Hey guys,

Working on my pc, press the power button to turn it on and bam. The systemm lights everything up for less than a second and then shuts down. The weird thing is the power button led was still on. No matter how many times you press it nothing happened.

Now my problem is simple, whenever I try to turn my pc on the led's light up, shutoff, but the power button led stays on. And no the os doesnt load when i do that.

I took off the side window that has the side fan off of the case tried to turn it on. Everything works fine, led's on system boots. Everything. Then i put the case window back on secure it into place and tip my computer back upright, and bam shutoff. power button is left on.

Ive checked all powere connections in and out of the case, practiaclly rebuilt it still same problem. Im running out of ideas. `

Edit: Alright, got the computer on...... But no sound. Ive rebooted, checked connections inside and out, and reinstalled audio drivers......no luck.

Any suggestions?

Try putting the side panel on without plugging in the fan.
Have you blew the dust from the power supply lately?
Check and make sure the 20 pin connector is plugged in good.
Sounds like a power supply problem.

I think you should be alright have seen several do this and just reinstalled a new PS and everything was fine. But you know what they say: There is a first for everything. :thumbsup:
