I really need some advice with this. I've built a custom PC couple weeks ago and just recently when I tried to power up, it shut itself down after a few seconds. Fans inside the case work (GPU, CPU and case fan) before it shuts down.
I've tried the following:
- boot only with CPU installed (even tried doing it outside the case), and with various levels of components installed
tested voltages on power supply with a multimeter (all were in normal intervals)
flash BIOS by removing battery for 1 minute
check power button cable for problems
I have tried everything I am capable of. Please, can you guide me towards which component may cause this issue, because I really don't know what else to do... Thank you!
Thank you onthelimit1. That is my guess as well, given that it worked for 2 weeks and then suddenly stopped working. No other component had any reason to fail, as I haven't overclocked anything and haven't moved the PC, so the only possible reason to me would be that the power source failed. It may be that I need a more performance oriented one.
