    Hi, I recently built my first rig and now when I press the power button the computer won't turn on. However if I remove the power cable from the back for about 20 seconds and then reconnect it, it does turn on. Anyone have any ideas about this? Any help is much appreciated :)

    It stays on indefinitely, like a computer normaly would, which is why I think this problem is weird. Also hitting the reset button rather than unplugging the power cable seems to allow me to turn it on...strange.

    If this PBLM. has been happening from the first time you started up the system I think you might have the front panel switches connected wrong.Check your RE SET- PWRSW-and other connections from your Mother board to power supply.

    You need a better power supply. When you shut down and pull the plug you are resetting it but sooner or later that will no longer work either. Psu is where most users don't get it. You need to buy the best brand made like Antec, Thermaltake or Enermax, and not worry about
    wattage on generics or unknowns.
