Yes bout 6-8 months ago my original psu died and I got a new psu and the mb and other components seemed to work fine. Until now. So I’m trying to figure out if I should just build a new computer with a new mb or switch out the power supply. I’m thinking new mb, ram, cpu.
ok can u somehow test every part in other pc cuz there is chance that the problem is in the OS

Is there pc in which u can put ur cpu ram gpu and test them to see which is the problematic one
Lol that makes sense, i will see if I can find one. But I’m running out time, I may see if it is the power supply first and if that’s not the case go ahead and get a new mb cpu and ram just so I can get my computer up and running.

The problem is that he doesn't have that model! He has random 750W psu thats why i think its the issue!!+ I gave 25$ more for new psu just cuz it had rgb so ur lil bit insulting me!
I'm not trying to insult you. It's more my commentary on where computer mods are going. Everything has RGB now. I never thought that RAM would have RGB but now it is a popular feature. By the way, I have been building my own PCs since 1995. A warm reboot is when you hold down Control + Alt + delete key and then release after the computer has been turned on. If the computer finishes the boot process and loads Windows then it's likely the PSU. But it could be lots of things. Sometimes loose RAM modules - or Ram modules placed in the wrong slots can cause issues.

Okay the warm boot yielded no results, still going through its power cycling. I’m going to take it to a computer repair shop tomorrow and hopefully get conclusive proof it’s either the psu or mb.
