Hey! here's a strange case for you ;)
In the summer my computer started to act strange - beginning with a bad install of Vista (crap). Went back to XP and then the comp wouldent start up - I opend the case side and then suddently it worked. - This was fine for a while - then it wouldent start again - I tipped the case on the side - then voila. - This worked for a while - then nothing again.
So I figured it was probably the Powersupply - I mounted the hardware in a different case with a different Powerssupp. and it worked fine.
Got a new powersupply from the store and mounted the HW back in the old case.
But now it won't start again, The motherboard's light is on, and when i push the powerbutton the fans and everything works fine for 1 second - then nothing. - When i push the button again - absolutely nothing. Then I turn off the main power switch for a few secs until the motherboard light turns off - Try the button again and it works for another second.
I was thinking it could be the powebutton - but don't think som becouse it lights up for a second. - It's not the powersupply - it's brand new - and all the other parts works fine in a different case.....
I hope you can help me ;)
