    Was there any buildup on the connectors that touch the battery?

    You could try a different PSU. A failing PSU can cause all sorts of odd issues.

  10. It's way bigger than your system needs, but it's a nice PSU.

    You could've got it for $50 through newegg, but through a local store, you did good.
