For the past few weeks my pc has been crashing on shutdown, and then restarting, but now after being away from it for a few days it won't turn on at all, I have tried shorting the psu and that seemed to work fine, I'm just not sure what to try next.

First of all, no one has any idea what hardware you are running. Post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact motherboard, exact cpu, exact pw supply, etc, etc. Do not post "500W" pw supply; post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.

If by chance this is a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever; post the exact brand and model# If you have a service tag# post that as well.

The Corsair "CX" series power supply is a budget model and is probably the problem.

Cheers for the help lads and sorry to waste your time, turns out it was a faulty connection so I've stripped the wires and it now turns on when I press them together, thanks again, I appreciate the help
