Help help help Hello everyone, I shut down Sat. nite but Sun. morning it was like the machine was not plugged into the wall. After much doing I have been able to get it booted up. First I shorted green power on wire on the power supply to ground and it ran but did not boot. Next I checked the on/off switch its OK. Next I cleared the cmos with the jumper on the board and shorted the green wire and the machine booted OK and I was able to remove the short and the machine still operated and would shutdown with the on/off switch. However, I have to go through the whole procedure ( Clear cmos, short the green wire, un-short the green wire)each time to get booted. I have restored to last Aug. I have not ran AVG yet. I changed the bat. Joe
