    tried a different working power supply
    List current issues or symptoms:
    Same issue as before , desktop computer will not start up
    The computer powers on, the fans spin on but a couple of mins later the fans turn off.
    The monitor screen is totally post up happens.
    There are not post up beeps to trouble shoot.

    Now after all my trial and error work on the computer, after putting it back together and saving the

    Seems that already a bad hardware issue there, so likely you need to make an assistant of a technician or purchase a replacement.

    Motherboard may one of the main culprit cause you replace everything and the problem still persist, its a very common problem where desktop computers aging are nearly die and many issues occurred.

    I've encountered all of this and sudden replacement is a solution.
