  1. hi peeps got a shuttle x AMD 1.2ghz mini pc here, and when we power it up it can take 5 minutes before the power kicks in! the LED's on the front dont even come on,as if it is dead! Then all of a sudden TA-DAAAA its on! It oncetook 14 minutes before the power kicked in, never heard of this happening before?!!!

    What do you think guys?
    Thanks


    2nd Note.

    Opened the case to have a look and now the fan turns for a second or two and nothing happenes so i presume it maybe the psu???

    Thats what it sounds like to me.

    Alternatively you could just not shut down that system :)
