    Question Gigabyte GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 Doesn't Boot Anymore!


    I've been using this computer since October 2015 without a problem. I haven't made any hardware changes, and used it just this morning. When I tried to power it on from Sleep at noon, the case gave me a PWR_LED steady on, the fans tried to spin for a split second, and the monitor gave a brief flicker of life like it was trying to send output, then nothing. No fans, not hard drive whirr, no motherboard lights; nothing. Just the case PWR_LED fan stays on. I'd hazard it's a power supply or the motherboard went bad, but I'm not sure what to do next. I've already filled out an RMA form with Gigabyte to get that process started.

    I swapped out the PSU for an older one and everything is working. Time to RMA the EVGA PSU, I guess.
