so my computer hasnt been working for about a week. im pretty sure its the power supply, but i dont want to go buy one and find that that wasnt the problem.

right now when i press the power button everything either blinks (the fans, etc.) or nothing at all happens.

i really dont know how to reset the cmos or if it would even work, because my computer sometimes doesnt even turn on. could it also be the motherboard? or maybe just the power supply.

i have an intel d865perl mobo and 480 watt power supply. please :tazz:

So, from time to time, when you attempt to power on, the fans spin and LED's light up, but then turn off? And other times, nothing happens at all?

Can you list your components and the brand and how many amps are on the 12V Rail of your PSU (check the sticker on the side of the PSU).

To reset CMOS, you need to move the jumper on the CMOS reset pins of your motherboard. Check your motherboard manual. It is a simple task.
