Question about Computers & Internet
Please help. I have 2 weeks old machine with following problems: Nothing happens when power button is pushed, however if power plug is unpluged and then pluged back again it starts. Well it seems like it starts, but PSU works very loud and nothing happens - no system beep, screen is black and no reaction to anything except turn-off button. Some times it starts correctly. then it can work for about 30 min, and then PSU starts working very loud and couple of seconds later screen goes black and no reaction to anything.
Either the power supply needs replaced or there is a short on the board...
pull the mb and guts of the system out of the chassis
connect the power supply with one cpu and one stick of memory for testing.. no add-in cards installed
then test the power capabilities..
if the system works out of the chassis.. ( alot of work to do ...understood )then there is short to the chassis of the from the motherboard
i really think the power supply is the issue though
