Hi, i'm having trouble booting my computer up. When i try to boot it up, it shuts off by itself after a few seconds. If it goes longer, it gets to about the Windows loading screen, and then the monitor says "No Source" and then i have to reboot again. I usually have to repeat this process 10x or better every time i start it up after it has been shut down. I occasionally hear little ticks or whines in the case while the windows booting screen starts loading. Any ideas?

Hard disk Drive?

Yep...sounds like a hard drive. Can you check the SMART status in the BIOS? If you can't find it try downloading Everest, open it and click on computer in the screen on the right, click on summary, go down to storage and check the hard drive SMART status.

SMART Hard Disks Status: Unknown

Turns out it was the power supply. It came with the Xion II (Black w/ green lights) case. I just bought a new 500watt Smart Power supply and its running like a charm :)
