Failing power supplies are common..
If you can,
- try connecting another power supply with a wattage capacity of the same size or higher
- or, better still, try the power supply with another working computer, that your power supply has enough wattage capacity for.

If your mboard is not new (usually the mboard is at least 2 years old when this happens)......

Some mboards develop this problem - electrolytic capacitors were installed on them that were not properly made, and they fail eventually - the mboard manufacturer didn't know they were improperly made at the time the mboard was made.

Open up your case and examine the mboard to see if you have bad capacitors, and/or other findable signs of mboard damage .

What to look for, mboard symptoms, example pictures:

- what the problem is caused by
- he says there are STILL bad capacitors on more recent mboards.

Pictures of blown capacitors, other components, power supplies, fried Athlon cpus, etc.:
