My new build has been running fine for about 2-3 weeks now. I've been running with the sides off my case until this morning when I put them back on. All of a sudden, I get home from work and try to turn on my machine and I see some message about the machine shutting down in 15 seconds due to some problem. I keep turning my machine back on and the same message appears. I decide that maybe my PSU is overheating, so I turn off my PSU and give it some time to cool down (if you can follow my logic). I put the plug back into my PSU, flip the PSU power switch and now I get no juice to my motherboard. No LEDs are on. I tried to turn on my machine a number of times with no luck. I'm afraid my PSU might be dead.
Anyone have these issues before? Could any of my components be damaged?
try and jump your psu..i had a big problem with mine and this is how I figured out what the problem was. Take a paper clip and unwind it. Take your psu out and put one end of the paper clip into the green wired slot on the 20/24 mobo connector. (theres only one green one) and the other into any black connector. You wont get fried dont worry haha. Turn on the power and see if it starts up. Thats the first thing you should do.
