computer start up problem...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i come home from a long says work, and all i want to do is check my email... computer wont turn on...

Im not a computer buff... but my first thoughts where power outage in my basement... dint happen.. everything else on my power stip worked fine... Then I thought maybe it was a bad stick of memory.. I tried all possible combinations.. I have 2x1Gb corsair XMS... fairly new.. so i doubt that it is the memory and having both go out at the same time..

Hes the big problem.. When i turn off the powersupply.. then turn it back on and try to start up the computer, i get a very quick 1/2 second burst of fan movement and start up light.. but then nothing... is that a powersupply issue? Im not sure what else to try, so untill i can get this figured out im using someone elses computer.. and witht he build i have for my computer i should be worrying about this for quite some time... but stuff happens... any ideas thoughts.. or if im posted in the wrong place.. a point in the right direction to post for people to read...
thanks

I think you solveed your own problem
Sounds like PS to me, one way to know for sure is to disconnect all prepherials and then take the 20/4 pin main power connector and get a paper clip and jump the green wire with any of the black wires, if it still only turns on for a quick second thn that's your problem
