Odd behaviour of CPU fan

Here's the thing: the CPU fan doesn't start properly at 1st boot up (sounds like it's trying to spin but failing), but if I power down immediately and restart it runs fine. I've replaced the fan but still the same problem. Any suggestions? Could it be a power supply issue? I'm confused!

(Athlon xp2220, Asus 7s333 mobo, recently installed Audigy card, no wires etc in the way)

What wattage is the power supply?

Not sure, I'm at work at the moment. I'll check later. It's a Carrera Octan Ultimate if that's any good.
