CPU Shuts off after 8 seconds...
One day out of the blue my computer stopped working. I turn it on, and all the fans turn on (including power supply) but instead of starting to boot up, it shuts off after 8-10 seconds, then turns back on and keeps doing this until I shut off the power supply. Also, the monitor screen never changes...it just stays on standby. I have done some research on this, and the most common answers are the power supply, or the motherboard.
My guess would be the power supply, but I wanted some more opinions before I invest in a new one.
Here are my specs.
Motherboard: Gigabyte gigabyte ga-ep45c-ud3r
Power supply: Raidmax ATX12v 420w (model # RX-420k)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor
RAM: Corsair DDr2 2048 MB (x2)
Hard drive: Western Digital WD 1600 JB (160 gigs)
Graphics card: Nvidea GEForce 8800gt
Thank you, any help is much appreciated.
