  1. Hi.
    It's hard to turn my computer ON. Sometimes, If I turn it ON, it doesnt go to POST, no beeps, no video. But the CPU fans are turning and the power LEDs are shining. Sometimes the computer turns ON without any problems. :suspiciou
    It's hard to turn it ON if i just recently shutdown'ed the computer. Example:

    I shutdown the computer. Then after 5-10 minutes, I decided to turn it ON again. This time it wont turn ON. Just the fans and the leds turns ON. I'll have to wait 15mins - 1 hour before it turns ON again.

    Mobo : Asus CUSI-FX(n)
    1 SDRAM (128MB PC-133)
    Intel Celeron 700MHZ
    300W Generic Power Supply

    Your computer is .... well.... a senior citizen.

    Sometimes, it'll be a little hard to wake up and get out of bed, and it probably can't run any marathons.

    I think you should enjoy the time you have left with it, and allow it to rest when it wants to. Give it lots of love, so its final days are good ones. ;)

    Try a different psu, maybe a power problem or the cmos battery is recharging. This takes time. Maybe turn off the computer and leave it off for about 5 days to a week, turn it on for maybe 30 min., then shut it down, wait 5 min., try again.

    If this doesnt work, let me know.
