System specs: i7 950 @stock Asus P6T SE mobo Radeon HD5870 Antec earthwatts 650w green
My computer wont boot sometimes(!)(no video signal, mouse and keyboard leds off) I recently changed the mobo because I thought a leaking capacitor was causing my problems. With the new mobo installed it still wont boot most of the time, the only thing that seems to work is CMOS clearance but I have to do this every single time.
When the system boots I can run all my games just fine and temperatures of all components stay in the normal ranges..
Does this sound like a bad PSU problem? And if it is a bad PSU, how come Clear CMOS makes it boot and work just fine? Will I eventually trash my system if I keep doing this? I might also add that I am using an ungrounded power socket.

it indeed sounds like a bad PSU. i dont think that it being ungrounded would make that much trouble. i would chunk it and get a new one.
Howcome the computer does boot when i clear CMOS?
do you have any programs that overclock when you boot up your computer like afterburner or overdrive?
