Help Getting a New PC

As my Old 1 Died as when Turnee on it powers up and Straighy away turns back off and Keeps Doing it so Thinking of a New Computer but not sure best way to do it

Would buy a new Computer at like Office Works or Harvey Norman be better then get someone to Build it for me?


If you have the means to build one I always recommend that route.

The biggest difference is an upgrade path.

If you build your own you can get an entry level CPU, starter GPU, half the max memory, 1 of two or three M.2 HDDs, etc.

Then when the time is right, you can upgrade select components.

Pre-built systems often use proprietary motherboards and cheap cases. The MBs are lacking features, have almost no upgrade path, and the cases often have no room for a second or third HDD.

BTW. If you have a Micro Center near you you can have them build a custom PC for you.


Are you sure it’s not just the power supply or maybe the motherboard alone or maybe a faulty USB device or port?

Don’t you have a known working power supply you can swap it out with?

Turning on then shutting down could also be a sign of overheating. Try some basic troubleshooting first.

Maybe have a tech perform a proper diagnosis on it.

What sort of configuration are we looking at here?

Not USB as Pulled everything from USB Out

Tried only with Power Cord Plugged in

Had another go at my Old Computer and I fixed it.

Was the Power Cord from Power Supply to Motherboard that was not Fitting Right
