This time it did the same thing... I turned it on and my power supply made a loud buzzing hum for about 20 seconds and than went back to normal. For some reason it starts buzzing as soon as I turn on my pc, and than goes silent (like normal) when the boot shows the windows xp password login screen.
I turned off my pc again... waited for a bit, and than pressed the power button. It did it once again and went away when the windows xp password login screen shows up!
Hmm this time I decided to restart the pc, not turn it off and power it up. So I restarted and it didn't do it. Hmm so this time I turned my pc off and waited a bit...
I pressed the power button quite firmly and the pc booted with no problem or buzzing sound. Now I've come to let you all know about this and want feedback as to what may be happening.
The airflow comming out of the psu is perfectly fine. The back of my pc is set half a foot from the wall. This psu is new and I bought it about 6 months ago. & I use a compressed can of air on my pc every month and a half or two.
Maybe it's because I always kind of tap the power button instead of pressing it firmly as I did the last time???
Anyways I'm off to bed. Hope to hear from you all.
