I built my computer about 6 months ago and have had no issues at all. This morning I turned it on, it loaded past the BIOS but my monitor went blank before loading windows 7. After hard stopping the computer and turning it back on the power would turn on; however, the HDD is not being accessed, the BIOS isn't loading, no noises other than the sounds of the fans are heard, and there is no video output to the monitor. My initial assessment is leading me to believe either the MB or the CPU has kicked the bucket, but I have no idea how to test if they work?

Thoughts?!?!

MB: MSI 760GM-E51
CPU: AMD PH 2 X4 925 2.8G
PSU: Rosewell RD500-2DB 500 watt
HDD: Western Digital WD7501AALS

Your PSU has just up and died on you.

If it were the mobo or cpu you would still be able to get in to the BIOS and all the fan would be running.

drop in another psu and your pc will spring back to life.


that is if it didn't fry something before it died..

Agreed, sounds like a dead PSU.

Don't skimp on a new one, go for Corsair, Antec, or Seasonic.

Could be PSU or could be mobo. These things aren't usually that cut and dried. The fact that your fans are still running suggests that your PSU is not all the way dead. Maybe half dead, lol. Any dead is usually dead dead with a PSU.

I just lost a high end PSU about 2 months ago. Fortunatly for me it was easy to trouble shoot as it was completely dead.

I just had what I beleive was a bad processor kill two motherbaords in 2 days. It has had sketchy issues since about a week after I built it. The processorand everything else is only 2-3 months old. Could be bad voltage by just a hair I suppose, but my issues seem to have gotten worse, and yet stayed the same.

Gezz, I will be sooo kicking myself it it is a PSU issue. It is a brand new corsair 650 or 600, but they all make a lemon every now and then.
