ok the other night before i went to bed i just turned my pc off without turning the psu switch off.
next morning i woke up and tried to turn my pc on, it turns on for 3-6 seconds without showing anything on the monitor then shuts off.when the pc is on everything is working led, fans etc but just doesnt boot i suspected it was the psu so i went to buy a psu 0cz stealthxtreme 700w to replace my coolermaster 650w. however the problem still there. i think its the cpu but im not too sure i dont want to go buy a new cpu and realize it wasnt the cpu like my psu.
i know some people had some success in booting their pc by constantly turning it on but i dont want to do that incase it damages the whole pc. i havent had a successful booting since that morning and now i have to go to the internet cafe.
oh and i havent tried to remove my cpu yet cos i dont know how to cant seem to find a removal guide online for my heatsink as i think its the first thing i should remove.
i am willing to call in a guy to repair my pc but they cost so much £80 per hour exc VAT? lmao i dont mind if that includes cpu replacement too. i only have £100 left to spend.
