View Full Version : power on & off at boot

05-15-2002, 10:28 AM
HI all, I have just moved one of my older pc's to a bigger box. It is an Athlon 500, MSI mobo, 512mb ram, 30 gig hd, cdrw, etc. It was working fine in the old box. Now when I boot the power goes on for about 10 to 15 seconds and it shuts off. I moved everything but the power switches because I needed them in the old box. I only had a power switch (on-off) to put in it. Do I need all the other switches. Reset, hd actvity, etc? Could this be the problem? Thanx ahead for any help etrix
