PSU issue, Computer won't turn on, 5-10 minutes then it turns on.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi overclock.net folks! I seem to have a wierd issue with my computer, or rather the PSU I think. When I plug in the power cable in the wall and want to start my computer it wont turn on, like it's dead sorta (no power to the MB), but if I wait for like 5-10 minutes it starts and everything works.

I'm trying to dig into this and see what's the problem. It's not the wall socket cuz I have tried it with my GF's comp and it powers ON right away.

Help me out guys! ;D

Assuming that it has enough watts take the PSU out of your GF's PC and put it in yours. If it works you need a new PSU.
