My psu is being a cunt. PC starts, led lights flash, then it powers off before it boots. What do?

Replace the Power Supply

I suppose there is a small chance it could be something stupid like a fan fail warning, reset bios for fun.
>>
>>51501719
Could also be RAM.
>>
>>51501778
Not likely.
that's not expected behavior from bad ram.
fucked up mobo caps maybe.

>>51501719
Blown caps are easy to check. Do that before changing the PSU.

Who manufactured your PSU?

If you don't know, then it's probably your PSU, replace it with a good one like a Seasonic. I've seen cardboard and bare wires in some of that OEM Shenzhen refuse. Horrifying stuff.

New psu: Check to make sure you plugged everything thing in, can't tell you how many times I forgot to plug in the p4/p8 to the motherboard

>cardboard and bare wires
Is that even legal?
>>
>>51501719
Check for bad capacitors on both the motherboard and inside the PSU. Do you have a multi meter? If so check for voltages whilst trying to power up.
>>
>>51501778
Naw if the RAM is fucked it makes a beep noise or whatever
>>
/g/ question

Seasonic G550

80 Plus Bronze
vs
80 Plus Gold

I expect them to die in 3 years like my old psu
I use Computer alot

Is gold worth it over bronze or is it a meme
>>
>>51505938
Meme desu senpai.
You should be fine with bronze
>>

Not always. Buddy of mine got a hp desktop in 07 and had random resets from day one. Neither hp support, best buy repair service or w/e and a private pc repair place could figure it out. I test each stick of ram one at a time and it turned out to be the third ram stick. The board never beeped and Windows memory diagnostics never detected a problem. After removing the one stick he never had a problem. Best thing you could do is swap a working psu into your rig and see if it works.

Hey guys
Couldn't find a QTDDTOT thread

My PSU is a cunt too
But in a different way
It makes a clicking noise
Really dang infuriating, annoying clicking noise
It sounds like it could be the fan but its not
I have experienced a limited period when it doesn't click
But now it does
Recorded it: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1ddXMOu21nJ
What the fuck do?
>>
>>51508433
>It sounds like it's fapping
Don't bother it until it's finished
