My computer started freezing up every once in awhile a few days ago and to recover from a freeze up I had no choice but to unplug it from the wall and reboot. Well as annoying as that was at least I could still use the computer sort of. Well as of last night when I plugged it in nothing turned on... So this morning I opened it up to see what I could do. I figured the problem had to either be the Power supply or the Motherboard. When I supply power to the computer there is a little green light on the motherboard that comes on and the fans turn on for about a second then go off again. So I started reading some threads on this forum and tried disconnecting all devices and cards from the motherboard. The problem persists. Then after reconnecting all items I disconnected the 20 pin connector that comes from the power supply to the motherboard and I jumped out the green wire to a black wire and my computer booted up with this 20 pin connector still disconnected. If I remove the jumper or reconnect the 20 pin connector I still have the same problem.
Any help would be appreciated much.
I realize you may need more info on my system in order to help but I wasn't sure what info was needed.
