    Hi
    I am having a problem with my desktop,
    I am running Window Vista
    Cpu AMD 4600 Athalon X2
    MB is Gigabyte ga-m55sli-s4
    vid card is GeFORCE 8800 GTS
    1GB DDR2 ram
    all these components are no more than 4 months old

    all was fine until today cpu turns on redlight (power) and Green Light (hdd) stays lit but nothing comes on screen not even bios, the PSU is only 420 W, my question is
    Is it safe to assume that i need a new PSU with more wattage, i know when i bought vid card the guy said i may need to upgrade

    Im just hopin that some could reaffirm what my thoguhts are before i go out and buy somethign i dont need

    thanks for taking time to reply

    I'd try opening the case and making sure all connections are tight and reseat the vid card and memory.
