Power up issue? — Micro Center

Power up issue?

Computer will turn on for 3ish seconds then turn off then return on.  This will continue until I turn the switch off in the back.  So far my solution to when this happens is to just randomly unplug and replug wires in until it works.  Anyone else run in to this problem and have a solution for it?


  • Hello @GFC, welcome to the Micro Center Community!

    Issues like these usually signify something is improperly plugged in wrong and the PSU/Motherboard is detecting an issue and trying to prevent it.  A common reason is using a cord from a different power supply.  Another one is trying to use the GPU cables in the CPU header or vice-versa.
