I had my pc for about a year-working fine till now. (its an Asus motherboaRD,AMD 64 3200+,2x512 ram ddr). I was watchign a film on it last nite,was working fine. This morning switched it on as normal to check e-mail etc.
It bootted up fine, but then before it went to the windows logging screen it powered off. Clicking on the power button didnt work. to switch it back on again, i had to remove it from the mains and connect it again. Switched it back on and again it powered off at the same point.
I havent had the time yet to do any troubleshooting as i had to go to work, but i tried to log-in via safe mode, i log in normally and as soon as it tries to load window's it powers of again (no blue screen no nothing,just switches off and cant' switch it on until i remove it from the mains and reconnect it). i checked the CPU fan seems to be working fine.
I've heard some stuff on dodgy MOBO capacitors, but havent checked... any ideas anyone had something similar happen?
