After working fine for near enough 1 year, my self build computer SDD corrupt and damaged the system image. I ended up having to do a complete re-install which allowed me to log in and such. I then left the machine switched off for the past week (I was at home, computer is at work).
Having returned back to work I went to switch my computer on, it does so, for about 3 seconds and then switches off.
Now I've tested a secondary PSU with no change, tested the system with 1 stick of memory, CPU and GPU attached (nothing else) with no change, now I'm struggling..
Would my next step be to test the more pricier of components with new ones? or simply send back what I suspect may at fault (under warranty)?
