruction manual will have directions on how to interpret POST codes.
Hmm, unless it was a particularly older Powersupply, but I agree the 1050 is sickeningly overkill, but welcome to OCN, thats how most roll.
