    also i did not press the power button and the fans are spinning etc!
  2. pleaseee help
  3. does the PWS have a switch on the back of it where you plug the cord into? other than the 115v / euro volt. if so switch it off.
  4. the only switch is on and off switch on the PSU.

    i dont understand why its doing it
  5. unplug the computer, wait 3-5 minutes. then proceed from there. There should be no residual charge left powering anything on the system after that.
  6. didnt work. i just tried it many times, i tried switching the gfx card just incase, didnt work. tried running with bare minimals (hdd, 1 ram, gfx card). tried switching round power SW cable, tried clearing cmos which appeared to do a lot (the fans were louder) but never did anything lol
  7. list your computer mobo make and model possible revision, cpu you are using, video card make and model, and anything else you have in the computer pls. So we can better diagnostically look what you have going on.
