Here is a strange one... maybe -
When I first turn on my computer the monitor remains blank and the computer just flashes the CD & DVD lights and I think the HD light is also on but that's it. I tried to press the reset button but nothing happens. If I turn off my power strip and then turn it back on and turn on the computer it boots ok. What is going bad on my machine, the HD, power supply, or could it be the mother board?
