My computer has stopped booting up. I hit the power button and it will turn on and then after about three seconds later it will shut itself off. I took apart my computer and resembled it one piece at a time. I found out that whenever I plug in my eight pin cpu power connector this will cause my problem to occur.
I built this computer myself about 6 months ago and have already had an issue with the cpu where it had to be replaced... I am wondering if this is another cpu problem or if this could be something else like the psu (doubting it...) or the motherboard?
I seriously doubt its the psu because whenever I dont have the eight pin power connector in the computer powers on fine...
Just curious as to what you all think the problem is! Thank you for any and all help!!!
