    :confused:How can i tell if it is the power supply or the motherboard is not working.
    For a few weeks it keep telling me there is not enough power getting to the vidoe card, and now the comp will not boot up. The power is on but when u go to open the cd drive up it takes a few seconds to open up, and then it closes it self up after a couple of seconds.

    Hey chaz,
    I've gone down that road and it is a long one if you don't do your homework.
    What are the specks of your rig? What Video Card (s) are you running and what size is your PSU?
