Computer Powers CPU/GPU, but no case lights/fan/monitor etc.


When I press the power button on the case the computer sounds like it powers up but nothing happens.

On closer inspection -
The CPU fan is going
The GPU is lit up as normal
However the back fan isn't moving and there's no light on the cases power indicators.

The case must be linked up right since the power button works?

I've tried unplugging/replugging the power button/led/reset switch section, the case fan option and the main 24(?) pin power on the motherboard, but still the same once booted up

It was working fine until it went into sleep mode today, then refused to get out of it and is just like this once restarted...

Could any one advise?

Many Thanks in advance!!
