Hi all! I’m having a weird problem that I don’t know how to diagnose
I have a good working system, however most of the components are ‘getting up there’ in age, about 4 years old.
In the last couple of days, I’ve noticed that when I push the power button on the pc, while the pc is off, sometimes a variety of things can happen:
• Fans and lights go on, but pc doesn’t boot!
• Once it got to the the dos boot screen and hung
• Usually it boots normally
So the problem is intermittent…I’m just nervous that something is ‘going’ and one day I won’t’ be able to boot at all!
I have run checks on the hard drives, and they all report their fine. I have run a few virus checks but found nothing.
Any advice for what to check? I know the above is pretty vague but that’s all I know!
i will try to next time i have the problem... that the thing, the problem is intermittent.
also, started a memtest before work but when i got home, the computer had rebooted or something...basically i didn't get to see results. i did run it again, but only for an hour and it got through pass one with no errors. will try again
