    Computer runs 24/7 for weeks without problems.

    When I restart in the last few weeks the fans start, HD spins up, but no beep. Takes quite a few tries to get it to boot up and makes me scared it won't start one of these times.

    Had 2 BSOD's recently which I haven't had for years so it looks like things might finally be happening.

    Haven't seen any other problems yet. HD, graphics, etc all seems to work fine. Guessing the PSU may be dying or something.

    I'm not very knowledgeable about hardware so looking for informed opinions. :eek:

    When you are seeking help you need to post your system component specs. Motherboard; EXACT make, model and revision (if applicable). Processor; EXACT make, model and stepping. Memory; EXACT make and model. Graphics Card (if installed); EXACT make and model. Power Supply; EXACT make and model. Provide links to the components. Also post the operating system.

    If the machine is a mass produced machine such as Dell, Gateway, HP, etc. post the EXACT make and model as there may be known problems with certain makes and models.

    No one can diagnose a problem without knowing the EXACT components you used in the build or the EXACT make and model of a mass produced machine.
