Hi there! So, the other day my pc powered off and wont turn back on. I press the power button and it gets a few seconds of power, but then dies. to get anything again I have to turn the psu off, unplug it, plug it back in, turn it on, THEN hit the power button. This is with an RX 580 8gb installed.

The weird thing is that if I toss my gtx 680 in instead, it gives me about 5 seconds of power before it dies.

Is this a PSU issue? It seems like it to me but I want to be sure before I drop cash on a new one.

The AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics card uses 185W of power.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 graphics card uses 195W of power.

What is the brand name and exact model number and wattage of the power supply in your PC?

A detailed description of your PC's motherboard and processor would also be helpful to the hardware/diagnostic experts here.

All the rapid movement in your video made it hard to watch.

You need to wait for one of our hardware/diagnostic experts to reply to you.

Good luck.
