Reluctant starter, automagic start
Posted on 2003-03-25
Well time to use some points :-)
One of my computers is behaving weirdly after a hdd install.
If off, pressing the power button doesn't seem to do anything.
Power off/power on on the power strip most of the time makes
the power supply fan spin up momentarily and then stop and
But after a few tries the power off/power on on the power strip
succeeds and the computer boots up normally.
When up, pressing the power button on the pc powers off
the pc without the soft power wait. After this, sometimes
the pc will power itself on automagically after a short while and boot up.
I tried reattaching the connections from the powerswitch and the power
supply to the MB, no joy.
