Pc Not booting Up, All hardware start, even led, power button working, shuts down shortly after.

My pc has been experiencing BSODS concerning my RAM for a loooong time, and i just ignore them, yesterday was another story, pc kept getting BSODS, then starting normally but then got an exotic bsod something about Kernel lockup, and then it would boot but stick on mobo screen loading, thus used the power button, but after that whenever i tried to boot it it wouldnt display anything.

HDD Starts, LED Lights light up, ALL fans working, CD drive working.

What i've tried: Reinstalling CPU, Reinstalling GPU, Replugging most cables, Removed battery for over a minute, Removed power cord and held down power button for over a minute, Moved ram slots, tried each one of them in each slot, Checking if there is a short going on to no avail. Turning it on and off a million times. New power cord.

PSU is working, Cant hear beeps since i dont have the Beep-Boop Motherboard speaker. My chroma keyboard and mouse dont light up(maybe because it doesnt boot?). Also after about 1 minute the PC shuts itself down. Im guessing this indicates a lack of power?

EDIT: This might be unrelated but it would completely freeze while using it, needing me to power it off manually.

SPECS:
FX 8350(1 year old)
GTX 770(2 years old)
CORSAIR CX600 PSU (600W)(2 years old)
970A-UD3P GIABYTE motherboard(1 year old)
Corsair BALLISTIX 8gb RAM 1333mhz(about 3-4 years old)

So whats at fault here, the PSU or the MOBO? Last time i had this issue was my old PSU.

  1. Quite possible your CX600 (which is not a very good PSU) has degraded to where it cant power your GTX 770 anymore.

    What BSOD messages would you get ?

    fault in no paged area, SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION, IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL, KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED, are a few i can remember on top of my head, all of them occured frequently in some times, and then would go about 3-5 days without one.

    Ok. IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL can be system memory but can also be video card.

    So diagnosis stands, the first thing I would try is a different PSU. You can always buy one from a PC store and return it if it is not the problem.

  5. Hello.

    I'm no expert, but I had my first PC when I was in my early teens and now I am 46, so I've had quite a bit of experience with PCs. The fact that all the most important things are working, doesn't sound to me from your computer's specs as though it is a PSU problem. It could be that although your computer has 8Gb of RAM installed, one of the memory boards might have failed, so as the system on modern PCs requires 2 pairs of functioning RAM boards to boot-up, it won't boot up. Have you got 2 new/replacement RAM boards that you could try installing. If you do and your computer works properly, then you have your problem.

    First off, this post is 3 going on 4 weeks old with no further information from OP.

    Secondly, power draw is an on demand item. So the main board gets the power it needs but once the GPU starts to pull power and there is not enough juice left in the PSU then the system BSODs.

    The irql BSOD is more often GPU then system memory.
    If he had a cpu/motherboard with onboard graphics I would have suggested removing GPU and use integrated for testing, but unfortunately that is not an option.
    Now after testing with a known good power supply, if the issue persists then I would suggest running on 1 memory stick, swapping them around to test each stick (or using different memory if available as you suggested), and if the problem still persists then try a different GPU.
