    Default PC won't boot after 5 years of using


    Incident before it happened:
    Low voltage sa amoa, dayon na off ang PC, after a few seconds, nibalik, so okies pa to. More than 3 hours, namatay na, tried turning on AVR (Stavol), mo shut-off ug kalit. So ako gi-open ang AVR the following day, wala man tingali problema kay moandar ra man, mo shut off ang AVR kung connected ang PC ug i-on na nako.

    Suspect is power supply, I did the paper clip test, unfortunately, wala mi andar ang fan sa psu, wala pud ko extra fan (with molex connector) to test it. I tried connecting the psu thru AVR, wala man pud ma-off dayon ang AVR, ga duda pud ko ug power supply ba gyud.

    So, gitang-tang nako tanan, re applied thermal paste, dala na limpyo. Wala gyud.

    Specs:
    i5-4590
    1tb x 2pcs; 1ssd 250gb
    h97
    8gb ram
    gtx970
    seasonic g-550 80plus gold (abi nako pang-matagalan ni nga brand)
    Stavol 1000VA
    Bought and assembled late 2014 pa.

    If psu gyud ang problema, unsay maayo nga brand para replacement?

    Salamat sa tabang!

    PSU gyud problema ana kung dili ma paperclip test. Buy the same psu? Or kato 500W sa Silvestorne PSU more than enough for your needs. You don't really need anything fancy or anything more powerful than a branded 500W PSU.

    you do know that most psu have 3-5yrs warranty and i'm sure its not the first time maglow voltage sa inyoha.
