  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?

    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 :)
