My new build which i built last week has been working fine up until now. I tried turning it on and the front power led was on. The PSU fan started spinning but then the computer just shut off itself. A few seconds later it tried to power up again but the same thing happened.
I then turned off my PSU and am now on here. Can someone please give me some advice as to what I can do to diagnose/fix the problem? Any help would be much appreciated.
Have you checked the power button and reset button headers on the motherboard? Make sure they connected properly.
I had a similar issue with my new build. In my case the header wires were loose where they connect to the cases power button.
I've just checked that but the same thing is happening, do you think it may be the computer shutting itself off to stop the cpu overheating? Could it be something to do with thermal paste? If anyone can link me to a list o work through that would he very helpful.
