Assistance with diagnosing my mystery fault
Right lads, maybe someone here will be able to help out because god, I need some help.
Here’s my build: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/cptddD
After cleaning it out a few months ago, it broke. The fans and LEDs would instantly turn on once the PSU received power without me pressing the power button.
Ended up RMAing the motherboard basically on a guess, my troubleshooting came down to it being motherboard or RAM.
I never found out if the motherboard was broken or not. Due to COVID ASRock took over 28 days to resolve the issue, so instead CCL Computers, who I bought the board off originally, just replaced the board for me free of charge
Got my new motherboard, rigged it all up with just the basic components, and it turned on. I’m an utter idiot however and instead of testing it there whilst it was working, I turned it off and rigged it back into my case. And then it stopped working. This time, the fans don’t all instantly turn on when the PSU’s switch it turned on, however my case’s power button doesn’t work, and I don’t get any display. Gone back to just having the board rigged up with the base components and now when I turn it on, the cpu cooler fan spins up to 100%, the PSU fan shuts off after a few seconds (as it should, it’s got a 0 rpm mode), and I get no display. I’ve tried troubleshooting it and I’m stumped. Any advice or assistance would be appreciated.
