Computer won't turn on

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I think my power supply is dying. It started a while ago, if I bumped or touched my psu cable my PC would shut off. I thought that this was because my is on my desk and the cord goes straight down. So every time I would move the cable around and it would turn on. Then a week ago it wouldn't turn on at all, no matter where I positioned the cable in the socket or on my desk, I would sometimes get it but once I let go of the cable it would shut off. So I didn't play for a week and considered getting a new psu. So before I went to unplug everything to ship it to evga and get it fixed or get a new one, I checked all the cables. I saw that my 20+4 pin connector had the 4 part not completely in and my case connectors on my motherboard weren't in right. So I fixed those and my pc worked and I had no problems with it at all. Then the problem started happening again today. I have no idea what it could be. I have warranty with evga on my psu. Help is appreciated.

After reading your novel, it is safe to say your PSU is botched.  Also the 4 part not connected can actually destroy your motherboard.  Let us hope that is not the case.  Grab a temp PSU and RMA evga and you should be good to go.
