pc doesnt start - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
I didnt change a thing. I have this rig for about 2 years with the hardware on the sig.

The psu as a self test button and supposedly if the light turns green everything is good and the light is in fact green.

Also the capacitors on the mobo look good, they are not "swollen".

From aida64 temps and voltages are fine.

Im pulling out the motherboard from the case to see if the short comes form some contact with the case and also checking cables. I will post results as soon as possible.

Thank you very much for support thumb.gif

Once again I'm not an expert but I doubt you can rule out the motherboard beeing defective just by looking at the capacitors (not saying this is what you implied but just to make sure), also be sure to take off as many parts as you can in order to rule out non-defective ones quickly, it could save you a lot of time.

Good luck smile.gif

edit : also have a look around to see if the PSU's self check really is trustworthy, you never know.

Possible you could have gotten low quality cables that burnt out. I had that happen with my OCZ Z-series. BTW what is a CPU disks cable?

sorry I explained myself badly. the cables are the same, i changed the cables from the psu ports that i was using to ports that were free...

but 2min ago my pc shuted down suddently and problem was back... this time i removed the graphic card power cable from the psu and then reinstall them and it is working again so i think i can safely say that this is a problem with the graphic card or the psu or just the connection...
what do you say?

i am changing cables and lets see what happens

RMA/replace the PSU. It sounds like something might be loose internally.

I'm having a feeling this issue may happen to you again. If it does. I strongly reccomend following the above post.


Its very unlikely it would be the graphics card, its very likely to be the power supply at fault.

At this point, I'm agreeing with you on that, sounds like PSU.

I've looked at a few pc's where I just had to take out ram and put it back in to solve no-boot scenarios. Only thing I can think of is some dust worked its way into the slots and created a bad connection. But from what you describe, its sounding like PSU issue.

It is a PSU issue at this point. If it isnt the motherboard, its the PSU. RMA that thing.
