    Hello everyone,

    I seem to have a rather unusual problem while trying to power up my PC. As usual, last night i unplugged the power strip where my PC is connected and today´s morning when i connected it to the wall socket i tried to power up my PC but with no success. I noticed both the power led on the motherboard and mouse were on but with an usual twist, they were intermittent (fast but noticeable) and as soon as they went back to normal mode (no more intermittency) i was able to power up the PC and all was good with the exception of W7 detecting "new" HW, the network card which wasn´t working properly. Later today i turned him on, again had all the same symptoms including the HW detection but this time the network card was working properly.

    If i use stressing SW like Prime95 everything works fine so this problem only manifests itself when i turn electricity on which is mind blogging to me.

    I tested the wall socket, power strip and the power cable and all are working fine so i guess it comes down to either the 2 year old mobo or psu, in either case right now i´m kinda out of ideas so any tip is more than welcome!

    Specs: LC 700W Hyperion P6T Deluxe v2
