|So one day before I left for school I checked something on my PC and turned the monitor off, a few hours I came back and noticed the computer had shut down.|
Tried turning it on, didn't turn on, flicked the switch behind the PSU on/off, still didn't turn on. Then noticed the Green LED light on the Mobo wasn't on.
I installed a 500w PSU a few months(6-7 maybe) ago because of a failing one I had on this PC a year ago(was a 350w). It's been working flawlessly since now. I think?
The thing is, I'm not sure whether it's the PSU or the mobo that's gone this time. The weird thing is, that when my previous 350w PSU died, the Green LED light on my mobo was on, unlike now.
I really think it's my mobo, but I'd like some clarification. Is there any way I can test out my PSU or mobo to see which one is dead/fried?
BTW, I haven't tried to remove anything from my computer since I installed my 500w PSU.
Thanks for any help.
My PC specs:
Asus A8V-E SE motherboard
2GB DDR RAM
500 Watt Antec Powersupply
