Help with troubleshooting dead machine

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I had to ship my PC to a new place and after opening it and hooking it up, it does not turn on. When I turn on the power, it turns on and off repeatedly forever. I tried disconnecting most peripherals but still same issue. I also breadboarded the mobo but still same issue. What I found is, after I connect the 8 pin power connector to the mobo, that is when it turns on and off. If I disconnect the 8 pin power from the mobo, machine turns on and stays on.

My question is: Is this a power supply issue or a mobo issue?

My build is the AMD one found in my sig below. Any help would be appreciated smile.gif

Sounds like PSU. Do you have a spare to try?

Definitely sounds like a PSU issue, if you have another PSU or MoBo to test you would know for sure. Could always test the PSU but that can be a hassle. Honestly though, PSU.
