PC not booting after shutting down

October 25, 2010 at 05:45:57
Specs: Windows XP, Core 2 duo E7500/2X2 GB kingston
Hi,
When I try to start my PC an hour or more after shutting down, it is not booting. Power is on and all fans inside the cabinet are working, and the voltages seems to be normal in the SMPS. If I wait for more than four to five hours it will start working, or only the next morning. I tried resetting the CMOS, but to no avail. Tried also opening the side cover and force cooling, but no joy. My config is: Core 2 duo E7500, Intel DG41RQ , GeForce 9600GT graphics, 2X2 GB Kingston, Gigabyte GE-R460-V1 power supply, LG DVD, Syncmaster 2033 monitor. Mine is XP SP2, Avast anti virus, and Spybot search and destroy.

Please help

I would try swapping out the power supply 1st. A failing power supply places lots of havoc on a PC.

Also maybe run a memtest on your Ram to see if that is working properly.

You can also open up the PC and check the capacitors on the motherboard, if you see any bulging or leaking ones that could maean the motherboard is worn out.

I said to try a new power supply as that is the most inexpensive route to start...save the heavy hitters for last ;-)
