Motherboard lights flashing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I had a problem that lead to the fact that my pc doesn't turn on anymore. I got a new power supply 'cause I had to buy another one anyway..

 

When I turn on the power supply without touching anything else - motherboard starts to flash. To be exact my mobo is MSI Z270 Gaming Pro Carbon. And the lights that are flashing are f. ex. on every memory I have on, debug led etc. + Processors fan and case fans. Also my power supply (which is now Enermax Revolution D.F) fan tries to start but it doesn't.

 

Does anyone know what the problem is?

 

Also - pressing the power button on my case doesn't do anything.

Literally I was just playing a game and it crashed. It didn't start again so I decided to turn off my pc and turn it back on > all of my audio got blocked and I kept getting blue screens with different errors.

 

I tried to reset my windows but got errors, tried to reinstall windows and got errors. It finally worked but everything was crashing and I got blue screens all the time.

 

People started to tell me to take every part out so I did for most of them (didn't touch the processor) I even took the mobo battery off for a while and then it just didn't turn on anymore. After that I changed the power supply.

 

All of my parts are about 2 years old. I got more memory, it's probably 6 months old or so, I also got RTX 2080 Ti and I got it months ago when it almost just came. I'm waiting for the Ryzen 9 3950x so I have to change my mobo too but it sucks if the old cpu is dead now...

I'd say just wait for the new mobo and cpu. but on another note did you at all change your thermal paste over the 2 years? or possibly monitor your temps at all? though they have protections in place the cpu might have fried or something on the mobo did.
