Default Delay in booting up.

Good day folks, OK, I am working on a PC that delays in powering up.

The system is a Gigabyte GA-8IK1100 & P4 running on XP Pro.

There is a G force 5900 Video card that is failing. The fans do not function and the temperature gets overheated. My multimeter also measured the voltage a little above 5 and 12 volts. The card takes 12 volts and a power error message also displays during the OS boot up.

I advised the client to buy a power supply of 480 W. I installed it and other areas of performance improved.

I eliminated the main components as the problems. I also changed the battery for CMOS.

I took out the video card and put in mine and it worked instantly, but the problem still persisted after a couple of boot ups.

That problem? A delay in booting up.

The case wires work, but it could be a short in electricity from the front case to the motherboard. I cannot get into that part of the case itself.

OK your turn folks.......
