Computer won't boot when I launched it this morning. Checked the post LEDs on the mobo and it's reading 00. It's not even reaching POST. Ideas?

    What's your motherboard's manual say about 00? Check the forms searching for 00 and your motherboard model. Check to make sure the video card and ram are seated. Take a can of duster to it.

    @djsumdog my manual says nothing about 00. I've double checked seating on everything. I don't have spare parts to do known good testing. I did get it running for 10 Minutes before it shut down randomly. Wasn't CPU temps or overdrawing current since my PSU is 860W

    It's dead, Jim

    It can be basically anything

    Depends on the model/motherboard/vendor etc. Did you build it yourself? Clear CMOS? Restore bios?

    Oh, dead psu?

    Bad pci cards? Graphics cards, etc.

    I built the PC. It's running a MSI Z170M titanium mobo

    @electrineer this is what's bothering me. Literally any part could be causing this issue

    @d4ng3r0u5 I'd hope not. I sunk $4000 into this system
    I can't just let it die

    Pull out your PSU. Short the green wire and any black wire on the 24 pin connector. Get your voltmeter out and start testing. If all is good, take your gpu(s) out and use on board graphics.

    Also, bad ram?

    Pull our all usb from the machine, try turning it on without ram wjth a buzzer, clear CMOS

    I'm picking up a PSU tester rn. My suspicion is that the PSU is going bad. Dunno why else it would be so erratic with it's booting and power delivery

    @olback I doubt and really hope it's not my GPU. I just a week ago got a new Titan XP in a raffle

    @andpeterson Titan XP. Damn. Praying 🙏 with you.

    Is there a lot of load on the psu? I’ve had erratic behaviour on a machine recently which I suspected was caused by a faulty psu, but it transpired that my adding of too many disks was putting too much of a demand on it.

    About 15 years ago, I had a server with a delayed power board which would power up the disks one by one with a 1 second gap in between starting 3 seconds after the power button was hit to reduce the initial load.

    Without it, the machine could handle 4 quantum Bigfoot disks but with it enabled, I could run an additional 3 disks.

    @oudalally I don't believe the PSU really was ever under load. My PC was an open air PC for a long time and the PSU fan rarely kicked up. I just ran some tests with a PSU tester and it immediately started boot looping when I plugged in the P1 connector (CPU connector)

    It was an AX 860i. Was an expensive PSU and it was sad to see it go but I believe it had enough fail safes to not have all my other components fry

    That issue sounds like built up static.

    Ground yourself (by touching the PSU, which is corrected to the wall socket, but turned OFF), then remove every component, even the connections to the casing's on/reset buttons and USB ports. Leave only the speaker/Piezo buzzer connected (that tiny speaker that beeps on behalf of your motherboard).

    Finally, remove the battery and hold down the ON button on your motherboard (not casing) for at least 5 seconds.

    If the problem was indeed static, your motherboard should boot up and beep due to the missing battery.

    At this point, turn everything off, replace the battery to its original socket and boot as normal.

    Swap the PSU and try again.

    As someone already said, unplug everything, usb/buses and try

    00 could be anything. Probably a hardware problem.

    You need to turn on your screen
