Might need to RMA my AX750

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so ill try and make this short.

Since half a year of having the AX750 in my rig, after i pressed the power button on my case, it would take about 10 seconds to actually power on... All would work as normal.

After that this effect worsened over time, I got to the point about after a year using it ( June this year) that i just would not get anything, The light was on on my motherboard, I would turn the case switch on and i could leave it for 6 hours.... Nothing, Light still on, Done things like turn off at the wall.

Now if i turned it off at the back of the PSU, this was a hit and miss that ill get it running back in june this year, sometimes it would turn on, and sometimes it will turn off, and i rarely turn my PC off btw.

Lately though since september this year, The only way i have been able to turn it on is to turn the PC power on, switch the back of the PSU off for 2 seconds and then switch the back on and then the PC starts, There really was no other way.

The other day i formatted my PC, if the PC turned off then ill have to do that "trick" when it powers on its fine (Btw it can restart, but not power off otherwise its not gonna start up again)

Turned my PC off for updates.... And i could do nothing to power it on, really, the lights would be lit, and everything was snug of course, but i could not power it on either way, tried the motherboard switch, all that stuff, even reset the cmos for whatever reason.

The only thing i can put it down to is my PSU, I have a spare XFX 850 Black edition (Silver rating, the older ones) and i tested that, once i first flicked the switch on that PSU the whole PC powered up, And i done some turn on and turn off tests, OMG IT ACTUALLY WORKS.

So yeah, Had that PSU for like about a year and a half, first "Problems" you could say started after half a year and this effect has just got worse over time, Wondering if im not missing anything here, And also my PC has never been abused, Never overclocked on GPU or CPU, never done anything to edit my hardware really, i just game, and ebay and stuff like that.

So yeah wondering if RMA is a option for the problems im having, i really cant see anything else that could cause this odd problem :/

Thanks for reading.

Yeah you should probably RMA it or ask for a replacement from manufacturer, I did this for my AX750 because of coil whine and ended up getting an AX760 which i was happy about and you might get lucky with to.

Try testing the PSU with another system if you can, because it could be the motherboard pis or the case power on button, especially because you said it restarts ok.

Good luck and i hope you solve your problem thumb.gif

If possible i will try, I doubt i can unplug the stuff in my old mans build, but if im correct hes away soon so i could try it.

But seeing as the power switch works fine with the XFX power supply installed, i find it very unlikely that its just the power button, its the first time in about a year i could freely switch on and off my system redface.gif
