  1. What kind of computer?
  2. i forgot what the name of computer. actually it's my uncle computer.
    im suspect that the motherboard was getting bad but maybe not because when i turn it on the POST was still appear.
  3. how do i know if either motherboard is bad or power supply??
  4. The 'typical' signs of a bad PSU are sudden shutdowns as Windows is loading, running intensive Apps or Games (raising load), or erratic behavior.

    Problem, that often can mimic a bad MOBO -- the tell tail is the load. Unfortunately, the only way of knowing is to try a new and adequately sized PSU. If this is an older PC and you added 'stuff' e.g. new GPU then quite often it's the PSU, as a PSU get older it can loose 20%~30% of its' capacity.

    Worst, a failing PSU can cause damage to the other components e.g. MOBO, RAM, CPU, GPU, etc...

    wow. thanks for the useful info actually my uncle's computer is older and old model.
    he said its almost 3 or 4 years old his computer. its my first time to encounter that computers problem. actually im familliar of computer and i do troubleshooting because my course is comptech. but this case i cant figure out whats going on i had one day already trying to fix my uncle's computer.

    when i turn it ON during the POST the things that appears is usb controller and press F11 the rest was not appear meaning the rest was not detect during the POST and its only stop there after pressing F11 its turn off and appear "NO SIGNAL"
    and the button light of monitor was orange.
    my suspect is the motherboard, RAM and PSU.
