    PC Dead!

    Well Merry Christmas, what a way to celebrate. Woke up this morning to the UPS whining, so must have had a power hit during the night. I went to stop it and obviously held the push button too long and shut everything down. Now the PC doesn’t work. I turn it on, the case light comes on, the fans turn, but the monitor just blinks like it doesn’t get a signal. After a minute or so, it shuts off and I cannot turn it back on unless I unplug it. My first thought is the motherboard is bad since I’m using the video on the board. Looking to see if anyone has any other ideas before I run to get a new motherboard.

    The hardware is:

    MSI PRO 550M-VC WIFI
    Ryzen 7 5700G Cezanne

    Thanks

    Did you bypass the UPS AND/OR plug into a different wall outlet?

    Well, I was just going to take your advice & try it, but decided to turn it on once more. Voilla, it came on flawlessly! Not sure why, but not going to tempt the Fates.

    Thanks for your suggestion.
