While not ideal you have at least resolved the issue and thank you for letting us know that it was the PSU  :thumbsup:

 

The reason why I asked about the brand and model of PSU is because they can cause all sorts of problem and the cheaper the brand the worse and more likely the problems will be, your previous PSU brand B-MOVE as I mentioned in my reply #6 was not the best of quality and you have done right to replace it, my canned explanation below as to why folk may think that their PSU is ok when it is not and the consequences of not replacing a flaky PSU;

 

As a PSU puts out various voltages +3.3V, +5V and +12V it may appear that the PSU is working correctly but it is not, any significant drop of any output can prevent the system from booting up, the other scenario is a significant increase in the output which can be worse as it can fry one or more major components such as the MB, CPU, Ram, add on video card etc.
