Hello all first time poster here;
My custom 3 year old never had any problems until now, how lucky I've been! PC refuses to boot up. Lights and fans on CPU come on, webcam red powerlight on, but no monitor signal (like in standby mode) nor keyboard lights and no beeps. Hooked up monitor to laptop works as secondary. Removed and replaced after a minute CMOS battery. I am stumped, did try to read through as many postings as possible so I could save someone else the headache of responding to me. Thank you, Phil

Hi Philnger! Welcome to G2G!

Did you overclock your system? If you don't know what overclocking stands for, don't worry about it. :whistling: But if you did, you could of fried a number of things, from the video card to the processor, to the motherboard...

If you didn't overclock, then I would bet that your Power Supply (PSU) is bad. I suggest that you try a different one and see if it will boot up.

Thank you for your response Fenor;
No I have not overclocked this PC. I will try and find another 350watt power supply or 400 if available and I'll install tomorrow thanks for assistance. Before I change out I will take volt/amp readings and then after install do the same and compare.Thanks again, Phil.
