Am having major probs booting up my PC. Basically it starts for like 3-4 seconds then dies, with no beeps. No software or hardware was installed prior to it having this problem. Have checked the graphics card & memory in another PC & both work ok. Have also tried another PSU but the problem still remains. Have reset CMOS, cleaned and applied new thermal paste to the CPU, but nothing. Have checked the MB to make sure it's not touching the case & it's not. The whole PC is less than 6 months old & frankly I'm stumped. If anyone has any ideas I'd be grateful.

No, it won't start at all. Fans etc start up then it just dies. Positive it's not the PSU or memory, I have tried them in another PC & they work fine. Am just wondering that it could be the MB, surely if there was a problem with the CPU it would at least beep.
