Survey of PC Failure Mechanisms - Power On
Posted on 2011-09-21
I'd like to know the opinions of Experts:
Situation: A PC starts but it takes more than one press of the power button to get it going.
1) The power supply
2) The power switch
3) The power switch wire/connector at the mainboard
3) The mainboard
If you had this situation and a new power supply didn't fix it, what would be your first notion in diagnosing it?
This isn't homework. I see this situation occasionally and have one I'm dealing with right now where I did replace the power supply to no avail.
Please assign a percentage to each adding to 100% .. unless you can think of another
