Hi All, I have a Gateway SX-2800 PC that has been having problems with turning on. When I push the power button (or send a magic packet for WOL), the power light turns on and the fan does as well, but nothing else happens. I have to turn off, then turn on again (sometimes several times) before the PC begins booting. This is a common problem with this machine, as I've seen in Googling the issue.
Thinking the PSU needed replacement, I tried this. The problem was worse (perhaps a lower quality replacement unit?), so I reinstalled the original PSU. I have checked all connections within it, and can't see what could otherwise be the problem.
Should I upgrade the PSU? Is it possible that there is not enough voltage? I have not otherwise modded the computer, and this problem is driving me nuts.
