November 24th, 2010, 01:28 AM
Hi, Im extremely new to the linux OS and so far i love it. i recently got a barebones kit and started building my pc. its been together for about a week now and just the other day i started getting a startup issue. not all the time but sometimes when i hit the power switch on the tower to fire up my comp, the psu and the fans will start to spin but when the beep for bios beeps the whole comp shuts down. The power supply i have is the cheap atx 450w that came with the case. im thinking (more hoping) that it is a power supply issuye but thought id try the forum to get some more opinions. thank you in advance for any input.
