    Hello,
    Heres my problem, I have an Athlon 750 on an Abit KA7, and when i start my computer, it starts to boot, then shuts off. I have to repeat this until my 7th-9th try, and then it stays on...
    Now would this be a problem with my power supply? Or something a lil more serious? Any help greatly appreciated!
    Thanks for your time.

    Hi Dan!

    If you suspect a PSU problem, list all the hardware you have, all the drives and all the fans, memory.

    The tell us exactly the rating of your PSU, for example, 250W, 340W or whatever.

    And when you say it starts to boot, does it do a POST? Do you get a beep, then it fails?
