Ok, So my desktop is dead. This is what happened.
Occasionally, especially while gaming, but more recently even in idle, my computer would freeze up and i would have to turn it off and restart it. well, then it just would not restart. It would begin to turn on, but would not boot up. I thought maybe my cpu cooling was bad, i had a factory cooler on there that i put on after my water cooling crapped out a few years ago. So i thought i would clean it up and put on a new cooler. Did that but then my PC wouldnt even turn on. The mother board would light up (it has some blue leds on it) but would not power on at all. So i am wondering what you guys think. Now the blue leds dont light up at all, i am thinking either my power supply is shot or my mother board is shot. Is there any way to figure it out, unfortunately i do not have another power supply laying around, but i do have some old ass mother boards.
Im afraid if i buy a new power supply it will have been my mother board. unfortunately i dont have the money to buy both a power supply and a mother board/cpu so i need to diagnose the problem as cheaply as possible.
The computer is over three years old.
