    how to make pc turn on?


    by gabrielchambers1080p ·


    one day i put my custom built pc (£500) on sleep for several hours and when i came back the pc would seem to turn on normally but the monitor, mouse and keyboard. After a while the pc would turn off as if it gave up. 2 months later i now have replaced the psu and case and its doing the exact same thing. Does anyone know whats going on here? some help would be much appreciated

      That depends on what’s wrong. gives tips.

      I wouldn’t be amazed if you have to replace the motherboard. Then you can reuse the case, the PSU, the SSD’s and HDD’s (although a fresh install of Windows is needed), the graphic card and the optical drive. Usually, a new motherboard includes new RAM and a new CPU.

      I assume the PC and its components are out of warranty already.

      In this day and age, it is usually much easier and cheaper to replace than try to repair computers unless they are still under warranty and are covered.

      If you’ve already replaced the PSU and case and are still facing the same issue, consider checking power connections, testing the monitor and peripherals, updating drivers, and monitoring temperatures. If the problem persists, professional help may be needed to diagnose and resolve the issue.
