When i press the power button at the front of the tower I am now getting one of three occurrences.
1 Machine starts O.K. - no problem.
2 Fans a drives spin up for between .5 sec an 2 secs. then power disappears requiring a switch off/switch on at the mains plug and press power button on tower.
3 No response at all requiring the procedure outlined in 2.
It's a self build machine EpoxEP-8kmm3i mobo, 500w PSU, AMD Athlone XP 2400+ and when running shows temps of MoBo 31deg C, CPU 42 deg. C. I'm suspecting the power button on the front of the case is faulty which will mean a new case. Any ideas anyone before I take the thing to bits?
Try going in to the bios and look at the hardware monitor section to see if the fan speed monitor is set to shut down if CPU fan speed is to low if it is disable it as some M Boards will stop boot up if this is the case.
