Question about AOpen AX45-V (91.88I10.004) Motherboard
I have a AX45-v aopen motherboard, p4 chip, ATX-250gu power supply, win XP with 1GB RAM. The problem is my pc won't power up all the time. 1st attempt at powering up, the HDD light and cpu fan turn on, the second attempt, the power light, hdd light and cpu fan turn on, I have to unplug the pc, leave it for 15-30 mins and plug it back it and it will boot up. I have checked my hard drive for errors viruses etc. NONE. I have replace the motherboard, as I was told my a tech that it was the problem but the pc is still behaving this way. I checked all the cards, ram, and componets and everything is tight.
Now the hard drive seems to be shutting off, I think. I think it is the hard drive as my monitor is configured to shut down into sleep mode when there is no signal from the computer, but the fan and lights are still on. The crashes seems random, I checked the systems logs and ran every possible system/program check that I have to check the hard drive and it found nothing wrong so I have come to the conclusion that it is hardware related. Several times when the hard drive has shut off, I can turn the pc on again right away, which contradicts the first problem I had above. Could it be that my power supply is failing to provide the proper power to the computer? Or could it be the hard drive itself?
Thanks for the help
Replace your power supply, you need to upgrade this to at least 500watts to avoid problem like this, there is no problem with your hard drive its your power supply

CHANGE THE POWER SUPPLAY.. BUT FIRTH..
1-UNPLUG HD AND TEST WITH FLOPPY OR CD BOOT DISK
2-UNPLUG YOUR MEDIA ROOM LIKE CD OR DVD AND TEST ONLY WITH FLOPPY BOOT DISK
3-UNPLUG VIDEO CARD AND ALL CARD ON YOUR MOTHERBOARD.. TEST ONLY WITH THE FLOPPY DISK AND ONBOARD VGA.. OR GOOD TESTED VGA CARD.
