  1. Memory could be the issue. Or CPU. Or mobo.

    I doubt its the CPU as those are hard to kill. So either the mobo (most likley) or memory was fried during the time the PSU blew.

    ive checked the RAM it runs perfectly...in another PC....so r u sure dat CPU isnt damaged...coz i lovd it
  3. As he said, it could be a number of things. It could be the motherboard as well. There's not an easy way to test, except by putting your components (CPU, RAM, GPU) into another board and firing it up.
  4. When psu's blow up they have a nasty habit of damaging other components.
    Looks to be the case here.
  5. When my PSU blew it took my motherboard with it. Which may be what happened in your case.
  6. Id be willing to bet 50 bucks that its the cpu got shorted out ... i had the same issue once with 1090t after returning the mother board as a possible cause and elimnating all other issues i found that it was a dead 1090t that lasted oh id say 2 days or so then it either burned up or shorted out .. needless to say i would sugjest buying your cpu from amazon they have probobly one of the best return policys that i know of .. they sent me a new one in 2nd day air .. and even sent it out before i sent back the old processor. just saying it was a great exspirience. although i was very sad about the processor taking a dump on me ..
  7. Did you plug the power connector(s) required to run your videocard into the psu?
    Is it seated correctly, just throwing some ideas out there.

    Is there any beeps when it start it up, continuous, multiple anything?
  8. got it guyz t ws da mobo....got it replaced 4 anew 1........... :D
  9. Happy to hear that you've solved it and are back up and running.
