Is it the Power Suppy?
rhshag Feb-16-02 09:07 PM
My computer(athlon 1.2ghz, hercules 65mb video card, maxtor 40 gig 7200 hard drive and so on), wont turn on at least for more than a few seconds. I recently changed the cpu fan from a volcano 2 to a volcano 7 and it booted up fine. But I went to turn it on last night and it just turns on for about 3-4 seconds and shuts right back off. No other changes were made to the computer other than the cpu fan.
Thanks for any input.

It could be the power supply, but it is usually a short somewhere tripping-out the power supply. Pick the computer up, shake it, and listen for a loose screw. More steps are at http://duxcw.com/faq/mb/mb.htm. Larry
