Question about Intel Foxconn: Foxconn CPU Cooler For P4 478 3.4GHz CPU Cooling Kit
When switching on my PC, the power light and keyboard lights come on for 1 second and go off again but my PC does not switch on. Could it be my fan that is causing this?
Normally the computer will still come on even if the fan is not there but then will sometime display cpu fan warning and then sometimes turn off depending on motherboard and so on but unless the fan wires are shorted out or something this is most likely not the case
It sounds like your power supply has gone bad
Do you hear any type of winning sound or like a discharge sound that is barely noticeable when you turn it on? You would probably almost have to put your ear right next to it to hear it or listen carefully when you press power because that sound is one of the capacitors in the power supply that has gone bad and the power supply would need to be replaced
Do you have another power supply you can use to see if it works with a different one?
