PSU Problem?

Hello, well a few months ago I pressed the power on button on my case and my PC wouldn't turn on for about 5 seconds, then I would receive a message on startup telling me about a power surge was detected on previous power on. It happened only a couple times and I didn't really worry about it. This hasn't happened for about 7-8 months now.

Earlier this morning I powered on my PC like normal and it did this again. It wouldn't power on for about 5-10 seconds, no fan spinning or anything. But this time I didn't receive any message telling me about power surges during my previous power on. I read that alot of people are saying it's something with my MB.

Is this most likely a sign that my PSU is going out, or should I just not worry about it?

There must be some reason why Rosewill has discontinued the whole Green Series lineup.

got a quality award. think again electric man :p 

An award doesn't guarantee reliability. No review site tests for reliability.

I prefer that a model be reviewed by at least two or more reputable review sites. Corroboration of results is always good.
