Computer turns off then on again at startup
Posted on 2006-05-11
After running fine for a couple of years, my computer has developed a strange problem. When I turn it on everything lights up as normal and the fans start spinning for a split second and then it goes dead for about one second. After this, without me doing anything, it all lights up again and loads normally except my bios is reset.
Is this likely to be a power supply problem? My friend suggested it could be caused by the motherboard battery failing but I'm sceptical about this.
