computer suddenly doesnt turn on

I turned on my computer today and it suddenly stopped turning on. I opened up the case to check cables, but they seem fine. When i push the power, the fans move for a sec and stop. I already tested the psu by paperclip test and it worked. Is there anything i can do before i rma the entire pc.?

  1. disconnect the power cable for a few mins, then reconnect it and try to boot. if that doesn't help you can try booting with no drives connected to motherboard, and also try removing all but 1 ram chips.

    what kind of system is this?

    ok i tried all that and did not boot

    my system is by cyber power 1337 gaming pc
    i7 3770k
    8gb ram
    b75m d3h,motherboard

  3. if u have another psu around, you could try that.
    or if there is a clear cmos jumper on the motherboard, try that as well

    thanks for your help!
    what do you mean by cmos jumper, im not very good at computers.
    also i dont have a spare psu
  5. Do you have a speaker connected to the motherboard? If so, any beep pattern when it shuts off?

    Then the likely culprit is the PSU and the less likely is the motherboard. I guess we wait until you get a new PSU to test further.

    But i thought the paperclip test could be used to check, also would checking it with a meter help?
    otherwise i may just RMA it, i just didnt want to wait a month :(
