While the PC is plugged into the wall, I unplugged the PSU from the PC and unplug the power plug to the MOBO wait about 15 - 20 secs for the power to drain (little green light on the PSU lets me know), plug it all back in and the whole system has power again. So I think I fix it but.......I unplug it, leave it overnight and in the morning I have the same problem of no power. So I repeat the steps above and it works again. Any ideas on what is going on, or what might be broken, would be appreciated.
Also, I dont know if this might be related, the system refuses to restart. When I restart, it acts fine, does the whole log off and system shutdown, then when it should post again it does nothing. Just sits there power on, fans spinning, and a black screen.
The shutdown feature works fine.
Win XP sp2
