Question about Computers & Internet
Computer will not start when power button is pressed but if u hold the test button and then press the power on button it will start and stay on.
what the problem?
Switching unit in powersupply sounds shot, if you want to test primary switching, un plug power from back, take main motherboard power socket off the board, take a paper clip and put it in the GREEN wire in the socket, and any BLACK wire, now (without touching the socket or having it touch anything else) plug power into the PSU, if the fans all fire up and spin, then the switching is fine, i would look at a fault on the board
