Bad PSU or Motherboard

Thanks to Grzwacz. I tried unplugging the motherboard, and connect the green line to the black line using a wire, when I plug in the power cable, the fan at the PSU ran continuously without stopping. Does this mean the motherboard is bad? How to check? I don't see anything visually burned or damaged, oh, I also unsitted the 2 memory cards and sit them back. I still have the same problem: when turn on Power, all fans run for a very short time and stop, then the green LED light on the back also went out.

Hi bud-joke,


You started a new topic.


You should respond using the original topic.


I don't what you have done. But I did not tell you to cross connect motherboard or power supply connections using wire.


I think you should have a local PC tech take a look at your PC to see what is happening.


You could damage the PC or worse,... get seriously hurt doing something you should not be doing.
