Some days ago, my computer suddenly shut down and it won't turn on anymore. I'm trying to determine what caused this, but my knowledge of hardware only goes so far, and I can't see any damage on the components with just my eyes (and even then, I'm not an expert, so take this with a grain of salt!).
If anyone could help me figure out what's wrong with it, I'd be extremely grateful. Here's some things about what happened:
-These are the specs of my computer, although they don't include my power unit, which is what I suspect being the issue. I'm not sure about the specifics of my power unit but I can easily read whatever's written on it if needed.
-When I try to turn the power on, there is no sound or beeping whatsoever. Nothing wil turn on, not even fans. Literally nothing happens.
-The mouse and keyboard lights are off.
-It's not a power outlet problem, I have tested this several times.
-It's probably not a power button problem, since the computer shut down abruptly while in use.
-There is a green LED on the GPU that is constantly on. (Does this mean power is being supplied? I have been told it's possible for this to happen even if the power unit is busted.)
-The computer shut down suddenly while I was playing a certain videogame at maximum settings. There was no performance drop whatsoever in the moments right before the shutdown. My PC's components met the requirements for this, save for having 0.10 GhZ less than recommended apparently. I had been playing like that for less than a couple of weeks.
-Right after it shut down, the power unit/cpu area was relatively hot to the touch, but not alarmingly so in my opinion.
-The computer is about 1 year old.
-I know there's tools to test wether the power unit is working or not, but I don't have them right now and it's not easy for me to get them right now. Before buying anything or having my computer checked by a professional, I would like to see what I can do on my own first at least to determine which part of the computer is broken. (I have had experience with assembling computers, so I know the basics and the dos and don'ts of dealing with hardware)
Here's hoping it's not the CPU or the Mobo...
Thanks in advance!
