My gaming rig has worked fine for just over 3 years, but 2 weeks ago the power started stuttering during boot; all case lights are flickering and I can hear the fans, HDD and dvd driver having a hard time as well, accompanied by the eerie sound of electricity jumping.
Strange thing is, after about 20-30 seconds the thing quiets down and boots normally (although quite slow).
I kinda hope not to have to buy a new power supply 'cause the heavier ones are quite expensive.
A simple fix with a hammer would be preferable, but I somehow doubt that will work.
(On a side note, resetting my modem from the browser causes the pc to crash....)
