Help Needed

I recently upgraded my entire computer. It works very well except for one weird problem. When I boot it up after it being off a while, it sometimes seems to start, but I get no display. When I kill it and start it again, I get a long beep, still no display. If I kill it and start again, its fine. That seems to be the pattern. Any ideas?

No experience with that board, but it kind of sounds like a power supply that is just barely powerful enough. What kind are you using and is it AMD approved?

yeah check the power supply, it often happens wit ATX supplies.

not sure of the exact type. It is a 300W that came with my Inwin Q500 full tower.

That should be a powerman FSP250-60GTA with a 2.0A +5vSB which is BARELY enough to run your components.

If it it does not indicate at least 2.0A on the +5vSB, you want to change it out anyway. Take a look at the thread in this section entitled: "How much power does it use?"
