UPDATE :My computer is now not starting up at all.
There is a brief flash from the led fan, then nothing. I am guessing there is a short somewhere. So my question now is, could a short have been causing the problems im describing?
I made a build a few months ago. It was working fine until a random night when it stopped working in the middle of playing a file.
My computer is now not booting. I have replaced the motherboard through warranty and bought new ram and the computer still will not boot.
I have taken a video of the behavior of the computer. The video shows the constant restarting of the computer. It is also giving me an error saying that there is no memory present. As I previously mentioned, I bought new ram and the problem persists. (I state in the video that it may be the mobo but I took the vid before I replaced it. The system behaves the same way after I have replaced the mobo) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xGzCYvN_NQ
By process of elimination, the only 2 remaining culprits could be the CPU or the psu, correct? Does anyone have any insight into what the problem may be?
I'm also including the PCPARTS lister for my build.
It's the PSU fan that you're referring to.
The CPU (processor) fan should spin when starting the board. And if it does spin, then most probably it's not a power supply issue, since the processor gets power, but a CPU one.
Of course, it's just a guess.
