Weird problem with PC


Recommended Posts

Yes, it could be the PSU but it could also be other hardware failure or related issues (including bad video drivers or RAM) or software/file corruption etc. issues. Unfortunately it's one of those "could be a whole lot of things" symptoms. Is there an error message at all, even if there's no time for you to read it? Could it be something as silly as, say, a too loose/wiggly power cord/outlet?


If it keeps happening, the PSU's one of the easiest thing to try first to see if that fixes things -especially if it's an aging one anyway- before spending hours tweaking other stuff. Or take it to a shop.

There's no peeping, no warnings, no bluescreens whatsoever.


I want to note that once the PC boots, he runs super stable. I can play games, everything. It's not a heating problem because the temperatures are okay.


This only happened today because yesterday before I went to sleep, I switched off the PSU (which I normally never do), so probably had something to do with the ELKOs.


I just switched the PC off, waited, and turned in on, and voila, it worked.


It could be also something to do with the motherboard. I searched a lot and it's probably either PSU ELCO or Motherboard ELCO. Damn, need to figure this out.


Maybe I should open the PC and look for damages, but I'm not smelling a damaged condensator.

he runs super stable



Just what kind of relationship you have with your pc? :lol:



In 7th grade, I teach the students how Chuck Norris took down the Roman Empire, so it is good that you are starting early on this curriculum.
