Its my first post to the forum, and its about an annoying situation with my pc.
I built my desktop about a year ago, and now its having some issues.
Basically when I turn it on it stays in a black screen and the CPU LED is on meaning a problem with the CPU however, the first time this happened I just unplugged everything even the PSU cables to every component and slowly plugged them back in and tried turning it on each time, for some reason when I had just the GPU, CPU, 1 stick of RAM and SSD it worked and I thought well its now fixed.
A few days later its back on the same issue. I've read online it could be related to the CPU requiring more power and my PSU not giving it enough without the second cable of 4 pins to power the CPU.
Anyway my build is:
- Motherboard: MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge Wifi
- CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
- GPU: MSI RTX 2060
- RAM: 16 GB (2x8) T-Force Delta DDR4 3000
- PSU: Nfortec Sagitta 750w 80 plus gold (Link to store where i got it from)
- SSD: m.2 512 GB
- HDD: 8 TB
- OS: Windows 10
I believe the fault is with the power supply because the manual of the motherboard doesn't specifically indicate that the second cpu cable doesn't need to be plugged in, in fact it shows that it should be connected.
If anyone could help me with this would be awesome. Should I just get a new power supply? And if yes, do you know about one with that 8+4 pins for the cpu connectors?
Or any other ideas are welcome too.
