When I opened the case on my computer and attempted to turn it on again I noticed that the fan on the CPU would begin to spin for a second as if it was initiating bootup, but then it would stop and the computer would never turn on. Next I unplugged the GPU and tried again, same result. Then I unplugged the HDD and SSD as well as the GPU and tried again. This time it came on and booted, but crashed soon after.
I am about 95% sure it is a PSU issue. I am guessing the power outages caused a surge and affected my PSU. I have already RMA'd a replacement and will have it soon. Do you guys think the PSU is the issue, or that there could be more than that? I am pretty annoyed that this will be my third PSU in the last 3 months. Definitely making me consider selling the computer altogether!
have you tried a start up repair by booting with windows install disk
sounds corrupt data, from power dropping out and not writting to disk
