So I installed the x700 myself. worked fine for a couple hours then it froze so i manually turned it off. i messed around in the case for a while and gave up. i tried turning on my computer a it suddenly started working again.

Today i was browsing the web and it shut off without warning. I tried turning it on again but nothing happened. it wouldnt even turn on.

i tried re installing the card physically and re-plugging in the wires to the power supply and the hard drive but still nothing.

i tried plugging in the power cable into a different power outlet. i seriously tried whatever i know at this point.

tried turning off psu with the switch on the back and turning it back on... the fans go on for about 1 second and then stops. it used to light up for a couple seconds (because my fan has a light), but it blinks now for less than a second.

when it happened i figured that the psu was hot and i touched it and it was quite hot, so i left it to sit for several hours and tried turning it on again and still nothing.

there are no warning beeps or anything else, it just simply wont turn on.

here are my specs

psu is 480watts and thats as far as i know right now.
p4 2.6

ati radeon x700 pro 256

ok i took out the battery on the motherboard and then put it back in...

if i hold the power button for a few seconds, let go, and then push it... everything flashes once but it doesnt turn on. could it be that my psu is dead?
