What's the problem?

I just replaced my motherboard because the old ones usb 3.0 ports stopped working. Now my Pc turns on then off immediately when I try to turn it on, when holding power button it does this a few times then stops. Already tried taking one ram stick out (did this with both) and swapping ram slots and I also tried taking out the battery on the mobo for a bit then putting it back in. Gpu light is on so may not be gpu. Suspecting a psu problem. Can anyone tell me what the problem is and what I can do to fix it/what do I replace?

Old mobo: GA-78LMT-USB3 New mobo: GA-970A-DS3P Gpu: gtx 960 Cpu: amd fx-8350 Cpu cooler: corsair 120mm water cooling Ram: 2x 4gb gskill ripjaws x Psu: Cougar SL 600

Was a prebuilt pc btw

You have a gigabyte motherboard? I have one too, and it does the same thing when something isn't working. (RAM, CPU, etc).

Yes I do, and if that's the case then I give up, I'm not spending hours plugging and unplugging every part of my pc lmao. I'll just bring it somewhere to someone to look at it

Wait before you do, simplist trouble shooting steps:

Did you make sure to plug in the 4+4 pin EPS (cpu power) connector (into the motherboard)?

Sometimes AMD builds take a couple mins with a new motherboard for it to figure out what in the hell is going on, give it 5 mins to boot up, then start worrying.

Try those, let me know how it goes.
