Hello my fellow people, i,ll try keep this short.

I have an unidentified problem.

I was gaming on this computer and suddenly the computer turned off unexpectedly direct
into no power, total blackness, no bluescreen. I tried to start it up again after that but only to be
met by the pc blinking once upon pushing the start button, but not even for a full second,
the fans would not start either however.
To make the pc react to the start button after that i had to replug the cord,
only to blink once and then die, and then unplug..start..unplug start.

However when i disconnected the GPU,the computer would start again with full power and all the
fans working just like normal! , connected GPU back again and it would not work again.

HAS anybody had the similar problem? Or have any idea what the reason might be?
Powersupply issues, not giving enough power? Motherboard?


The Hard drive is not damaged as i tested it on my other computer and it works excellent.

The computer is not modded and bought directly from Alienwares website a bit over a year ago.

Thanks for any thoughts.

Thanks for the reply!

This gpu is very hard to try in another computer, so i couldn't do that as it didn't fit.

Good news though, i changed to another graphic card that is ''less'' and the computer would start up.
I still don't know if it's a power issue or not, so i'm scared to get a better gpu at the moment.

But changin' out the gpu to a less demanding gave the computer life atleast.
