Alienware x51 problem

Hi! When I try to start my Alienware x51 it will only start for about 3-5seconds and turn off(no beep code and the fans turns on). When I got it back from a repair shop where they checked it, they said: it is probably a faulty PSU

or the Motherboard. Need help! What is the problem and how could I fix it? Can I buy a new 330W PSU and it will 

work again?

Appreciate your answers! Smiley Very Happy

RE: Alienware x51 problem

If you still have warranty, you could get a replacement PSU, and if that doesn't fix the problem, a replacement mobo.

RE: Alienware x51 problem

I tried to change power supply (the one from my laptop) and same problem occurs. Is it a problem in the power

supply "port"(where i plug in the cord) or is it a fualty mobo then?
