Desktop Malfunctioned

After I turn on the power of the CPU, it went off immediately. I think some parts are no longer functioning right or maybe there was misalignment of it. This desktop of mine is already almost seven years old. I don't have knowledge about computer repairs but I opened the CPU, touched some cables hoping that it will come back to life. For a while it's working now and I hope that it will not shut down again. I don't have a budget for the repairs and for acquiring new unit yet.

Maybe the pc is ready to 'retire'.

On no! Not yet as I cannot afford to buy a new unit yet. But if it goes that way, no choice.

@ZedSmart Happened to mine too. That how I had to purchased this laptop. There's nothing to do when they reach certain age where they can't no longer be upgraded or repaired.

Yes, I hope too because it will cost me money to get into the repair shop.

Change the CMOS battery, I am pretty sure it's the only problem, you need a button batter CR 2032, they are standard.

@ZedSmart In this case is not the CPU battery. I think it is the power supply, I changed mine last year, I paid around $30 for a new power supply.

My desktop is working fine. But that happened to my microwave this past weekend. I ended up getting a microwave.

Good that you're able to replace your oven immediately.

It’s quite old if you have it 7 years old. PC desktop usually is good only for 3-5 years before it will start malfunctioning already. I think you should start saving for replacement already because it may just conk out and stop already. If you have external hard drive better start doing backups of your data in your pc to be sure.

That's right. I think the ideal life span is five years.

7 years is a long time. Maybe it just tired. And take a nap.

Yes, I think the useful life of the desktop has been used up already.
