    PC not starting up

    Sigh, I need your help again guys.

    Today I decided ito was time to re-cable and generally tidy up my PC. I have been planning this for a few months as its the first anniversary since getting my new PC.

    So I did the re-cable which took me several hours. It also involved cleaning the thermal paste off my h100i.

    After all this was complete I managed to successfully boot into Windows. So I put all the panels back on the case. The back panel was quite a tight fit.

    It was then that the PC would not boot. I press the power button and the PC immediately turns itself off. I think something may be shorting but I have no clue as to what. I have tried reseating componets and can't think of what I need to do next.

    I hope I haven't shorted something expensivery. 😂

    Hi swarfega

    If you try with the side panel removed, does it boot?
    You may have displaced a panel access switch.

    If it still does not boot, try disconnecting the PSU (and the CMOS battery) for 10 minutes.

    Even though you said you tried reseating all components I would do it again. Take your time and make sure everything is seated correctly and all cables are connected correctly.
