Bought an assembled computer on year 2007
*Intel DX58SO Mother board
*Transcend 2x2 gb ram
*NVDIA 9800 GT 1GB
*HUNTKEY 550W SMPS
*CORE i7 Processor
*Cooler Master Cabinet
*Window 7 professional OS
Usually leave the computer on for a week or two because of downloads
and play high graphic games every two days or so.
Now I am having this problem of computer not switching on as needed.
It only switch's on if I keep the power cord in on mode for a long time and then press the power button.
The green light on the mother board keeps on blinking, so is the mother board led near the 9 pin power supply and the restart led on the cabinet.
I have checked the cabinet switches connected to the Mother board, the CMOS battery and the power chord. All seem to be fine.
I am thinking the problem might be with the SMPS.
Have any one else faced such issue or does anyone have any solution for this......!!!
Your affirmation is correct; the issue could be related to power supply, Operating System or motherboard. Besides swapping power supply we also recommend testing the system on a minimal configuration outside the chassis.
I found the issue to be with my mother board.
Submitted my motherboard in the Intel Digicare center.....07/18/2012
Waiting for a replacement !!
