Most often when i go to power up my computer the fans and lights go on for ~1/2 second then the computer powers down, and i then have to unplug it and plug it back in and try again (it then usually works with 2-3 tries).
I am not too sure but it sounds like I may not have enough power.... I am running:
Intel 630 3.0 GHz, 800MHz FSB ...
1 GB Corsair xms PC4000
74GD WD Raptor
XFX Geforce 6800XT
2 CD drives, 1 floppy
3 case fans (CASE: RAIDMAX Scorpio 868**)
Scythe KATANA CPU fan
500W PSU* **
*my PSU is 20pin, but i have a convert to switch it to 24
** the computer maker quoted this on my system, i forgot to check what the PSU accually says on it, but lets assume its 500w:
"cp: RaidMax "Z" w/Backlit "Z" 420W PSU (Blue)
ps: 500w ATX PS w/ Dual Blue LED Fans"
what does everyone think?
thanks in advance
