  1. I turned on my computer to transfer some files between my laptop and desktop, while working on my laptop i looked at my desktop and it...

    blue screened for like 3 seconds then it went blank with everything still running, so I tried rebooting it and now it doesnt boot into post or anything... what happened?

    all it does is start up the fans and hdd

    You could try another power supply... fans and hard drive running doesn't mean a power supply is good

    Could be the motherboard, but power supplies are cheaper to try first. This isn't an e Machines is it? No, good

    of course not, its a semi custom build, the mobo was ripped from an hp comp... everything else bought afterwards

    I tried unplugging then replugging the psu's 24 main pin and 4 pin, it worked all the way to the OS then i turned it off to move it back on the desk and it didnt work again
