    Just buy a new board if it';s not old, to match the CPU. Or if it is (like mine) buy a kit....mb, cpu and ram in one, lots of places sell them Computerlounge, Ascent and so on.

    I could do that - I've built stuff before, but I think I will take the opportunity to reduce my hardware inventory and investigate new storage options - such as storage spaces. I have the box I built from the ashes of the great meltdown which is currently just sitting around trying out Windows 11, so it might as well do some work for its living.
    We are all but temporary files on the great flash drive of life.

    As piroska mentioned its often the case, if its not the PSU then more than likely the motherboard.

    One way to tell (or test) remove the Memory completely, press the power button it should beep/ squeal complaining of no Memory.

    Seen many (hundreds) of problems relating to a bad power supply, not till you actully confirm its not, you can throw out perfectly good hardware. ( All techs know this) hence usually the 1st point to test
    It's true. The power supply is a good place to start. And then everything else. I had a power supply go bad once, but he didn't tell me about it. I looked for the problem elsewhere, until I changed the power supply and everything worked.

    P.S. Hi all. Let me join your forum
