ok...i have a computer that is sometimes having a problem booting...once in a while the power cord has to be unplugged to get it to power down from the initial press of the power button, then plug back in and it will start. During the boot up, the computer will show a overclocking failed or overvoltage failed error, then wanting to either press F1 to enter setup or F2 to continue bootup... Also, I haven't seen it as of yet, but have been told that the video start "folding" on itself and the computer cannot be shut off without unplugging it.

I am thinking the power supply is going bad, but I can use some expert opinions on this. Operating system is Windows XP SP2. AMI motherboard. thanks in advance.
