first time poster, glad to be here!
My problem is as such: I've started encountering a strange issue where my PC seems to become unable to respond to it's power source, and doesn't want to boot up properly. For example, I'll put the thing into Sleep mode, and when i try to log back in, it won't respond, requiring me to manually shut it off. When I then try to power it back up, it will do one of 2 things;
-It will power up, but not actually boot and nothing will appear on the moniter.
-It will appear completely dead, as if there's no power running to it at all!
I've tried changing the power cords, replacing the power bar etc. but strangly enough, what seems to work so far, is unplugging the power cable from the power bar and into the wall or vice verca. Basically just switching the outlet's back and forth. 1 day the wall outlet will work, the next the power bar will work, and then vice verca. I know it's not a problem with my outlets, because the moniter, lamp, phone and everything else works fine through the same power source.
Has anyone else ever come across this? The machine specs are: P4 2.4, with a Geforce 4 4200ti, and 1 gig of Ram, Win 2K.
