Computer prblem

i start this computer it fires up for a few secs then stops and wont start again for about 5 mins. But sometimes it fires up fine.

seems to run fine onceit gets past 1st base

could be a power supply issue

ok ill check that out.
Could it be the mobo detecing the fan not working and not allowing the computer to boot. Not to sure if that happens?

well if i was you id get a working fan installed regardless

Snap! I posted about a problem like this a week or so back…general opinion was the PSU.

Of course, it’s booted fine all this week, so the new PSU is on standby.
