Hey,

so I bought my PC at the end of 2017 and until a few weeks ago, I never had any problems with it.
So, a few weeks ago, my friend bumped into it (not that hard) and it turned of immediately. Since then, I can still boot and work/play for some time, but it keeps crashing (everything just turns of) and sometimes I cannot start it for a while: I then try to turn it on but only the fans and leds on the PC start (also no "beep" of the mainboard what it usually does). After a few tries, every thing starts again normally.

But since yesterday the crashes accure nearly every 5-15 mins. And also not the entire PC turns off, but my monitors, mouse, keyboard etc (LEDs turn off). Fans are still running but nothing happens anymore.
I checked the connection of the cabels and monitored the temperature: Everything seems fine.

My specs:
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1800X (8x 3.6GHz)
RAM: Crucial DDR4 16GB
Mainboard: ASUS PRIME B350-PLUS
Power: Corsair TX850M
Cooling: Be Quiet Pure Rock Slim
Case: Kolink Punisher RGB

Hope you can help and thanks it advance!
Jonny

If this happened after being bumped, then start by reseating all parts ie atx and aux pw connectors, ram, video card, processor, etc. Note when you reseat the processor, you will need to clean all parts with alcohol and use new thermal compound. With each part, when you remove it, give it a VERY close inspection for any signs of arcing ie burn marks. Use a bright light for the motherboard connectors.
