Unfortunately, the same problem occurred, an immediate shut down but no reboot since I turned the option off. I had previously checked all of the cables to see if anything was unplugged but I figured I would do it again since the computer was already off. Again,every thing was in the right place so I tried booting up the computer and nothing. Every now and then after flipping the PSU switch a few times, pressing the power button would make the LED power light up for a second and then nothing.
Opening up the case showed me that when the above happened, the fans would kick on for a second as well and then stop. So I took out the CMOS battery for a few minutes, popped it back in and it booted up. I chose the default settings for the CMOS/BIOS values, got to my desktop and it rebooted. Everything went smooth on the reboot but I'm wondering if my CMOS battery is going or possibly something else?
My system specs:
- e8400 @ stock 3ghz
- EVGA 8800gt
- 2gb RAM @ 800mhz Corsair CM2X (1gb/stick)
- GIGABYTE P35-DS3L
- VX550W Corsair PSU
Thanks for any help/advice
