Last night I left my pc on as I always do.
This morning I tried starting my pc but it only let the fans work for about 1 second.
After that second the fans turned off and nothing happened anymore.
Does anyone know what my problem is and know how to fix it?

Hello Thimoyahh,

Has been there any power outage in the area that you live in? I'm asking this because any unexpected cut off or storm could damage your PC while you sleep.
Anyway, you can try a couple of things and the first one is to unplug the PSU for a while and to press the start button in order to discharge if any electricity has left in the motherboard. Hold the button for about 30 secs., then leave it to plug the power supply unit back in.Try to boot normally.
If that doesn't help, unplug the the PSU again, take out the CMOS battery for some 10 mins. And replace it with a new one if you have. If you don't just plug it back in after 10 mins. and plug the PSU also. Try to boot.

Let me know what happened. Cheers.

I found out that my psu is broken with a little test I found on youtube.
I think there indeed was a power outage that caused the problem.
Usually I stay in my house but this time I moved my pc to my dads appartment and left it on overnight. Thats probably where the problems started, but I am sending it back to the store and I am getting a new psu.
