    Hello all,

    I'm having this really weird problem. When I turn my computer off at night, the next morning, it seems to have trouble turning back on. I will hit the power key, and it will start up, then it will beep, turn off and reset.

    And it will keep doing this, over and over again, running a bit longer each time, until it eventually loads windows and is running normally, then it won't have any more problems, unless I turn it off again.

    Like now, it's completely loading, and having no issues with anything. It's just when I leave the computer off overnight and then turn it back on that this happens.

    Any Ideas?

    seems like a nice system with a decent power supply.....can u borrow or try another power supply to troubleshoot????
    u could even buy one and test (then return it)

    after some reading online that power supply might not be up to the job!!!
    many on this forum suggest this psu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139021

    Ok are you sure? Because I haven't added anything to the system, it's been running for ages, the last thing added was months ago, and it only just started having this problem.

    I believe Replay has given you some good advice. Keep in mind the PSU is the most important part of your system. A good PSU comes with a 5 to 7 year warranty. Here is a good spot for keeping up on the latest and greatest.

    To help us help you,please use the TSG System Info tool to let Tech's know the specs of your computer: http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe Copy and paste the results here in your thread. You can use the TSG Info to fill in your computer information in your user profile as well.

    Also, if its a brand name system like an Acer,Dell or HP, please post the exact model of the system.
