Hi Guys,

So I'm pottering about doing my thing when my computer powers down completely out of the blue. I try turning it back on with the power button but nothing happens until I unplug and plug back in the power cable. Now the computer powers up (fans spin, lights on) but I get no signal to the monitor and there is absolutely no beep code. What's even weirder is that sometimes (not always) when I turn the power on the comp spins up then powers down for a few seconds before coming back on again.

PSU's probably my first suspect, any help anyone could give would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Asus mobo
Intel Q6600
Nvidia GTX460
6gb DDR2

not a lot you can do unless you have another computer to test the PSU with or test a different PSU in your computer, if you don't have a spare computer or PSU then take ur PSU to a computer shop, they should be able to tell you if the PSU is working or not. They may charge you a small fee for doing this. It could also be a motherboard issue if your PSU is working fine, or Graphics Card.

Thanks for the advice, I may just do that. Resetting the CMOS atm just in case, then I'll probably take everything out except the CPU and see if I can get it to post.
