I usually keep my computer on but i decided to shut it off and left it alone for about an hour. Came back and it wouldn't turn back on, it just sat there dark and dead. Turned off the switch on the back of the PSU and turned it back on again, nothing. Unplugged the psu power cable and plugged it back in nothing. Opened the case and checked to see if my case connections were lose and they weren't. So i started checking the power connections to the MB, pulled out the 24 pin pulled out the 8 pin, plugged them back in. Computer turns on!! ***?
Think nothing of it, turn it off again, put the panels back push it into it's normal place, push the power button....nothing! Pull the psu cord out, take out the 8 pin put it back in and computer doesn't turn on.
Did the same thing, pulled the 24 pin this time, plugged it back in and bam computer is on. Turned it off, left it for a minute and it won't turn on. Pulled the 24 pin again and it goes on.
Do I need a new MB?
