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
