Power Supply failure?
I was using my desktop computer in the middle of a windstorm, because I'm silly like that sometimes. The power flickered often causing my computer to restart a few times. Some time later in the day when the storm had passed, however, the computer restarted again and continued to do so rapidly and repeatedly, usually before ever getting to the Windows XP bootscreen. Finally I flipped the switch on the back to force it to shutdown. When I tried again a few hours later, however, no part of the computer would turn on anymore at all (and I tried the switch in the back in both positions several times, so it's not a matter of forgetting flip it back).
I'm thinking/hoping my computer's power supply died. Would that seem like a good explanation to you folks? And if so, what's the good name in power supplies, and what compatability issues are there to consider when buying a replacement, if any? Do they come in different sizes, etc.?
Thank you, sirs and madams.
