My brother has an old pc, an i3 2120 in a DH61WW mobo 8gigs of ram with gt220. Pretty old right?

The problem is, the pc boots up to win10 but when I tried to restart it, it turns black, No Post No Display, No nothing.
Only those two short beeps from the motherboard.

Then I tried swapping those Rams (2x4gbs) and it magically opens up again. But whenever I tried to restart it it turns black again and tried to swap those rams and it boots again.

Another thing is whenever I shut it down, the cpu/case fans still spin, thus I needed to hold the power button to completely shut it down.

What do you think is the problem?

Thanks it is the gpu, I resetted it. But the other problem is after shutting down the PC, Fan and LED strips still has power. Is it a faulty PSU? or some software problem?

PSU: Corsair VS650 (using it for like a year now)

This: "But the other problem is after shutting down the PC, Fan and LED strips still has power. "

What specific references are you using to determine that power is present: e.g., which LED's? Which fans?

After shutting down the PC what happens if the PC is physically unplugged?

What I mean by LED was the strips built in from the case, and for the fans, CPU fan, exhaust and intake fan still spins after shutting down the windows.

Actually I accidentally fixed it by going to Power Options and unchecking the fast startup from the option "choose what the power button does".
