pc will not power up

By archieblackmon ·
When I press the power button, the red power led blinks and the fans spin for a split second then nothing. Pressing the power button again does nothing until I turn the power off to the pc. The the same thing happens. I replaced the power supply and get the same results.

Problem started when I was loading programs for my Canon camera from the cd that came with it. Message said pc would restart after installing program, but pc went off and never came back.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Problem with graphics card

by archieblackmon In reply to pc will not power up

Thanks, I think I finally found the problem (I think). It seems my graphics card is causing the problem. I removed all cards from the motherboard and it powered up. When I replace the video card the problem returns. Will replace video card today and hope that fixes it.
