  1. Hey all,

    i have a small problem with my computer, :bounce: and it has something to do with booting i presume... my guess is the power supply. When i hit the power, the computer turns on for about half a second then shuts off(it doesnt even go through post... just starts up, then imediatly shuts off...) the computer when through some shipping, and got banged around, no hard drive problem.... and all the wires are plugged in right... i deffenatly think its the power supply though now...... any help would be appreciated..

    did you try to disconnect everythig but your viedo card & 1 stick of ram. Also try your ram in a diff. slot or swap out the ram w/anothe stick.

    Hmm, sounds like something shorting, did you make ANY changes at the time the problems started to happen?
