Question about IBM ThinkCentre A51 PC Desktop
Sounds like it's probably the power supply. The computer takes more power to boot up than to run, so if it can't get enough wattage it can't boot all the way up, and it will shut down and try again.
If you're comfortable opening your computer up, you can test the power supply connectors with a voltmeter or multimeter to verify. A new power supply is typically only $30 or $40.

Testimonial: "Thanks a million! I suspected it was something related, but having just purchased the computer from Tiger Direct, I was under the impression that all equipment was properly tested and verified to be in working condition. I will simply return and have them ship out another. Thanks again! DC"
IBM ThinkCentre S51(8172) won't boot up. The power light comes on for about and then goes off. This repeats even with power button depressed. Unplugging is the only way to stop this. It is not the power supply...have tried two and get same result. Thanks in advance for your help.
