My computer doesn't boot,

Go to solution Solved by Jamesgames99,

As it turns out it was the PSU that caused the fault!

I recently got a new desktop, I opened the program to find the best boost for the processor (don't know what the program is called) , I clicked go and before it had finished I lost power, after I turned the power on again the lights on the motherboard (ASUS ROG Strix X570-f Gaming) cycles from Orange (RAM) to red (CPU) to white (VGA) but it doesn't reach Boot. Does anyone know how I can fix it? (The fans also spin up then down)


Thanks James

Try finding out the manufacturer of the motherboard (or if it is a prebuilt look up that manufacturer like Dell) look up the key on the keyboard to get into the bios. then go into the bios go to something like a save menu (it verys from manufacturer to manufacture) then go to reset bios.


If you don't mind giving me your system maybe I could help.

I would like to add this should work but depending on what it is it might not work. 


PS: Some motherboards have near the rear I/O a bios reset button.

seems like a failed overclock. try spamming the DEL key on your keyboard (i dont know of any modern motherboard that uses anything other than delete to enter the bios) and reset the settings to default. If that doesnt work, unplug your whole pc and remove the CMOS battery on the mobo (its the button battery usually on the center of the mobo). Leave it for an hour or two, put it back in and boot up the pc. Doing so should reset the mobo to default settings.

I imagine there is also a jumper on the board to reset CMOS.  Short the two pins of the jumper with something metal to activate.  If you can't get into BIOS or get to the CMOS battery.
