So this pc was built about 2 yrs ago. Recently (past month) it began to shut off a irregular intervals. At first it woudl shut off adn not come back on immediately when I hit the on sitch. It woudl turn on for maybe 2 secs. but not eeven beep adn then shut back off. So i woudl let it sit for a few minutes and turn it on with no problems. From there it would shut off in 1/2 hr or 5 hrs.
So I replaced the power supply. Thsi helped some but did not solve the problem. Now if it shuts off I can get it to come right back on, no waiting.
I also downloaded a mother board monitor b/c I dotn know how to get into BIOSto check temp. It was running around 66-72 degrees Celsius.
SO i decided I needed more fans (it only had the PS fan adn CPU fan. I put a fan to pull air in and a fan to suck it out. THsi lowered the temp tremedously, it si at a steady 47 Celsius. BUT it still shuts off!!
Now I bought a new CPU fan and hooked it up, but I couldnt get the pc to turn on with it installed so I put the old one back in. The old one was caked in dust so I vacuumed it off and put it back in.
I am at a loss and don twan to to spend $100/hr for some guy to come look at it and tell me it is a lost cause.
Please help! Oh yeah sorry for bein ga dumbass but please give me detailed directions. Thanks in advance!
