PC restarting as soon as I power on.

By ButterOps ·
So I recently built my pc about 6 months ago and have had no issues until today.

GPU: GTX 1660 TI
RAM: CORSAIR 2-8GB sticks

My issue is when I turn on my computer now, everytime, it powers on for maybe 3 seconds and then immediately turns off and then turns on again. After restarting, it posts just like normal, but is considerably slower than before. The LED on my motherboard (EZ DEBUG LED) for my CPU stays lit until it powers off. I've tried reseating my CPU, my RAM and my GPU. Nothing worked. I've checked all connections and they're properly fitted. I've also reset my BIOS settings and nothing has worked. On the same day this started happening, I installed a new VPN to my computer as well as downloaded and installed the chipset driver from AMD's website. I've back tracked and uninstalled both apps and the problem persists. PLEASE HELP ME

I personally would be looking at a BIOS Setting being wrong.

But if you have overdriven the CPU through BIOS it may be damaged and not working properly.

But none the less start with the obvious reduce the system to just the M'Board, CPU and Cooler and 1 RAM Module and then try turning on and see if it posts properly. If it beeps listen carefully and look up the Beep Codes for your M'Board that will tell you what if anything is wrong and will give you a starting point to work from.

Also with the thing turned off and unplugged try pushing the Power Switch to discharge the capacitors in the Power Supply it could be a spike that has come in over the mains which has messed up the unit and until you remove all voltage from the system it remains. The recommendation is generally Turn Off, Unplug wait 30 seconds and then push the Power Switch and hold it in for 10 seconds sometimes it works.

Another thing to look for is with the unit unplugged shake the case and listen for any rattles it is possible a screw has got somewhere and is causing a short circuit or draining one of the Voltage Rails sufficiently enough to cause a problem.
