Hello,
i have a couple of suggestions you should try
1) check to see that the cables in back are plugged
2) if that does not work open up the pc and checked to see if the power connections inside are secured
the power supply is a gray block usually with a with a big cooling on it
check to see that the cables (usually red yellow and black) are secured into each component on your motherboard (the largest circuit board)
if not gently take the cable out (do not rock them out as you could damage a connection) and firmly attach them

if you have problem don't be afraid to post back

Won't start but CPU fan vibrates but will not go full blast. Intermittant


It appears you have a faulty CPU fan and it is causing the CPU to overheat and shut down.
I suggest you replace the CPU fan. remove any dust from the heatsink and put new heatsink compound on the CPU/heatsink.

One of two things a clogged up CPU fan and block may be the contributor over heated and possibly fried the board. The other issue may be a bad power supply unit, replace the unit and reboot. John
