PC won't turn on!

  • 22 months ago

I've had this PC for about 1 year, and was working normally this morning before I left the house. When I came back at night, I found that the PC was off. Tried turning on the PC and nothing happened. No Mobo lights, no fans, no post beep, etc. Tried replugging all wires to make sure nothing was loose, and repowering while removing/replugging one thing at a time, no luck. Is this a PSU problem? or a Mobo problem? I currently do not have a PSU tester right now also. My parts; PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Have you got a mate or someone that you could borrow a psu off?

I tried plugging in a old psu into my mobo, and nothing happened (the psu might've been under the required wattage however no lights showed up on my mobo).

Have you tried another wall socket and power board? Double checked all the connections into the motherboard and psu?

Does your motherboard light up without it being powered on, if not, check the front panel connectors are plugged in properly.

Yep, tested it with multiple wall sockets (even plugged a charger to check if it works). I double checked the first time if all cords were corrected, even took it completely apart and rewired everything. Also did it one by one to check if anything was the cause. Motherboard does not light up at all, and all panel connectors are connected properly.

When you tried the different psu, did you have a cpu cooler attached?

Nope, but i made sure not to have it running > 3 seconds

Im pretty sure some motherboards may not boot unless there is a cpu cooler plugged in.

Ah thats what you meant. I didn't try test running it with the cpu cooler plugged in but I'll give it a try. But generally speaking, when I did have it up and running; yes I did have a cpu cooler attached and plugged.

Yeah just a thought, sounds like a mobo problem though.
