I can't edit the slightly misleading title after this was posted, sorry :(
Built 2-3 months ago, no initial issues
I moved this computer to my house in order to solve an unrelated software issue. To move it back, I and turned the PSU to its off / "0" position. I strapped it down for a 15 minute car ride back to where the computer usually is kept.
There, I made sure all cables were plugged in, but the computer just wouldn't power on again when I pressed the power button. The accent lights on the motherboard seemed to turn on for only 1 second when I plugged in a USB device. After about 5 attempts, the computer would power on normally, but unplugging any USB device/HDMI etc would cause it to suddenly turn off again.
The computer still takes multiple attempts on different power outlets to turn on, but I'm quite sure its not a problem with the outlets (the monitor and other electronics work fine). The 'finnicky USB' problem still happens occasionally.
I bought the motherboard used, could it be because the CMOS is dead? PSU is brand new
