I had to start my acerpower 1000 four or five times. When it boots into windows, it lasts for about a minute, then shuts off.
When booting into safe mode, the PC will stay on forever. I would think a hardware problem would cause it to always shut off.
This is not a solution, but something I have observed about these machines.
You rock dude!!! I'm looking at those two blown capacitors exactly where you said they'd be. I think it is absolute stupidity for them to try and put a 31/2 inch HD in a box this size. I even found melting on the wires (which have black heat shield around them) that connect from the board to the front panel connectors. They've actually melted to the underside of the HD. Brilliant!

You probably and lets hope so, have an Electro Static Charge Buildup on your desktop. Remove the Power Cord and Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 Seconds plug the Power Cord back in the hit the Power Button. If it boots then you had an Static Charge Buildup. If it does not boot and you say it happened after a power surge then either your Power Supply or Motherboard is possibly damaged. Do you hear fans, hear the disk drive running, see lights, hear the CD Rom click once and see the light on the CD Rom drive com on briefly after you hit the Power Button. If so it would seem that your power supply is ok.
Hi! Try to go to bios menu via F2 or del while system is starting up.Go to sata operation, change IDE to AHCI or vice versa, save settings then try to reinstall os(win xp) again via booting to the disc (F12) and choose cd/dvd or odd...hope this helps...Cheers!!!
It could be a bad power supply. As far as I remember, this unit has a standard ATX 230 watt power supply. It should not be too hard to replace it. Its fairly straight-forward. Its a matter of removing the panel to access the connectors inside (make note of which comes from where) and unscrewing the power supply on the back of the unit. Reverse all actions to install new power supply. If you need more detailed help, reply to this post.
