What Reasons Would A Computer Power Up But Not Boot?
When I power on my computer it will not boot. It will not even go into bios or anything. It is as if it is not powering on at all, however the decorative casing lights turn on and the PC is making noise (like from the fans).
I am reluctant to think it is the power supply since some part are getting power. I do not know what it is though?
For the couple days leading up to this, the computer would make a loud noise and the screen would stop displaying anything. I had to reboot to get it to work again. Now nothing happens when I boot, except the case lights come on and it sounds like some fans are coming on.
I disconnected a media reader, It then booted up and ran for about 5 minutes before completely loosing power instantly. I booted again and it starts to boot but instantly powers off before finishing booting.
