hey guys, im having a problem with my comp and ive tried a lot to fix it but have had no luck, this is whats happening..

First, when I boot the computer, sometimes it just doesnt boot. The fan turns on, the hdd spins but nothing happens.

Then recently, i've been getting crashes. I can usually run fine for a few hours, then it crashes. No bsod, it just freezes. Then the same problem(comp wont turn on) I listed above happens, if I try like 50x in a row, eventually it'll work and windows will start.

If I leave the computer off for like 30 minutes, it will boot everytime, but even if the comp has been on for 10 minutes, i'll have to leave the computer off for like 30min before it will boot up again

Some things ive tried to fix it:

format, blow fan on inside, re-seat cards and check connectors, all no luck

PLEASE HELP!!

512 ram
chaintech ct-skt600 mobo
amd 2200ghz

You may have the transformer or capacitor in the power supply going bad. Do you have another PS you can try? Can you get voltage readings? If you have a used computer store near by, you maybe able to purchase a used PS for as little as $10.

The last time I had something similar to that, I was getting random freezes, but it wouldn't shut down.

After booting to another HDD, I started removing everything connected to my mainboard, including memory.

Turned out to be a bad Proc; as soon as I swapped the processor, this system hasn't had a glitch. This one I'm using right now...
First, I would remove any external devices like printers, jump drives, etc. Then I would remove every device from the mainboard that you can without and still boot. If you still get freezes, I would look at the memory and processor before the power supply. Usually those are all or nothing.
