Hello everyone,
today my PC has been a very big nuisance. Everytime I try turning it on, it shuts down after a few seconds. Nothing comes up on the screen while it boots up. I have tried unplugging and plugging in the mobo and graphics card from the PSU.
Pc info:

AMD FX-8320E Processor
ASRock N68-GS4 Motherboard
Palit GTX960 2GB
Hitachi 1TB HDD
Kingston 250GB SDD
600W beQuiet Pure Power PSU
8GB DDR3 1600MHz

If there is any other info you need, please tell me.


Thank you very much!

One would suspect either
1. The PSU
2. The CPU - thermal issue
3. RAM
4. The motherboard or of course other hardware

I would start by taking out the graphics card in case it is that and connect to onboard graphics - the Nvidia 7025
If it still shuts down then you know it is not the graphics

Where you go from there depends of course on what resources you have - such as another PSU or test this PSU in another computer
Examine carefully the motherboard for any signs of swelled capacitors etc.
Remove and clean - and replace thermal compound on CPU

So I did the following:
I took out the graphics card, plugged the pc back in, pushed the button, 1 second up then it went down again.
Unplugged the power.
I took out one stick of ram, plugged the power again, it started up and worked.
I shut it down, put the stick of ram back in AND the GPU, plugged the power back in, it works. After that I pressed enter on my wireless keyboard and it shut down without warning.
This is madness if I'm honest

in case it is a bad stick of ram - leave it out
