Having a bit of a problem this morning with my PC,
usually before I end the day instead of turning off my computer I would set it to sleep, and I did the same last night. How ever this morning when I tried to turn on my PC the Fans sounded like they were running on over drive (heavy sounding) I left it like this for a while and still, but my OP or Bios did not load up at all, just a blank black screen.
Im using a 650 power supply (fairly old), duel 3.2 processor, 6g ram, nVidia Gforce 240 graphics, asus P5Q3 Motherboard and 1t hard drive running Windows 7.
open to any suggestions, a few mates I have explained the problem to think my power supply could be dead, but before i got testing, removing or replacing things I just wanted another opinion.
Cant do a cold boot because the computer just wont start at all... there is no lights indicating the mother board has power ether.
as for my current power supply i have a 650v coolmaster ATX12V. (2-3 years old)
i have tried putting a spare power supply in the computer which was a
SeaSonic S12II 620W 80+ PSU and still no response from the computer
okay so it seams now with the spare power supply the there is a light indicating the mother board has power... but sadly still not turning on... could it be the actual power button? perhaps not making connection?
