Only the fans on the psu and case turn (very slowly)

I press the power button to boot and the fans stopped working

I turned the psu back on and the fans came on... tried to boot up but failed again

No lights turn on in the front

I just posted a thread stating that I needed some help and an admin closed it seriously wtf

I need some help...

Clean out the dust from the PC. Make sure that it hasnt over heated. Could be a dead PSU or dead mobo.

What Power Supply? Check the connections from the case to the MOBO.

Need more details on the rig.

If they no longer turn on that is your issue. Overheating lead to hardware failure.

^ Uh oh.. Hook another fan directly to the PSU and see if it's feeding power..

I'm thinking the PSU crapped out..

Q6600
HD 4870
Gigabyte EP45 DS3L
2gb Ballistix ram
500gb Seagate
Antec 300 case
DVD rw

When I went to turn the computer the fans were turning VERY slowly and when I changed the fan speed while they were running they stopped working


No lights, fans, or anything is moving right now when I try and turn it on

shoot over to a bestbuy/circuitcity/officedepot/etc and get those psu testers their not too expensive and test out your psu. also make sure the main power is connected and theres a 2nd one usually a small square one that should also be connected to your MB.
