PC Won't Start After Headphones Unplugged

I built my PC a year and a half ago and have had minimal problems.  After I built my PC the only problems I had was the 3.0 USB on the front of the case wouldn’t work even though I had hooked it up to the motherboard during instillation.  The other problem that became worse as time went on was that I would only hear out of my right headphone. I googled it and it said the connections were probably loose.  I checked the connections inside the PC and they were hard wired.  Even after re-attaching the side of the cables in the MB it didn’t fix my problem.

 

I thought I would just give the back story before I go into detail about what happened now. 

 

A week ago I disconnected my headphones from the front headphone port (the one that was giving me problems) and my PC shut off.  I tried to turn it back on and only saw the LED on the startup button on (no humming of fans or any signs of life inside my PC).  I opened up my PC and tried it again to see that my fans would start up for less than half a second before they stopped, but my LEDs would remain on.  I tried disconnecting every connection in my PC and reattaching them, but nothing fixed the problem.  My PC still won’t start up.

 

To me it seems like I have a short somewhere but there is no damage on my MB.  Help please :(

 

These are my parts:

Case: Cool Master Elite 431 Plus – Mid Tower Computer

MB: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3p AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 6xSATA 6gb

CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) S

GPU: ZOTAC ZT-90301-10M GeForce GTX 960 2GB 128-Bit DDR

PSU: Cool Master V650 – Compact 650W 80 PLUS Gold PSU

Ram: HyperX Savage 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133

 Have you tried plugging the headphones back in?  That would be the first thing I'd try.  Of course it does sound like you have a system problem somewhere.  To see if it's hardware or software, I'd boot from a live disc.  I use Linux Mint which you can download from here:

https://linuxmint.com/download_lmde.php .

 

 Good luck.


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

I tried plugging back in the headphones but that didn't work.  Can you explain what boosting from a live disc is? I don't own another PC just a laptop if that would be an issue.

 A live disc is one you can boot from like the Linux Mint I suggested & gave you the link to above.
