    Exclamation Pc wont start up

    Sounds like it's either the PSU or the motherboard. Do you have another computer in the house? Try a known working PSU to boot your system - if that doesn't work I'd say it's most likely the motherboard but be sure to try assembling the PC outside the case to eliminate shorts on the case etc.

    Dead and dying power supply. What PSU do you have and how old is it?

    I agree. I had this happen to me once. Well, twice infact. With two identical ASUS boards. By the time the second one went, the CPU and RAM was old tech and I struggled to get a replacement board at all.
