Computer unable to boot suddenly. No hardware changes previously. 

Unplugged everything except power cable. 
Switched ram. 
Removed cmos battery. 
Unplugged most sata cables. 

Reseated CPU.
Still the same issue - blinking red light with flashing 00 error. Totally unable to start and no beep from mobo too. 

ALL fans spin slowly when started though. 

 

Any advice?

from the video I couldn't see anything. Tell us more about the pattern of the blinking as well as the specs of your computer. 9brand/model, motherboard, CPU, GPU, and make model and watts of your PSU.

1 blink per second (red lights)
I5 6600k
Msi z170a gaming m5
2 x 8gb g skill ddr4
Zotac gtx 1060
Seasonic 660W

This setup has run smoothly for a full year already. No hardware or software changes prior to its sudden death.

Did you try using the reset button? I'm sure you did but it wasn't mentioned. Try replacing the CMOS battery. If that doesn't work I'd test the voltage in your PSU. If you can boot into your bios you can check them there.

See this thread. Your MB does not have a Q-reset switch as far as I can tell from the manual. See page 41 of the manual. Reset your CMOS settings using the jumper/power is off. 

 

After resetting CMOS see if the computer boots. If not then use the Slow boot switch. Page 41. The computer will take a long time to boot but this may give you an ability to diagnose the problem.

Yes there's no Q switch. Have already removed cmos to reset bios. No luck.

Also tried slow boot option. Gives me same blinking light symptoms.

Any other advice?

My suggestion was to replace the CMOS battery not just remove it. There isn't much information out there about this motherboard and the blink codes. You mentioned that all fans start slow. How long before they shut off?

your video looks like the power supply is motorboating.

 

motorboating is a term we use in electronics when a device is trying to turn on but then detects an over voltage or excessive current draw and shuts itself off for protection, then tries to turn itself back on again.  and does this over and over again.

 

I would say it's time to replace your power supply.  if that doesn't fix it then it's your motherboard causing the motherboard causing the motorboating.

Ok I just replaced with another cooler master 620w psu, and also changed a new battery. Same issue. Frustrating that it's likely a mobo issue but can't pinpoint what leads to this problem.

One thing we haven't tried is test each stick of RAM be itself to rule out a faulty RAM chip.

OK, you said switched RAM but wasn't sure if you tested one stick at a time.
