slow starter

  Mrobjojo 10:45 17 Jul 2008

a mates pc is a bit poorly, when he pushes the power button one of the fan start up,then its about 5 mins before anything else happens.after 5 min all the fans start and pc boots up.
if he shuts it down again then restarts it, it starts up straight away,all i know about his pc,is its quite old,windows xp,512 ram,and i think 1.3 ghz prossesor,my guess would be the psu but not sure,thanks
