Recently my computer stopped powering on at all. There was a storm that hit us and when I next saw my computer it was powered off and would not turn on. The other computers in the house were fine, so not sure if storm is cause.
When I try to turn my computer on nothing happens at all. If I turn the switch on the psu the green light on the front comes on for a mere second and nothing more.
So I figured the PSU was the issue. I bought a new one, it arrived and of course it exploded with a pop and smoke. The computer DID turn on using it, but only for a good 5-10 seconds before the PSU went out.
Using that, I knew it was a crap PSU and bought a Corsair one. It arrived today, I set it up annndd..nothing. Same green light happens. Except even less responsive than my first PSU.
Is it possible the PSU came DoA? Or maybe I just ruined my computer with the crap PSU? I have no idea anymore and it's pretty stressing.
If anyone has some advice towards this I will love you forever!
