Thanks in advance for any help on this.
Just recently my computer doesn't turn on. The on/off switch initiates no POST or BOOT, however, an internal Mainboard light is on, indicating power coming to the board.
I've figured out that if I turn off the power supply unit's power in the back of the tower, wait a few seconds and turn it back on, the on/off switch works just fine.
- An overheating wire/connection to the on/off switch
- A Dysfunctional PSU
- A Bad Motherboard connection
Any ideas please post!
It's a new Mainboard, about 6 mos. old. Here are my relevant specs:
AMD Athlon XP 2000+
512 MB Ram
80 GB HDD
ABIT NF7-S2, NVIDIA nForce2 chipset, 400FSB
350 Watt PS
Nvidia GeForce 4 MMX 64 MB
Hauppauge WinTV 150*
*The capture card is the only recent hardware & software change I've made recently.
