Default Mushkin 650 W Power supply? maybe?

Okay
my system is awesome. I love it.
I built it about 6-8 mo's ago and its been running strong and great video/gameplay.
anyways my problem is that when I have my computer off there is a odd humm/pause/humm noise coming from the power supply.
I cannot turn the computer on when it does this.
It starts the humm cycle after about 10 seconds of having been plugged into AC and it will not pwr on.
The only solution I have found is a workaround but it gets me going again and works fine.
I have to Power on the computer within the first 10 seconds of being powered by the AC.
Any Suggestions? Comments?


Thank You!

Switch out the power supply? Did it have a warranty? It sounds like perhaps the power supply has gone bad.

Have you dusted it lately? Maybe dust is gumming it up?
