Aries Computer (please no comments on Savastore) bought in August 2005 (ooo out of warranty)

Motherboard is an MSI RS480M2 Socket 939 (ATI 200P chipset)
Graphics card MSI NX6600GT VT2D128E
Athon XP64 3.0 GHz (1.7Ghz) at the stated speed
2 x 256Mb Aries PC3200 Value Ram
1 x 80Gb IBM/Hitachi IDE(PATA) System drive
1 x 120Gb IBM/hitachi IDE (PATA) games, storage etc drive
Sony DW-30 DVD RW IDE (PATA) drive
Hiper 350W PSU
Standard MS Mouse and keyboard (PS2)
1 WACOM Graphire tablet (PS2)

Windows XP Home (SP2.0) updated with all critical updates to last week except Explorer 7.0
Norton Anti-Virus all updated
Zonelabs Firewall
Until recently Windows Defender
Windows Washer

All data is saved to 7th December but none of my game updates or settings are saved.

All the other peripherals are independently powered


Has anybody had problems with Hiper 350 PSUs? Not booting up until the on/off switch is thrown?
Has anybody had this type of PSU failure (the CPU fan sometimes moves but the board doesn't start. Then after a while the system starts and runs all day.

Now have had one or two stop errors with problems on the graphics card twice freezing.
