Question about Computers & Internet
I have a problem with my PC. (PackardBell Imedia 1314) When I switch it on, it starts the power up sequence (a click is heard, probably a relay). The on/off switch is illuminated Yellow, not Blue as normal. The fans start up. Then there is another click (relay again?) the same as before, the fans stop and the whole sequence starts again over and over. The cycle time is about half a second. The only way to stop it is to pull the plug out of the back or at the mains. Could you please tell me from this brief description what the most likely cause is? Thanks
Hi, you're not supposed to hear any clicks as there are no relays in a normal pc. I'd suggest try a different power supply, also try to see if it starts up when the hard drive is disconnected.
