Ah shucks my bad, been a long time since I've posted here. Corsair CX500 psu, xbox r7800 series graphics card, Intel processor (can't tell much more than that by looking at the hardware), ASRock PCI Express 3 motherboard (also says ATI cross fire x). Sorry, it's been a good long time since I've done any PC work.full system spec? include make and model of the psu?
it is a working system that suddenly failed?
I've opened it up already to clean the guts & press the wires in to make sure they didn't get knocked loose or something. How would I check for burning? Nothing seems particularly out of the ordinary except the dust which I've since cleaned. Thanks for your timeSo it was running and suddenly die? open it up and see if anything pop/burn?
Dedicated GPU! Damn, looks like I'll have to test each component. I could simply replace the prime suspect (motherboard), but that sounds both costly & risky in my situation. Looks like I'll have to bring the tower into a shop for a diagnosis & replace the part myself. Thanks for all your helpif the intel cpu have igpu, test the system with the gpu out.
other than that test each components in a working system or replace each
