Specs: Windows 10, FX-8350 4.0/2x4gb
I turn on the PC no beeps or anything but my GPU runs for a few seconds then shuts off I tried reseating the GPU cleaning dust off re plugging it in and out.

"Logisys CS308RD ATX Mid Tower Case w/480W Power Supply"

There you go...cheap generic power supply. I found the case for $40. Generally a decent power supply costs that much.

You have a 125W CPU & a 90W graphics card which is roughly a 16-17A draw on the +12v rail. It appears your power supply has 16A on the +12v, but 36A on the +5v which would mean it's based on the old pre-Pentium4 ATX spec: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

I suggest you snag this Corsair 430W while it's still on sale: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...

Clean the ram/memory contacts & then try one stick at a time.

Clean the contacts with an pencil eraser & try it again. May need cleaning or reseating. If multi sticks, try just one stick to test. Touching an unpainted part of the case will dissipate any static electricity.

Did your system ever work properly? Have you made any hardware changes? Please list your specs in detail. My guess is your power supply is bad.

That's the way of most faults - one day they just come along.

When you are inside the computer make sure you clean the CPU heat sink, you can blow it out without removing the fan.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
