Question about Computers & Internet
I had an overheating problem which caused me to take apart and clean my components and then re-load my XP-Home operating system. The computer has an Athlon XP 3000 processor and a 500 watt Ultra power supply. My problem is that after a normal shutdown by XP, the system will not re-boot. If you select the re-start option in XP, the system re-boots normally. If you turn the main power off(on the power supply) and then press the "on" button on the case- the system re-starts. Does this sound like a problem with the case switch(Ultra) or possibly the motherboard? Any solution?
Sounds like a power supply problem although I have seen the same thing with a motherboard that is beginning to fail. Try a differtent powersupply, that would either fix the problem or eliminate it.

Tips for a great answer:
Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps
