I leave my computer on for a long times like 1-4 weeks at a time so that may be part of the problem but it doesn't get really hot (it has 7 fans so yea) but back to the problem when its started i turned it on and i wasn't looking and then it turned off (still not looking) and it turned off again and then it on (looking this time) and i saw it booting up then i saw it froze at the windows 7 logo and then either i turned it off or it turned its self off then. Now when i turn it on it turns its self off after few seconds. but when i leave it alone for a day it stays on for 5-15 seconds.


If you can please help me!


my specs: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-AMD-FX-8350-4-0GHZ-16GB-DDR3-500GB-38496000-/201156598215?

The link to your specs shows nothing other than the fact it has a fx8350 and 16gig of ram.
You need to open the case and find out what hardware you have installed; ie exact mb, exact ram, exact pw supply, exact video card, etc, etc.

If this unit is still under warranty, be sure to check with the seller to see if opening the case will void your warranty.

Is the power supply good enough to supply seven fans and all the other stuff??

Sounds like over heating to me. Seven fans won't do much if thermal past on the heatsink is old or if heatsink is full of lint.

Seven fans says that there was a heat problem TRYING to be overcome rather than fixed.

Seeing as you have 3 years warranty, you might as well take it back to base for repair. I expect solutions proposed here will be invasive and might invalidate your warranty. Nice rig, by the way.

Thanks, yea i am going to do that but i just wanted to see if it was a simple fix like the button for turning it on or something like that. but i'll see if i can return it because it is under warranty and i don't think opening the case is breaking the warranty if it is than i cant bring it back. :)

If you want to check the pw button, that is a very quick and easy test [as long as you can open the case]
Pull the two case leads for the pw switch pins and connect them to the reset switch pins on the board. Hit the reset button and see if it posts/boots correctly. If it does [which I doubt] then you know it is either the switch itself OR the wires.
