So i was watching netflix and suddenly my screen went black. The monitor acted as if the computer was going to sleep but the pc was still on. Before i hard booted it i checked to make sure all the exterior cables (to the monitor) were seated properly. After i shut it down manually it will no longer turn on. It will turn on for a split second but immediately turns back off. No beep, just the lights inside the chassis and the fans are on so briefly that they dont even complete a rotation.
I built this rig about 3 years ago. I reseated all internal cables including the ones running from the pwr button to the mobo and the psu to the mobo. I placed the video card in the other slot and changed sata cables around. All this lead to the same result.
Remember i built this 3yrs ago so i may not know exact models but i know brands.
Nvidea gtx 9800 video card
Antec power supply
Primary hdd WD caviar black 500GB
Back up WD caviar green 750GB
I know its not the hdds but i cant eliminate the possibility that its not any or all of the other 3.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Update: now it doesnt even turn on for a split second. Just dead. If it was solely the power supply i would think that it would shut the computer off originally and not waited for me to manually shut down. I just dont want to order a new power supply and it not be the solution.
Thanks again for any assistance.
