i finished building my pc about two weeks ago, and ive only hibernated once before, but last night when i did hibernate, it did as usual and nomarl, however, when i pressed the on button this morning...nothing happened, no fans, no led lights, nothing!, so i unplugged it all dya and got back a lil ago..and still no power, ive tried different outlets, nothing, everything works fine, monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, so it wasnt a surge problem, but idk how to tell if its my NEW 500 watts power supply

check all the cables are tight (not loose). Then try again

I've had that problem before, it ended up being the video card driver. Make sure your drivers are WHQL certified. Took along time to figure it out done a fresh install and loaded each driver one at a time,testing it each time I loaded something new. I was very surprised to find the video card driver would cause that problem.

Take a good look at the SeaSonics..their quite, reliable, and they are SLI or X-fire certified.
Otherwise my other choice would be Enermax. The nice thing about those PSU's is the wiring is set up so that you only plug in what you need (ie you plug one end in PSU, the other end goes to componant) That way there is less wiring that needs to be tucked away after you finish hookin everything up. There is always at least 1 or 2 fan dongles, and at least 1 SATA cable power wire that is not used. Unless your running 4 hdd's or more. Another thing I like about the Enermax is the extra length they give you for the wires.
Anyway, hope this helps bro, good luck

wait a second..you said you have 2 7300GTs.....why exactly?
September 1, 2006 12:29:32 AM

cause im an IDIOT...i bought two of those..and a couple of days later, the 7600 went down on price and i already had thrown away all my boxes and manuals and stuff..so there was no way for me to return them...o well..they still work pretty nicely

Umm, well...don't use the hybernation feature. IMO it's one of the most worthless features of XP.

I often wondered why it was even there

Um i said that because 7300 gts in sli is a complete waste of money... :roll:

how come
September 4, 2006 2:53:56 AM

Because for the price of two 7300 gts you could have gotten one 7600 gt which pretty much wins any benchmark between the two setups. Sli doesnt double your performance..and even if it did a 7300 gt is crap compared to a 7600 gt...or better if you would have gotten a motherboard w/o sli and saved cash you maybe could of had enough for a 7900 gt which would beat 7600 gts in sli in most benchmarks..ok im done rambling.
