Hey guys, I am having a problem with a computer when trying to turn it on. The power light comes on, but then starts flickering. All three fans inside the computer are running, and power is being sent to the USB outlets. However, the monitor is not connecting. Here is all of the parts in the computer:

 

Intel Core i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10GHz 3.10GHz Processor
Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. H61M-DS2 Motherboard
4.00GB Single-Channel DDR3 RAM
AMD Radeon HD 6670 Graphics Card
298GB Western Digital Hard-Drive
Cooler Master Extreme+ 500W Power Supply (will support up to a Radeon R9 270X gfx card).
Windows 7 64-bit

 

The computer has been moved around a bit, so could this just be a loose wire somewhere? The computer is custom built. Thanks.

Hello there,

 

Sounds like a power supply issue. Can you replace the power supply and see if that solves the issue? 

 

Keep us posted!

Do you mean the monitor light or the tower light?

If the computer has been moved I'm more inclined to believe there may be a simple connection problem.  Either the video card (if it has one) maybe came lose or a connection has come lose. Let us know.

I mean the tower light. I am hoping it is a simple connection problem. I tried to make sure everything was completely plugged in, but I was not very thorough. Ill go through it tonight and let you know the results.
