Replace the Power Supply

by TheChas In reply to no power light

I recommend a new power supply.

As part of the start up sequence, the motherboard returns a power good signal to the power supply. If the power good signal is not received by the power supply after a few seconds, the power supply shuts down to protect the rest of the system.

If it is not the power supply, the next suspect would be the motherboard itself.

and do it before the power supply starts fluctuating power thru the circuits which could cause more damage. Happened to me recently 3 times with different work machines. Bruce
