Boot issue

I'm having issues with my PC. I was sitting in my community's VOIP browsing the internet for Skyrim SE mods and all the sudden my PC just crashed. No blue screen or anything. I turned it back on and it just started up, got past the BIOS and then shuts back down. Unplugged/plugged everything and tried it again and same results. Very seldomly it gets past the BIOS and get's to a Win10 screen saying repairing installation, once it gets there it shuts down before any options get selected. I tried to boot it in safe mode, and it shuts down even before I can select safe mode.

I put in the system restore disc and manage to get it into boot options and whenever I try to select the disc or even a different HDD with a windows install in it, it still shuts down.

Anyone know what could be causing it?

Tell more about this PC.

My old desktop did that when the heatsink fell off.

Liquid cooled

I don't really have a heatsink, using a Corsair H110i liquid cooler which is basically bolted down to the mobo. It'd be next to impossible for it to fall off unless the mobo cracked in half where the bolts are lol.

Then the news is grim.

Taking the big picture at the shops it's usually the motherboard. But you don't know until you pop in the new board.

The machine could also have a failed PSU but that we can quickly test by either a PSU tester or connecting a new one.

I tink this happen to a couple time also.

As I recalled I think replacing BIOS battery fixed one and the other one was an disc drive (believe it or not). In other word, it could be almost anything.
