Alright well, first off, this PC is fairly new. I bought it late February of this year.
A few months later, we had the power on the block flicker a few times, killing the power (PC is plugged into a surge protector). Turning it back on would give me the
CMOS Settings Wrong, Date/Time not set screen.
Tried switching out the CMOS battery, np. A few months later power flickers on and off again. I hit the power button on the PC later to turn it back on, but nothing happens.. An hour later, PC randomly powers on.
A month or so later, same thing. Power to the neighborhood dies while PC is on, few hours later I try and power it back on and it doesn't turn on or respond at all. Yet a few hours later the PC randomly powers itself up.
And most recently, power flickered to the neighborhood, yet again, later that night I try and turn my desktop back on, and absolutely nothing. Been days and it just seems dead. Refuses to turn on or respond when I hit the power button.
Few things to note: I use an MSI X58 Pro-E Motherboard. The motherboard light IS on (orange).
I never turn my desktop off (cept to restart for updates.) The only time it was turned off was when the power flickered/went out.
I had a technician check it out, he said he thinks it's the power supply. He tested it and said only one of the legs is giving any power, or something like that. He swapped it out with a brand new power supply, tried everything with it, including a new battery, but the PC still won't power on.
Any idea what it could be? Maybe the motherboard? Or would a dead processor cause it to not power on at all (hope not, $$$.) Any help is appreciated, thanks!
