My desktop computer is not able to boot anymore. Currently I have breadboarded my computer taking everything out of the case so the motherboard is only connected with:
500W power supply, connected with 2x4 12V for CPU and 2x12 Main Power 2x 4GB Ram i5 Processor + Fan When I switch on, the CPU fan starts to spin and the phase leds on the motherboard appear for a short time and then they disappear which I think is normal.
If I add
Graphic card 512mb Radeoon OR
2x more 4GB RAM The CPU fan spins but the phase leds on the motherboard do not disappear. If I plug the graphic card nothing appears on the screen.
My assumption is that the Power Supply does not handle more hardware parts because it is not working properly.
The problem is I dont have any spare parts to test this. Based on the information can I assume the Power Supply is broken?
