PC Keeps Switching Off

  orangewhiteblue 09:05 22 Feb 2004

When I try to boot up my PC quite often - but not all the time - it shuts down. Some times it's immediately, some times the power supply fan has been going 10 seconds or somewhere in between. The lights are on and I have to hold the power button down until it has completely powered down. I may have to do this 6 or 7 times before it finally starts properly.

Has anyone any ideas what it might be. Its an oldish Athlon 800 on an Asus A7V motherboard.

Could you give us all your system specs such as your operating system, any peripherals fitted etc etc

Why are you holding the power button down all the time during start up?
