My computer wasn't starting. The damned thing powered on for a second or two (I can hear the fans and HDD spinning up) but then it dies for a couple of seconds then powers up again and then dying again. From what I can tell from sound alone (nothing appears on my monitor), the computer isn't even loading BIOS. And if it is, it's not getting past the POST stages. I don't hear the tell-tale beep of a successful start up, only the thing dying then powering up again. Things I've tried:
- Removing any USB cables I had plugged in.
- Resetting CMOS via removing and replacing the battery.
None of those worked, it keeps on cycling on and off without passing POST. I should probably mention this happened before; removing the USB cables allowed me to boot properly before, where I then updated my motherboard's BIOS and never encountered the issue again until now.
- Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4-B3 Rev 1.1
- CPU: Intel i5-2500K
- PSU: Corsair GS600 600 Watt
- GPU: EVGA Nvidia GTX 460 SE
- RAM: 4x 2 GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1600
Anyone have any ideas? Anyone encountered similar issues?
(EDIT 1: After two people telling me not to hit my computer I edited out every mention of it. Note to self: Don't joke about hitting a $1000 computer on the internet, people will take you seriously.)
