About half a year ago i upgraded my PSU and brought a Graphics card for my pc.
Shortly after one of the blue fans at the front of my pc stopped worked. I thought it had just died, so i did not worry too much.

I went to my friends place for a lan and suddenly it started work again :)  I thought that this was cause he lives up a gravel road and my pc got knocked around a little.

When i got home and connected my pc up again the fan stopped working again?
Any ideas...

Its easier to imagine a loose connection than it is to suspect your psu can drive a pc with power requirements varying by at *least* 50W, but not run a very low power fan . . . at any time . . . only while at your house.

Try giving the fan a kick-start with your finger . . . while the pc is running . . . at your house. It may not be able to start up from one specific stopped position.

Loose connection, or stuck fan top the list. Can't imagine a power problem that can possibly do that.

Was there an *extreme* temperature difference (affecting the PC) between the two houses?

Tried kick starting in in both directions... still not going.
Ill have a look at the connection tomorrow.
It would have been cooler if anything.

Sure sounds like a problem with the connection or fan itself more than a power issue, since after all like twoboxer mentioned it would be odd for the power issue to display on a silly little fan lol
