  1. Hey, I just got my PC repaired (failing motherboard) but now after about 30 minutes of it being on, I shut it down and when I came back to turn it on it wouldnt start up. The loading light flashed for a second then went blank. The green light on my mobo is on but the fans are not spinning.

    I have an asus p5p800 mobo and a 450watt genuine psu.....

    what could be the problem????

    It sounds like a power supply problem. What brand is your power supply?

    I would also suggest you didn't actually get a 'repair'. All too many times in my internal company experience, I have received a 'dead' PC for 'repair', and on boot-up nothing appears wrong. You then just clean everything, re-seat everything and hope for the best. Sometimes everything goes fine for ages, sometimes the problem recurs in days, weeks or months.

    These cases can be the very devil to put right, and you have my sympathy.

    Actually, though, you might try reseating the RAM, reconnecting the mobo power (ensure that it's done correctly), and just making sure everything is as it should be. If that doesn't work, maybe it's just a freak thing, like gbhall said; but I'd tend to think PSU. anybody else agree?
