: nah I'm in Fairbanks. Our main computer store is 2 Geeks and they always try to rip me off when I go in there. Hell, when the blaster worm was going around they sold floppies with the (free) fix for 30 bucks! >.< (never got blaster anyway) Only reason I go in there now is to scope out things to buy elsewhere. The other stores seem to open and close at random lol.
I finally got it booted (I'm not sure how either, I just tinkered abit in my case but didn't really do anything) so I'll run Sandra and see what it comes up with.
: yeah I only have 1 stick of ram
I'll be getting another 512 soon but until then I can't do much but hope it isn't the ram.
I will also be replacing this Power Supply asap. I'll try your suggestion and see what our local stores return policies are. Thanks guys.
In the meantime I'll be keeping my computer on standby. It works fine once it is booted.
