About tragiktimes101

I got lazy writing my last profile description, and it sucked. I'm not doing much better this time.

EDIT: Well I guess I'm doing a little better now.

Basic PC Troubleshooting

  1. Turn off and unplug the power supply.

  2. Wait 5 minutes for all of the power to drain from the system.

  3. Unplug all fan/power/data connections inside and outside of your case.

  4. Also, disconnect the RAM and dedicated GPU (if you have one).

  5. Reconnect all cables, RAM, and GPU. Try to start your PC.

  6. If this doesn't work remove all but one RAM stick, the CPU fan, and all MoBo/CPU power cables.

  7. All that should be connected to your MoBo at this time is 1 RAM stick, the CPU fan, and the power cables for the MoBo.

  8. Use a screwdriver or small piece of metal to jump start your MoBo using the front header MoBo port's "+" and "-" prongs.

  9. If your PC starts, then reconnect one component at a time until all components are reconnected.

  10. If it doesn't start, replace the RAM stick with the other one and retry from step #7.
