    Default Is my power supply failing?

    I leave the computer on all day and shut it off at night. The past 2 days, in the morning when I press the power button, the fans start but I don't hear the usual beep and the monitor screen remains black. If I turn off the switch on the power supply in the back of the case and turn it on again, the computer will boot to the BIOS, where all settings are at the default. I then exit the BIOS and the computer boots normally. I can then shut it off and/or reboot as much as I want all day with no problem. The problem occurs when the computer is turned off over night. My question is, do you think the power supply is failing?

    It sounds like something, be it your motherboard, cpu, or your psu is wearing out. What are you system specs and what power supply do you have?

    GIgabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
    AMD FX8120 @ 4GHz
    Patriot 1866MHz EL series 2X4GB DDR3
    Powercolour HD 6970 2GB w/XFX 8800GT 512MB Hybrid PhysX
    Creative X-FI titanium HD w/Technics class A 300W amp and tower speakers
    PC P&C 500W PSU
    2TB Seagate
    Coolermaster 690II w/Corsair H100 tucked under the hood
