Good evening, I'm a computer science student and I have a little problem that I can't fix.


About a year ago, my first tower computer decided to die in the middle of final exams. So as a good student that I am, I started testing. I tried to disconnect the processor, the ram, the hard disk, and all the components of the board to see if it turned on.


The fact was that in the end it was the board, and the only thing I had to do was process the warranty for the computer, which was preassembled.


So I decided to build my own computer. The fact is, these days the computer is failing again with the same symptoms as the previous one. And here a question arises, is it possible that in both computers the motherboard is the problem?


At the moment these are the symptoms:
- Sometimes it turns on and sometimes it doesn't, depending on when it wants.

- Once the computer is turned on, it does not give any problem.


What do you think? Could I have just had bad luck or that there are other factors that I do not know?


Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a power supply maybe?

Please post all your components, mobo, psu, processor, gpu

Also, when did this start or has it done it since it was built?


When it wont turn on, unplug the power cord and while it is unplugged, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.

Then plug it back in.

Will it now turn on?

If so, does this resolve this repeatedly?

This started one week ago. Also, I have the oportunity to test the psu with a tester and all the values were correct.


No, the computer doesn't start in anyway.
