So as the title says, sometimes my desktop won't POST. I turn the power on, the fans and lights work but then the screen stays black and no beeps at all.
This happened 2 years ago but it solved by himself, now it came back more annoying than ever...but when the pc finally starts, it works perfectly!
What i tried so far:
1- Unplug the power cord. press the power button to get rid of the static and wait for 30 seconds ( already waited for a lot more then that).
2- Tried to isolate the problem to a specific hardware piece by taking off the ram sticks and then the GPU.
3- Checked all the power connections to the motherboard.
4- Something more that i'm not recording now...
What did i find:
1- Took the GPU and Ram sticks off didn't help at all but if i remove power cable from the GPU it emits a continuous beep.
2- Sometimes i try to boot with only 1 Ram stick and it works, then i shutdown and put the second stick and it boots. But this is ONLY sometimes...
My desktop is 6 years old and his specs are:
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor
AMD Radeon HD 5800 Series
2x2GB DDR3 Corsair
Asus m4a79t deluxe
Note: I don't have extra hardware pieces to try and isolate the possible causer.
If you need any additional information, feel free to ask!
Thanks in advance for all your help.
