Thank you for the replies
I don’t think I described the situation well enough. The stuff goes on for a VERY small amount of time. Too small for the computer to do anything, really. The fans just barely start up, and the lights are pretty much just a blink. It is also interesting to note that the light on the ethernet card comes on too.
afecelis: I was using my motherboard’s integrated graphics, although I don’t know if this is the problem. Also I’m fairly certain that the RAM is correct. Nothing burning. My last power supply caught on fire so I know what smoke looks/smells like in my computer. Thanks for the advice though!
azecraze: Tried all of those. No success. I’m using this:
I removed everything that was hooked up to the power supply/motherboard, still the exact same results. I think I’ve narrowed the problem down to my motherboard/ps. Thanks for your help!
DwarvenFury: I’ve never overclocked this cpu. I had reset the bios to default before the computer died. My motherboard manual doesn’t say how to reset the bios (the manual kinda sucks).
Eku: Thanks for the link. I’ll check it out.
Like I said above, I think it’s either the power supply/motherboard. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time for it to do anything at all.
When I unplugged everything but the motherboard the CPU fan still went on.
I’ll check the power supply with a volt meter tommorow. The power supply and motherboard are new…
