Pc stopped working

February 16, 2009 at 16:47:27
Specs: Windows XP, P4
My pc stopped woring all of a sudden and it wasn't even that it was on when it stopped working I went to turn it on and it just wouldnt go. There were some power outages but again pc was off at the time.

I checked the power supply with a teste and it works fine even the lcd display on the tower turns on whenthe power supply is hooked up to the tester.

To be safe i changed it anyway still nothing.
I had a spare CPU and still nothing

Oh the tester checks the 20/24 as well a the cpu 4pin connector

i switched out ram and nothing but even if thats the issue it should still turn on with beep codes.

The only one thing i did notice is that if i it the off switch on the power supply and then wait a while and turn it back on the power supply fan and cpu fan turn 2 or 3 times and turs right back off (power supply switch sepreate from tower switch)

Even though the power indicator light on the motherboard is on is it possible i need a new one or could it be the contact between the tower and the board?

Did you use one of these to test your PSU?


If your tester doesn't display amperages, it's pretty much useless.
