Figures... start up problems

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Alright, so I'm sitting there, watching an episode of Scrubs on my PC, when I glance over at it, and decide, "Hey. I don't like my wires. I'm gonna fix 'em." So, I tear down my setup, drag my PC to the middle of the room, take off my socks, and start at it. I take everything apart, and do a decent job of organizing my wires. So, after everything is put back together, I haul my Armor back onto my desk, and plug it back in. Motherboard LEDs light up, so I hit the power button, the lights light, the fans spin, and then... they stop. Lights go out. Motherboard LEDs are still on, but nothing happens. And if I push the power button again, nothing at all happens. I've double checked my connections, and unplugged everything and plugged it back in. No luck. I suspect that the motherboard is grounding with the case, but I'm not a fan of the idea of tearing everything apart again, and besides, I didn't move the motherboard, just unplugged everything except the CPU and the motherboard is still getting power.


Anyone have any ideas?

There's not even time for it to check the CMOS... the fans are just on for a split second. I'll give it a try, but I doubt it.

Try starting your computer without the HDD,Floppy, and DVD/CD drives plug into both the Mobo and PSU. Tell me if anything acts different.

I had almost this exact problem with my old build, no idea why..

2x 7800GTX and a FX57 fried. Luckily, RMAs were accepted. (My most wierd computer experience ever!)

I would try unplugging everything, and replugging it back it. Maybe theres a cable that is loose.

Sadly, the best thing to do here is to completely "unbuild" your machine and give it a fresh build. It does sound like something is not properly grounded. I've had this happen to me several times. Pull the PSU out and make sure that it didn't somehow get shorted (refer to this FAQ on how to do that). Pull the CPU from the socket as well. I've seen that as the culprit before somehow. While you have everything dissassembled, you might as well pull the CMOS battery out as well. After that reassemble the machine with only mobo (with battery back in), chip, memory, vid card, and boot HD and see if that boots up. If it does, then gradually put everything else back in.

The last time I had the "Push power button, PC turns on and then off, then PC will not turn on", it was my PSU's fault. If it doesn't turn on again after it turned off, unplug your PSU wire for 10-20 seconds and plug it back in.

This sounds like a short circuit or something.

I had this problem in an old rig.
