Frustrating & Random Turning on and off
Yet another problem (this is defninitely not my week)
(specs a8n-sli deluxe mobo, athlon 64 3800+, Hiper 580w PSU, 1 Gb PC3200 Ram, Ati x800 GTO2, 80GB SATA HDD)
Basically, everything's in the case and connected, so I turn on the power (i.e. I turn on the switch at the back of the PSU) and before I've pressed the 'ON' button fans start spinning, then stop after a couple of seconds. It refuses to respond to me pressing the 'ON' button, both after it stops spinning and while it's spinning.
I hope yea olde forumites can help me out once again!
(at least this process is helping me learn this stuff, so that I, in turn, can help other young padawans to reach the state of PC troubleshooting euphoria)
