Good evening.. Im having a really serious problem with my power supply, I think...


New build 2 months old.

I turn off my PC before I goto bed, the PC is on for about 14 17 hours a day... When I wake up in the morning, I'm an able to turn on the PC.. I would have to unplug the PC or restart the Surge Protecter, then it will turn on.

My router is powered on and a blue light insdie the PC is on. But nothing starts.. Not even fans.. DEAD! unless I do the steps above..

I tried 3 different power protecters and outlets.... Im still getting the same thing...
Im in very serious need of help or suggestions.. Thank you for taking the time out and helping..!

My Setup :

XP Home
EVGA 680i A1 P28 BIOS
OCZ GameXStream OCZ850GXSSLI ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 850Watts
Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 Conroe 2.66GHz LGA 775
X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Professional Series
NZXT Zero Black/Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower
4GB CORSAIR PC2-8500 CAS5 1066Mhz
ZALMAN 9700NT 110mm

I have just come here with the same (ish) issue... A PC that will not power on unless the power input at the wall socket is turned off for 5 seconds, does this look like a PSU issue???

Both sounds like PSU issues, try another PSU and see if that solves the problem. If you don't have an extra PSU and can't borrow on, go to a store that doesn't have a re-stocking charge if you can find one, buy a PSU and if it doesn't solve the problem, return it. Of course it's likely because of people like me that there are re-stocking charges :sarcastic:
