    Default psu problem????

    ok this happened months ago one time and after i unplugged the comp and plugged it back in it worked fine up until today.

    ok last night everything worked fine until this morning i turned on my comp and all the fans go on and lights light up no beep and a couple of seconds later it shuts off, then a couple of seconds later it turns on and just repeats the on off thing. any suggestions? if it is power supply why kind should i get?

    here are my specs http://forums.mysuperpc.com/showthread.php?t=2265

    That looks pretty good, but kind of overkill considering your specs.

    Try the new PSU in your system and let us know if it works or not.

    Default psu

    yeah and to think i was going to get the coolmax 950 cause it was only $119 http://www.techaddicts.net/reviews/cug950/cug950.html

    anyways the psu worked when i put it in yesterday then today i tried to turn the comp on and same stuff goes on for a few seconds and shuts off. now when i first tried it this morning i did hear a single beep but nothing on the screen and all the lights were on on the motherboard. so i shut it off and tried again and it just tirned on then off and on and off. so i changed the cpu cooler same thing i disconnected the hard drive same thin i disconnected the dvd drive same thing. any suggestions? could it be the video card? killing something?

    Default Try the battery

    Sounds like a possible CMOS battery problem, try replacing it. I have a Dell and it had the same exact problem, replaced the battery and amazingly it's all better.

    Yeah, that's a good suggestion, and definitely worth a try.

    OK, this is just weird...

    Is the motherboard shorting out anywhere? Are any wires crossing that shouldn't be? Are all the power cables firm and secure including the 20/24-pin one to the motherboard and the 4-pin one for the CPU?

    4-pin one for the CPU? im not sure what your talking about. but nothing changed. i had it on e one night and the next day this happens and nothing has moved im the only one who uses this comp. another thing it is HOT IN MY LIVING ROOM where the comp is im almost certain that is the problem it might of burnt something out. what do you think? i mean im running out of solutions and i dont want to take it to the geek squad they charge 70 dollars to just look at it. maybe the only other thing is to take it all apart and put it back together again.
