Hi all,

 

Today i was just browsing the web, watching some videos on youtube and suddenly my computer just turned off without any messages or anything else. Just poof and its off.

 

When i try to turn it on, it works for about a second or 2 and turns off again.

No strange smell out of it, no smoke or something.

Tried only to plug off every single wire and plug in again.

 

Oh and forgot to mention that, all the fans starts to spin when i turn the computer on.

If you want to see inside of it, i will record it and post here again.

 

Here is a video of it:

 

Im using: Windows 7 64bit

 

Here are the specs of it:

 

CPU - Intel Core i3-2130 3.4G 3M LGA1155 BOX

RAM - Nanya DDR3 Elixir 4gb (2x of this)

HDD - HDD SATA 1TB 7200RPM 3GB/S/32MB HITACHI

VGA - GTX 560 1GB

 The first thing I'd look for would be bad caps.  I assume there're no beeps since you didn't mention it.  How old is this computer?  Is it on a good surge protector?  Could possibly be a failed power supply.

`

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

If you have an IR (contactless) thermometer, point it at the CPU heatsink and see how hot it is... might be a thermal shutdown

Nope, no beeps, just turns on and immediatly turns off. Computer is like 3 years old, it was just standing on the table all those 3 years, yes its on a good surge protector.

And yes, i am also thinking that there is a problem with power supply because when i turn it on its just goes off.

Never actaully had any problem with temperature of it, and i suppose i should receive some warnings about high temperature or something and now nothing, just turned off and thats it. And if it would be because of high temperature, after some time it should turn on and work properly for some minutes but no matter how long it was off, when i try to turn it on same thing happens.

You won't always receive warnings, so download Hwmonitor and see what your temps are.

The problem is that i can't even turn it on. Im going to give it to a service center, lets see what they can find.. :)

Good luck with that... trying to find an honest PC service center these days is next to impossible, at least where I live.

Bad PSU or popped capacitors on the mobo is my guess.

Strange thing is that computer worked just FINE like 3 years, with no errors.. And now its just turned off. Im like 80% sure that its because of power supply, because when i plug it into electricity i hear a strange click. This started to happen when problem appeared.

Start a new topic. Although the problem may sound similar, I am willing to bet they are different.
