Computer turning on and off and looping (using TX750W)

Hi,

I recently encountered a problem with the computer. After turning my computer on, it goes on for 2 seconds and then it turns off, and then it automatically turns on and reloops. I don't know if it's caused by the motherboard because there are debugging-LEDS on my motherboard that indicates where the problem area is. When I turn on my computer, the LED representing overvoltage at the southbridge goes on. I'm just wondering if this is a problem caused by a faulty power supply or a faulty motherboard. Please give me some advice. Thank you.

not your exact MB but similar enough issue.

 

you can try resetting the bios.

 

Hi,

true that I have the similar problem, but I also ain't able to go to the post screen. Anyhow, it's either the PSU or the MB, which I believe most likely is the MB's fault. I'll try asking for an RMA for my PSU and the MB and see if that works.

 

Thanks anyway.

if you have access to a volt meter i would check all the pins on the 24 pin connector and look for any out of spec readings before RMA.

if every 12, 5 or 3.3v reading is within 5% of spec its very likely its the motherboard.

also i personally would take the board out of the case and bench test it there to eliminate a case short as a cause.

Is there a way to test if it's the PSU fault without replacing it nor using a volt meter? Because I asked a few of my friends and they're not really willing to remove their PSUs from their comps (too much a hassle).

Hard to say for sure if its the PSU, the motherboard, or if there is a short being detected by the PSU. Other than using the volt meter to test for proper voltages, you can test the PSU in a different system, but other than that there is not much else that you can do to narrow it down. If all else fails and you would like to try a replacement then please Request an RMA.
