a question about power
I am having a problem with a custom built pc that I put together about a half a year ago. The computer runs fine from a particular location (in this case my parentís house), but will not boot up from my apartment. It powers up but then shuts off after a few seconds.
My general specs: ASrock 770 Extreme3, PhenomII 955, Antec EarthWatts650, EVGA gtx460
A bit more info: I put this together last January and it ran fine in my apartment until the end of May when it simply quit posting. I took everything apart, put it back together but it still wouldnít post. After bringing to a different (my parents house) it booted up with no problems. This is the situation that I am still in right now: the computer wonít boot in my apartment but boots up fine at my parentís house.
I am guessing that the problem is something to do with the power in my apartment Ė but I donít know much about electrical problems. Anyone have any ideas? It seems strange that it would work for 5 months in my apartment and then just stop (while continuing to boot up in a different location?) Would a voltage regulator be of any help?
I appreciate any helpful advice I can get.
