Ok, heres one for you. About a week ago my pc abruptly shutdown, I initially thought we had a power cut (we didn't) while browsing the web. Since then after that my pc wont boot, fans turn, no power button light (nothing), no beep codes. Tried the removing components and booting and nothing (fans spin, no light on power button), HDD's (2) move, took out and put back in cmos button. Cpu does not heat up (at all). This and no power button light from what I read on other forum posts on other websites led me to getting a new motherboard assuming it was that, based on replies to a post I saw that had very similar issues to mine. That didn't work, still same issue. Motherboard I bought came with cpu, switched cpu and same result. With no beep codes, removing components and booting with nothing, and fans spinning, I am lost as to what it is.
So what, just plug all the stuff in without anything usbs?, how would I check if it is a damaged usb port, or navigate around it until something can be done about it. (if it was a damaged usb port, then I would assume switching to the newly bought motherboard would have corrected that).
Hi. Ok, it was the psu. I had a spare one that was given to me for another pc, but since someone mentioned it, I tried it out, and it worked. Booted back up. I may get another psu for this as this one has a lower output then the stock one and would like to remain with the performance I had.
