Wont boot after power cut.

December 26, 2012 at 13:51:23
Specs: Windows 7 64 Ultimate, Quad Core 6GB Ram
Everytime there is a powercut or even if I unplug my PC, it wont switch back on properly. At first it goes into a loop power supply going on and off after about ten seconds. Then when that stops it just wont do that beep that signals that its starting boot up. Sometimes disconnecting the HDD helps, sometimes taking out all the RAM and sometimes it just takes hours of trying to get it started. Any suggestions what could be at fault?

I'd pretty much bet your power supply is fading fast.

PC switched on this time after a lot of playing around with the power switch and the power supply on/off button. had most components out and there were no beeps, until finally got the RAM beep going.

EZ cool power supply is the time bomb and when it goes off it will take some components out.
Replace it with this Rosewill unit

In support to what @ kuwese said, I advise you introduce a power cord with fuse to electric power outlet so that only fuse would be affected in future.

Thanks
