so I was playing FIFA 19 yesterday, then out of nowhere my pc crashed. After that I tried to restart my PC but it didn't work. I waited the whole night now but it's still the same. I opened up my PC and there was a lot of dust on the inside.
Do you think my PC should work after I clean up the dust?
How do I find out what's broken?
Do you have any idea what else might be the problem?
it certainly sounds like your powersupply or less likely mobo went bad.
and it won't start anymore no matter what you do.
what you can do is install another powersupply, and if it still doesnt work its the mobo.
If you have 2 ram sticks take one out or if you have one put it in the other slot
If it doesnt work its not the ram
If you have a CPU with integrated GPU plus the monitor caple into motherboard and plug GPU out.
If this doesnt work it could be the power supply.
Test it using a pin, just search psu pin trick on google it will show you
Just try it
The pc cant boot with out ram so it could be ram
Also it cant fisplay an image without gpu so may actually not be the case but just try it
Psu coudl have fried everything or it just wont provide any power anymore so try the trick i have shown
I have done these things many times and these are just to find out whats not working
try to borrow a PSU (that 100% works), you can ask at some IT shop or your internet provider (the one at my city has a small shop where they fix things, so they have some spare PSUs. IDK about yours lol). You can pull off a dick move by ordering a PSU and return it after the test.
d i s g u s t i n g thing to do btw
ehm I have a i7 4790k
I dont have a cooler, I have the "cooler" on top of the CPU xd
it could be overheat but why doesn't it go on after 1 day? Do you think something melted?
Do you think after I remove the dust it will work?
Something that might help:
1) Unplug you PC completely
2) Open it up (both left and right panel) and remove some components such as RAMS and GPU.
3) Use a Air blower ( google it) from a bit far away and try to push the dust out. Dont directly point the air blower towards the PC mobo.
4) Use a eraser to clean up your RAMS and GPU.
5) Plug everything in, attach both panels back and boot up.
hope it helps.
