So i decided to take it home with me. Ok so i just took the tower itself and the power supply cable. I hocked up my monitor to it, mouse, keyboard, and thats it. I turned it on, and the same thing was happening. I turned it off and on like 5 times, and then finally the monitor worked, and i was able to use the pc, i even went online with it. so i guessed everything was ok, so call him and he picks it up.
But it turns out it still didnt work when it was at his house. We even tried different monitors over there and nothing. I said i thought it was the power strip, since he has the power strip connected to a cheap brown extension, but he insists that hes been using that setup for a while, and nothing ever happened.
So i took it back with me. At first the monitor would not turn on, but after 3 tries it did. I found that wierd. Also something important is that the pc itself talks, through the internal speaker. It said something about the processor and discharge, but i cant hear it cause of the fan. So it started working normally and everything, even the dvd drives were opening, i even installed a usb webcam he was having problems with.
Now its funny because when i disconnect the power cable to the tower and i put it back in, the monitor DOES NOT turn on after the 1st try, instead it turns on aduring the 2nd try. I've tried this 3 times, with the same result. I left the computer connected over night, and i just turned it on, and everything is working perfectly.
So what could be the problem, because i'm stumpped completely. Thanks in advance
