Hello, can some one please help me , when i press the power on button it just lights up with no hdd thinking turns it self off after 5 seconds , now i am thinking it is the power suply because the fan is not spinning but every thing like the video card fan and cpu fan are spinning so i was also thinking that its over heating because of the thermal goo could be dried up ? ? my specs are gigabyte mobo 1.5Gb Ram 1Gb Gigabyte Graphics card and a standard 3.2 Mhz cpu nothing fancy but was working fine till i pulled the power out of the PSU one night to switch it off after it froze . . any advice would be much appreciated via here or e-mail email@example.com
It sounds like the problem i had on a old computer. I had warranty on that so i left it in for a free repair. The guys in the store said that the PSU was "burned" wich meant that the Watt was too low for my build.
This problem occured when i was a newbie on this and just placed in a better GPU without knowing that it required a better PSU then the one i had.
btw "standard 3.2 Mhz cpu" that would suck i bet you mean GHz
