    Hi guys,

    Really hope you guys can help me with the problem that I'm having right now.

    It was all normal one day when my computer suddenly froze up and I had to do a reset. However, It briefly went into this BIOS sort of page and started updating BIOS which failed.

    Ever since, whenever I try switching on the power the fans inside as well as the LED lights comes on, then it automatically did the same thing, power went off, den power comes back on with fans spinning along with LED lights, then off again.

    I have seriously no idea what to do right now and I can't even bring it to my motherboard's manufacturer to see what's wrong because my warranty happened to expire a week ago.

    Much appreciated for any help that you guys may give.

    Yours sincerely,
    Jan

    You might think about swapping in a Known Good Power Supply and see if that helps.

    I had the same thought initially, but it did not give me any problems until the day before yesterday. Everything was normal then..
