I dusted out my case and changed out a fan, when I hooked it back up, nothing. I looked over the mobo, dusted some more, and checked cords/unplugged and re-plugged some things, and still nothing.

I’ve never had an issue like this, but I’ve been using the same cpu and psu for over 6 years. My first guess is my psu, since it’s kinda old at this point and maybe it got shaken up or something will moving my pc earlier.

Any idea on my best bet?

Does the power supply had a power switch? I always forget that at times and roll my eyes. Check the gpu if you have a dedicated one if its seated correctly.
I flipped the switch. I see no lights on my mobo, no fans spin and no beebs when I attempt to power up.

I reinstalled the gpu the first time it didn’t work. No luck.

No blown caps, but I suppose it could be my old ass mobo too. I really didn’t do much initially, quick clean and replaced one fan. Confusing!
