I built a PC a couple of months ago and it's been running fine ever since up until a few days ago when it randomly turned off, I just turned it back on and it was fine, there was no evidence of overheating so I just ignored it. It happened a few more times and the last time it happened it just wouldn't turn back on, bootup, no fans, or anything. The MB is getting power because my iPod still charges through USB and my LAN Ethernet port lights flash when I plug in my LAN cable.

I've taken it all apart and reassembled it checking for any short's, I've reset the CMOS, taken the PSU apart to check for burnt out resistors and fuses, the external power cables are all fine, the CPU looks fine.......now I'm running out of ideas and would appreciate any help on the matter.

Specs
------
AMD X2 5200+
NFORCE4M-A
ATi Radeon X1650 Pro
4Gb DDR2
350W PSU
Creative Audiology Sound Card

Thankyou in advance (y).

hmmm.... im not too sure about your PSU being powerful enough for 4GB Ram....
maybe upgrade to a 500W+ to future proof yourself

Yea, thats my main concern atm. I'm going to test a more powerful PSU later on this evening and will probably purchase one soon anyway so I'm hopeing that is the problem. But its worked fine for 2 months.
