Hello, this is the first time I am posting so please excuse me if I am not in the right Category.
I've been having some trouble powering my PC lately. When I switch on the power and push the power button on the case, the system starts, but is powers down after about 5 seconds. Sometimes it does not even POST. I don't know what is causing this problem. Please reply. Thanks.
Now, my brother's having some problems with his PC. Sometimes when he starts the PC, it freezes on the POST screen. It detects the CPU and shows the CPUID thing under it. To make the system start, he has to reset. We've not been able to locate the problem yet. And the major problem is, the freeze does not occur everytime. We do not see a pattern in the freeze.
Do you have any ideas about what may cause this problem ?
