This particular machine has worked almost bug-free for 2 years, one Sunday morning, turn it on for some good old fashioned gaming.  I flipped the switch, and walked away to let it boot up.  When I returned to the computer, it was waiting at the Windows desktop for me like it always has.  Then I move the mouse and it shuts off.  Completely!  I waited the normal 30 seconds after shut off and I turned it back on.  Got to the warm-up mem check screen, and it shut back off...this time only on for 5-7 seconds.  I attepted to turn it on again, and it was only on for 3-5 seconds.  Since then, it will not turn on.  I tryed the power supply in a different computer, and it worked fine.   Please help with anything that you might know about this problem.  Thanks Roll Eyes

Hi,

Is the CPU fan spinning and well attached to the CPU?
Is the system very dusty inside?

I recently took the whole computer apart and rebuilt it.  Absolutely nothing happens when I press the power buttonm on the box.  I cleaned the mother board, very little dust on it.  I don't think the mother board is allowing power to get to the peripherals.

Hi,

When you say absolutely nothing happens when you hit the power button, does this include the CPU fan, hard drive(s)...

I would suspect the power supply but since you tried it elsewhere and it tested fine, I would think it's the motherboard.
