I recently built myself a computer and I've run into some trouble.
I know you'll want specs, but I can't remember the details and I've misplaced the paperwork. I'll add a post if I find the right stuff.
The Problem: A week or so after I started using the computer, it froze.
I thought that perhaps it was overheating (the temp being nearly 100 degrees all week and I only have the stock fan). So I restarted and thought nothing of it. However, the problem persisted. Sometimes, I wasn't even there when it crashed, I would just come home and the monitor wouldn't turn on because the PC wasn't recieving and input from the mouse or keyboard. So I restarted and it was fine. Last night, I brought the computer over to my friend's house to transfer some files and when I brought it home, it wouldn't start at all.
What I checked: On for approx. 1 sec, all the fans function, not on long enough for harddrives to spin, front panel LED works for the 1 sec, all wires properly attached and in normal condition.
Of note: The instant before the crash, without warning I got a plug and play message that said "new USB device found", which was odd, because I hadn't pluggged anything in.
What I think: PSU failure due to overheating.
Any input before I replace my PSU (550W) as to what else the problem could be would be greatly appreciated.
