PC shutting off

  1. My sister's pc was shutting off (kernel power 41), and now it doesnt boot.

    Specs:
    Asus H110M-C D3/BR
    i5 6400
    1x 8gb Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz ddr3
    Thermaltake 600w
    NVIDIA gtx 970
    1 ssd, 1 secondary hd

    I recorded a video:


    Keyboard/monitor/mouse turns on, then it restarts and don't turns on anymore

    1) I already tested another ram, and psu.

    What can be the problem? I hope someone could help me

    (kernel power 41) - sorry, it is only a stupid message from Microsoft saying your computer froze and had to be restarted - you already knew that. If there was an error just before this, it might tell us a lot.

    I have often found that problems like these can be as simple as a bad switch or something which fell down in the case or a loose power connector or a misplaced USB connection on the motherboard, etc., etc.

    Best approach is to have an organized plan and to keep careful notes.

    Another thing worth checking are the power and reset switches - remove wires to motherboard and use a flatblade screw driver to connect the two power pins for a second - your computer should start - if it runs, then the switch is bad.
