I then tried to play games on the computer (Starcraft 2) and within several seconds the display and sound crashed, power was still running as the led and fans were still on. I restarted the computer and tried another game (Crysis) and again the crash occurred, however this time power completely shut off.
I have since been unable to turn on the computer. I have removed all non-essential components (graphics card, sound card etc.) but the system will not turn on. There is power going into the motherboard as the motherboards power and reset switches light up but the computer will not turn on. I have checked that all system panel connector cables, power cables etc. are installed correctly.
It seems to me that some component in the motherboard (fuse maybe) is gone as it will no longer turn on or even power the fans. I have also checked that the graphics card is functioning.
Anyone thinks it could be a hardware problem (and if so which component) or something I did wrong in the build ?
Any input would be appreciated, Thanks.
