You all have been a great help in the past, and I hoping you can direct me again..
This past December we upgraded the video card and power supply. It's been running like a dream....UNTIL today. My son said it just shut off with no notice. It wont turn back on.
When we try to turn it back on, the power doesn't even light up. HOWEVER, if I turn the PS off (switch on the PS), then back on, THEN try to hit that power button on the case it literally lights up for < 1 second, turns off, and nothing else happens.
We took of the side cover to see what happens, just to see if the fans are getting power. When we do the same steps as described above, the fan on the video card and processor turn on for that same , 1 second then goes dead- just like that light on the case.
I did check the connections and blew it out with some air...but nothing....
I'd like to think it's a faulty PS, but don't want to spend the money on that, only to find out it's something else...any insight would be greatly appreciated.
