    Power Supply starts and stops? makes the computer start and stop too. Just awhile ago my computer were running perfectly fine. I get it to start sometimes if I let it run for a hour.. but mostly it just turns on and off.

    and when I finally get to start my computer non of the monitors works. Please answer! As I said, the computer worked perfectly fine a few weeks ago, was on holliday and i just found this issue, so nothing is wrong how I built the computer. Thanks! <3

    Is this a custom built or pre-built machine?

    Sounds like a typical case of a dying PSU.

    Buy a new PSU? Or claim a RMA if it's still under warranty.
    Hard to say really. PSU failures can range from very sudden failures with no symptoms to obvious symptoms showing a slowly dying PSU.
    It could be a bad unit, or it got hit with a massive power surge.

    Brand new build just a few days old? I would say grounding issue somewhere. Did you use the standoffs between motherboard and case?

    I would try a different power supply first. If you are going to gone for any period time always unplug computer in case of power surge, storm, etc.
