Hi! I got a prob with my rig! Randomly, when I switch on, it doesnt POST. No beep code, no nothing, but all drives and fans power up. If I then switch it off and back on, it then POST's. Any idea's? I cant find any loose connections!
Its PIII 550MHz Katmai
Abit BE6-II
Geforce2 GTS OEM
Soundblaster Audigy Player
Seagate 8GB
235watt PSU

Any suggestions would be good!
It is not overclocked

i sometimes have the same problem. i have just learned to live with it. 300 watt power supply wouldnt hurt though.

i went to the tomshardware forums and all i got was this lousy signature.

well u could try reseating all your cables and cards...
but i also think a slightly better powersupply wouldnt hurt.

P.S. does it do it more in warm weather? ever during warm boots?

The lack of thermal protection on Athlon's is cunning way to stop morons from using AMD. :)

Could be caused by high temps (after reboot) or a bad powersupply.

My case has so many fans that it hovers above the ground :eek:  .
