So anyway usual startup, I think the power supply button at the back which turns the power on and off was halfway to the off side (dont ask why, might of been my chair or something or it hit something ) and while starting up the computer just turns off. I find out that the switch went off =( I think I nudged my pc a bit and it just turned off. So i turn the switch goes back on, and i turn it on no problems - then i get the screen that usually gives u an option to 'Start Windows Normally, Last Good Configuration Known, Safe Mode..' etc. tells you about power failure and everything. So i choose start windows normally and after the loading screen at Windows XP finishes, I am not greeted by my welcoming screen but the usual Monitor message saying 'Cable not connected' (as it usually does when i turn off my PC) and then the pc just restarts! Same process, same error screen to tell me what option. Needless to say of course I tried the others, Last known Configuration, Safe Mode, Safe mode with networking and Safe mode with Command Prompt. All gave me the last result.
Im thinking its maybe a PSU/Motherboard, maybe hardware? Or is there soemthing else i can try o.O. Anyway this just reminds me when you kinda leave a light switch halfway, and move the switch kinda halfway between the on and off places, giving the light a flicking sensation! PSU Shortcircuited? Im guessing in usual PSU problems sometimes the PC wont even startup at all?? My pc manges to get to the Windows XP Loading screen and not stop in the middle of it.. not enough power to start it all up? ;o
FILL ME IN WITH PC INSIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
