PC Shuts down soon after booting up (after dust removal inside)
Hi

Ok, so I decided the clean the dust from the inside of my desktop PC using compressed air. I followed precautionary advice like not touching the components inside other than the fans etc

Now I boot up the PC and after 5 minutes of being on it powers off immediately.

Is there a hardware check I can do or a list of most likelys? I really hope something major is not damaged

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Thanks

CPU temp in BIOS is 58 C, so thats fine Im assuming
After opening the case and powering the pc, all fans are running except the graphics card fan

Could the graphics fan be the fault

I did think there would be somebody on here that could offer some help. Unless Ive broken the rules in some way. Well, Ive removed the graphics card and the PC has not shut down yet (touch wood!!!!) I realise that saying that may severely jinx me and my PC will die at any minute.

So now after cleaning the card, do I risk putting it back???

If the graphics card fan wasn't running then that very well could be the problem. I assume you are now able to run the computer with the onboard graphics.
Try reinstalling the GPU and see if the fan starts up it could have been just a bad connection. If the fan doesn't start up it has probably died. Some fans on GPUs can be replaced, sometimes it's just best to get a new GPU.

There is no risk putting it back, try it as you may have knocked it out of place which is causing the shut down. Try re-seating all the components if that doesn't work.

One thing I see is that you have a low pw amd cpu [555] You post your temp is 58C in the bios; that is too hot. That cpu should be running in the low 30s under a no load condition [which is what it is in when running in the bios]

Check the fan mounting to see if you have perhaps broken a retaining clip or maybe the thermal compound has dried out and is no longer working correctly.
Max temp on that cpu is 70C so it is still within limits however your temp is going to get hotter than 58C when you put the cpu under a load ie video encoding, gaming, etc.

thanks for the replies, I cleaned and replaced the GPU and that seems to have done the trick. I am a bit worried about the temp of the CPU thoug so Im going to monitor that
