I shut down the computer normally, no issues with it while running that I could see. A few hours later I went to turn it on and nothing happened. The motherboard standby and GPU power lights are on when plugged in, but nothing happens when the power button is pressed. No fans, no beeps, no reaction whatsoever. I had been using it for about eight hours a day for roughly a week prior, shutting it down at night and turning it on in the morning.
What's been tried to no result:
Bridging the gap between the pins of the power switch
Pressing the manual power button on the motherboard itself
Disconnecting the GPU to reduce load on PSU
CPU: [/size]AMD FD8320FRHKBOX FX-8320 FX-Series 8-Core[/size]
GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX 750Ti GDDR5 2GB[/size]
RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY 8GB Kit (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 CL10 DIMM[/size]
PSU: Corsair CX Series 600 Watt ATX/EPS[/size]

I've read that it's most likely the PSU or Motherboard but was hoping that the specifics of the issue might make it easier to narrow it down, or find other possible solutions before spending money on a new part. Thanks.[/size]
