A build for my wife, 4 months old and hardly used.
2 weeks ago, 6 random reboots, 2 at boot, 2 whilst browsing, 2 with the computer sat idle. NO BSOD just reboot and then OK.
CPU. Intel Q4800 Core2 Quad, 2.66 GHz, Noctua cooler.
Ram. Corsair Twin2x4096-C4DHX. PC-6400.
Video. Asus EAH 4830.
PSU. Antec TP. 550Watt.
OS. XP, SP3, fully updated Comodo, AVG, no unusual software.
Computer was not used for a week, went to start, no response at ail.
Checked, the wall socket, OK.
Lead to the PSU. OK.
Opened the case and tried a boot.
No beeps. No fans. No signal to the screen.
The only lights on the Mobo are for CPU load, so no way to see if there is power to the board.
Shorted out the power pins on the Mobo front panel header, no response so assume the case switch is OK.
Q. Even if I have a faulty component on the Mobe, Should the PSU, fan spin or I would get a beep?
Q. As I do not have access to a spare PSU, is there anything else I can try, before i start pulling the system apart?
Thanks for your time.
